GROSS EXAMINATION: physical characteristics: Approx. 3 cc's of highly viscid, white coagulum w/ a distinct musky odor.
Coagulation & liquefaction: Within 20 mins, the specimen is liquified to a semitranslucent to turbid viscous fluid.
Viscosity: the viscosity did not appear to be increased.
Sperm Ct: the sperm count ranged from 14.6-16.2 million per mL.
Motility: Approx. 50% of the sperm are motile. The motility is graded, varying from Grade III (good activity w/ tail movements visualized) to grade IV (Full activity w/ tail movements difficult to visualize).
Sperm Morphology: The semen demonstrated an estimated 40% abnormal forms (normal semen demonstrates less than 30%). The abnormal forms are characterized by head defects (amorphous heads and pinheads), head and tail defects (double tails and double heads), neck/mid piece defect (bent). It is also noted that there is a moderate amount of debris present in the background (? artifact).
The semen demonstrated normal volume with normal liquefaction and normal viscosity. However, the sperm count is low, with only half of the sperm motile. The motile sperm however demonstrate excellent motility. The sperm morphology demonstrates an increase in abnormal forms.
Blah Blah Blah...then it recommends examining three to four specimens over a period of two to three mos. &/or seeing a urologist for a consultation.
Can someone help me understand this. The nurse said it is not impossible for me to get PG but that this is probably the reason for taking this long....HELP!
