Semen Analysis and Presence of Pus Cells

Patient: Semen Report- Motility-70%, Active-60%, Sluggish-10%, Dead-30%, Pus Cells-2-3HPF, Morphology-20% Abnormal, Sperm Cpunt-50 million per ml. Please advise on pus counts and medication for the same if required.

Doctor: Pus cells usually represent white blood cells (WBC) in the semen. WBC can damage sperm by impairing motility and causing sperm DNA damage. This can cause a problem with fertilization of the egg. Excess WBC is usually seen in infection or unwanted inflammation in the male reproductive tract. The problem can be treated with antibiotics, anti-inflammatories and anti-oxidants.
