    Jessesgirl,

    We went to GP today. She said it is quite common and there is no particular reason for miscarriage. When I told the GP that I had high abnormal sperm in my semen results, the GP said the miscarriage could be due to abnormal sperm. I am not convinced about that. Because only a good sperm can swim and reach the egg. Could someone tell me if miscarriages happen due to abnormal sperm. What is the solution for such a problem. My wife and are really depressed at the moment.

    Thanks,
    raj

    Thanks April78. So, even if my sperm reaches egg there is a possibility that my sperm has a defect? How can I prevent this in future? Any advise would be a great help. Thanks.

    I am a newbie to this forum. I went overseas in June and While I was there for holidays I got the SA test done just to make sure everything normal. My results were as below.

    Impression - Moderate OLigozoospermia

    Volume - 3 ml

    Color - Greyish white

    Sperm count - 11 millions/ml

    Motility

    Active - 40%
    Sluggish - 30%
    Non motile - 30%

    Morphology

    Normal forms - 60%
    Abnormal forms - 40%

    I went to a GP in Melbourne in October. The GP advised me to get an semen analysis done in Melbourne. The results looked worse.

    Volume - 3.4 ml

    Conc - 42.8

    Prog. Motility % - 48

    Total Motility % - 63

    Total Mot. Conc. - 91.7

    Abnormal forms % - 96

    pH - 7.9

    Alive % - 65

    WBC - 0

    Classification - semen parameters outside normal range

    Comments - Abnormal Morphology: Head defects

    Sperm antibodies IBT - Not detected


    Can someone please tell me how bad are my results. Can my sperm become normal with some tablets or treatment? I am 40 yrs old and my partner is 31 yrs. We want to have a baby and after these results I am feeling low. I don't smoke and am a social drinker. I mostly eat home made food. Any suggestions or help on my SA results would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Hi, The results will vary depending on how long you abstain from masterbation/sex for and ideally your sample should be analysed within a time frame. Dh always did his sample at home and we had to have it in the clinic within the hour. He's had many analysts done since 2007 and his results have been up and down but we had no issue having our boys via IVF. Prior to trying for ds1 after told we would need be best to pursue the IVF path he started taking "fertility blend for men" (there is also "fertility blend for wimen" in which I also took, supposed to be good for egg quantity/quality) On the day of egg collection, our first cycle when he gave a fresh sample we were advised that his sample was perfect and we were asked "why did you need to do IVF?" because all results were within normal limits. Was obviously just a really good sample this day!

    For an idea of his previous results fyi;

    March 2007
    abstinence 2days
    Volume 5.4
    A. motility 40%
    B. slow progressive 14%
    C. non progressive 15%
    D. immotile 41%
    total progressive A+B= 54%
    morphology 21% normal forms

    Feb 2010
    abstinence 21days
    Volume 3.4
    A. motility 15%
    B. slow progressive 20%
    C. non progressive 10%
    D. immotile 55%
    total progressive A+B= 35%
    morphology 30% normal forms

    With ICSI they pick the best sperm then inject each egg so this may give you a better chance. I would be seeing a specialist asap who will assess your situation and decide the best option for you.
