Mrs. Smith,

I am sorry, I cant help with this. I just didn't want to read and run. To me it looks like they saw 16 million "mobile" sperm!! I am not sure what numbers are good and what arent. My DH has azoospermia, which means he doesn't have any. :sadface:

Anyway, I hope someone that can help you comes along quicky. Try posting this in the male factor thread at the top!!!

Looks okay

I'm no expert - but I think those results are okay.

You need a count of at least 20 million - so the count is great at 56 million

13% normal forms is fine as well , it might seem like that's low, but most sperms are "seconds" and not very well formed, so don't stress. That's a pretty good score I think.

The only bit I'm not sure about is your motility score. Paul will be along soon to advise I'm sure, but overall, this doesn't look too bad to me...?

I'm only basing this on my DH's terrible sperm results, so I'm not expert in these things, but I thought that might be some comfort while you wait for others to comment. I am pregnant at the moment, via IVF, with much, much worse scores than these. So don't lose hope!

Love, Sarah xxx

RE: Please help read SA results

Hi from me also,

I hope that you have had some reassuring information from Sperm Scientist, but I will add to whatever she may have said.

As has been said the sperm concentration (count) is very good and the total sperm motility is also good, although this does depend upon how good this motility is, as the quality of motility is as important as the percentage of motile sperm. Sperm morphology can be measured by either of two criteria these being called WHO criteria where >30% normal sperm is acceptable, and Kruger criteria where >10% is acceptable. So it would depend upon how the laboratory measured the morphology. But by either approach he has a good number of motile normal sperm in his sample.

The MAR test is a test for sperm autoantibodies, which can coat the sperm and reduce the performance as they try to swim through your cervical mucus. If only 10% of the sperm are truly agglutinated (stuck together) then this is not to bad a picture.

But as is always the case you are a couple, and how fertile you are will influence how successful these sperm will be in getting you pregnant. So make sure that you have been fully investigated.

Good luck,
