    Default Help with semen analysis results?

    Hi everyone
    Just wondering if anyone can give me a lite bit of help interpreting DH's results as the dr was no help and we have a wait to see a FS.
    The concentration is 62 x10^6/ml. Is that 62 million per mil??
    Normal forms is 20%, is that bad?
    Rapidly progressive is 57%
    Slowly progressive is 9%
    Non progressive is 1%
    Non motile is 33% (that sounds like a lot to me?)

    Any input anyone could give me would be really really appreciated!

    I'm no expert but the counts sound pretty reasonable to me

    Yes, it is million per ml, and they say anything above 20 is good.

    They hope for sperm which are rapidly progressive to be at >25% or rapidly/slowly progressive combined to be >50%.

    As for normal forms... they expect up to 85% to be abnormal... and therefore 15% need to be good - the fact that your partner has 20% good is even better.

    My hubby has issues on all areas.... his count was 4 million per ml, Rapidly progressive 30%, and slowly progressive 10%. Normal forms was only 8%. Needless to say we are going for IVF with ICSI (one sperm one egg petri dish fertilisation). Start my first injections tonight.

    Goodluck with your journey.

    Thank you so much for your reply I was just getting confused whether 20% normal of 62 million meant it was considered low.
    Good luck with your ivf journey, hope it's a quick one!

    Sorry just one more question for anyone that can help, I've been doing a bit of reading and morphology is mentioned often....is that the same as normal forms?? Coz his results don't have a morphology result on them?

    I would think so. Where they say 'form' it's probably the same as 'shape' and therefore the morphology

    Yep, Morphology is whether the sperm is normal or abnormally shaped. Hubby had his SA done through Douglas Hanly Moir and it says "normal forms".

    Sorry I didn't reply sooner.
