Can my semen be the reason for infertility problems?
We are TTC for almost 2 years. My DH had a semen analysis. The results are:
count: 50 Million/ML
slo progressive: 10%
non progressive: 60%
I am afraid whether the motility and morphology is the main issue for our pregnancy. Kindly advice? What can be done further.
Thank you for your query.
Seeing the semen analysis report if it was done in a reliable lab and with 3-5 days of sexual abstinence, the report does not show parameters which may be responsible for sub or infertility. The count of 50 million with 30% motility and 50% being of normal morphology spermatozoa, it is ok for a man with these parameters to impregnate a woman. If you are too anxious to conceive you can go to a doctor and opt for intrauterine insemination with ovulation induction where in the sample can be concentrated to increase the chances of having a pregnancy. The female parameters also need to be investigated simultaneously regarding ovulation, fallopian tubal patency and uterine factors.
Hope that answers your query. Have a good day.
