Abnormal motility: It sounds like you're talking about abnormal motility. The sperm dying within two hours is not important. The percentage of sperm moving about abnormally is important. ...Read more

Is there a difference between a fertile sperm and infertile sperm? I mean the shape and the viscosity

Is there a difference between a fertile sperm and infertile sperm? I mean the shape and the viscosity

Here are some...: The significance of sperm shape and semen viscosity has evolved & changed over the decades especially over the past 10-15 yrs. Currently, normal sperm shape appears in only about 4%, and semen is expected to liquefy in 30 minutes; if not, high viscosity is considered but its significance remains unknown. For infertility, make sure both parties need to be simultaneously evaluated and counseled. ...Read more

Volume 3.5, viscosity liquefaction time >1 hr, sperm count 78, active motile 40 %, sluggish 10%, non motile 50%. Does non motile 50% means infertile?

Volume 3.5, viscosity liquefaction time >1 hr, sperm count 78, active motile 40 %, sluggish 10%, non motile 50%. Does non motile 50% means infertile?

No: It is mildly abnormal I would repeat the semen analysis to see how it varies. And the morphology is important as well. But that does not mean you will not be able to have a child. It is in truth a very mild change. ...Read more

Semen analysis: First, both of you should be evaluated for infertility if you have been trying for over 1y to conceive a child.

Sa:motility (rapid)=19.4%-slow=14%-immotile=59.6%/total sperm count=56mill/abnormal forms=80%/vitality=45%/viscosity=normal. What's your opinion?

Sa:motility (rapid)=19.4%-slow=14%-immotile=59.6%/total sperm count=56mill/abnormal forms=80%/vitality=45%/viscosity=normal. What's your opinion?

See answer: If you compare the results with the 2010 world health organization reference values for normal semen parameters, this semen sample is close to being within normal limits: sperm count very good, morphology adequate, and motility and vitality slightly low. Not knowing any further details, might consider a repeat semen sample at some point given variability that can occur. Hope this helps. ...Read more

My Semen analysis report is. Volume 2.5 Color. Milky white Reaction. Alkaline Viscosity. Visus Liquification time. 20min. Total sperm count. 84% Acti?

Semen analysis: The results are approximately normal, but "84%" is not a number usually reported in such tests: "84%" of what? If it is "84%" of normal with respect to the average number of active sperm at your age, it is a good report, confirming male fertility. ...Read more

Pls interpret. Volume 3. 5, pH 8, viscocity liquefaction time >1 hr, total sperm count 78, active motile 40 %, sluggish motile 10%, non motile 50%?

Here are some...: Overall, your semen analysis is reasonable but higher viscosity for male fertility; for confirmation, repeat it in 6-8 weeks from current test after 3-day abstinence. Note: your doc for male infertility is the best one to correlate the findings with your individual concerns; about 50% of infertitlty are due to female factors, 30% being due to male's, and 20% being due to both's. So, be evaluated.. ...Read more

I have0 sperm. My sonography report says that my testes aresmall and I have varicocele. My hormonal reports say that my FSH and LH is high and TSH and testosterone is normal. What does it mean?

I have0 sperm. My sonography report says that my testes aresmall and I have varicocele. My hormonal reports say that my FSH and LH is high and TSH and testosterone is normal. What does it mean?

Testicular failure: Although it is difficult to interpret you question due to typos and abbreviations, it appears you have primary testicular failure. A high fsh and lh are indicative of this. What doesn't make sense is your normal testosterone. This should suppress lh. Are you taking exogenous testosterone supplements? This can also cause small testes. You need endocrinology and urology evaluations. ...Read more

How do diabetes make they're low sperm cells high??

How do diabetes make they're low sperm cells high??

Spelling and grammar: Hi. Do you mean "How do diabetICS make THEIR low sperm cell count go up"? Diabetes per se doesn't cause a low sperm count. You're young to have chronic complications, although it's not impossible. See a fertility clinic, but don't assume your diabetes is what's causing your low sperm count. Good luck! (And practice spelling and grammar). :-) ...Read more

How would you know if you have a high enough sperm to have a baby?

How would you know if you have a high enough sperm to have a baby?

Semen analysis: Will give you overall sperm count & % motile and % normal forms. Need > 39 million sperm per ejaculation, 40% should be motile & at least 4% normal forms. This refers to "natural insemination". You can still make a baby with very few sperm using invitro fertilization techniques. In fact even single sperm can be removed from a testis & "injected" into an ovum which can then be implanted into uterus. ...Read more
