Semen Analysis Result: What Seems to be the Problem?

Got the semen analysis result after the collection done by DH yesterday. . . and i was a bit surprised with it though.

Here’s what it says:

I think the semen analysis results speak for itself. There is indeed a little problem with the sperm count and the motility. The findings on severe oligoteratozoospermia and asthenozoozpermia is bugging me.

Oligoteratozoospermia and asthenozoozpermia are indeed factors that can hinder fertility but of course, i know this is not as bad as it sounds. Oligoteratozoospermia is low sperm count in layman’s term. Asthenozoozpermia on the other hand is slower sperm movement or motility. These two are main factors for the sperm to reach the egg, and we indeed have a little problem with these.


I never expected such results. Of course, we both did not expect it. I don’t know with the morphology if that poses another problem, but based on the references, it seems too low for the 15% normal.

I know. This means we have to go to a urologist as well.


But the OB said, there is still hope, as long as the sperm count is not zero, and she said low sperm count can be remedied.


That of course, made us feel better.
