Semen Analysis Results

13 December 2012

They’re not nearly as bad as my husband was making them out to be.  That doesn’t mean we don’t have some issues to work through but it is certainly something we can deal with.

The first issue was volume.  They want to see 1-5 milliliters in a sample and he only had .8 milliliters.  But we knew this was an issue after he gave his sample. He said he was nervous.  The less the volume the less they have to do all these other tests.

His sperm count was OK though.  There was 11.5 million in that .8ml so the doctor wasn’t worried about that at all.  If his next sample has more volume there will be more sperm…of course.

Sperm morphology – not good. this is where we have an issue.  Only 2% of his sperm have a normal shape. Meaning the head/body/tail.  The doctor said he needs to cut out all caffeine, alcohol, cigarettes….basically anything at all that is bad for him.  We already have him on a special vitamin the RE prescribed and a folic acid vitamin, so we just have to basically cut the alcohol out of his diet.

They do think our best shot at getting pregnant is through and IUI which is insemination.  What they’ll do is take another sample from him and then wash it to get rid of all the bad sperm and only insert the good sperm into my uterus.    She does think we should do that in January and that the results of the semen analysis weren’t so bad that we can’t move forward with it. (huge relief)

  5. In a comparison of several other tests used in the determination of infertility in couples, a semen analysis report is declared as a standard procedure throughout the world. The standardization of testing the sperm concentration and semen volume is done for a more accurate calculation of sperm output.
