A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
According to your seminal analysis viscosity is abnormal and abnormal forms are more in number.
Increased seminal viscosity can prevent the motility of spermatozoa. The possible causes of high viscosity are poor functioning of the prostate gland or poor functioning of the seminal vesicles, infections etc.
Abnormal forms can be seen in structural abnormalities like varicocele.
Seminal culture and transrectal ultrasound can give some idea regarding your problem.

So, please consult your doctor and get evaluated.
Take care.
