SO DH got his results and read them to me over the phone, I can't find a consistent chart or results key on the internet. So since you all have great resources, I thought I'd share so you can tell me if this is normal:

Liquification: 25 mins

Volume 2.2

Concentration 137.5 million per mil

Viscosity Normal

PH 7.0 (saw online this was low)

Motility 56%

Motion 33% rapidly progressing (sounds low)

Total motile 169.4

morphology 43%

What do you think of these numbers??? thanks

I found my DH's report and it has the norm range on it so here is norm.....

volume...... 2 ml or more

count........20 million/ml or more

motility %.......50% or more

Total motile......20 million or more

forward progression........2-4

viscocity........1-2

PH.......7.2

Normal morphology %........30% or more

Agglutination........ 0-1 none, 1=mild, 2=significant, 3=severe

Semen volume

Normal:

2-6 milliliters (mL) (0.002-0.006 L, SI units) per ejaculation

Abnormal:

An abnormally low or high semen volume is present, which may sometimes cause fertility problems.

Liquefaction time

Normal:

20-30 minutes after collection

Abnormal:

An abnormally long liquefaction time is present, which may indicate an infection.

Sperm count

Normal:

40 million spermatozoa per ejaculate or more

0 sperm per milliliter if the man has had a vasectomy

Abnormal:

A very low sperm count is present, which may indicate infertility. But a low sperm count does not always mean that a man cannot father a child. Men with sperm counts below 1 million have fathered children.

Sperm shape (morphology)

Normal:

More than 70% of the sperm have normal shape and structure.

Abnormal:

Sperm can be abnormal in several ways, such as having two heads or two tails, a short tail, a tiny head (pinhead), or a round (rather than oval) head. Abnormal sperm may be unable to move normally or to penetrate an egg. Some abnormal sperm are usually found in every normal semen sample. But a high percentage of abnormal sperm may make it more difficult for a man to father a child.

Sperm movement (motility)

Normal:

More than 60% of the sperm show normal forward movement.

Abnormal:

Sperm must be able to move forward (or "swim") through cervical mucus to reach an egg. A high percentage of sperm that cannot swim properly may impair a man's ability to father a child.

Semen pH

Normal:

Semen pH of 7.2-8.0

Abnormal:

An abnormally high or low semen pH can kill sperm or affect their ability to move or to penetrate an egg.

White blood cells

Normal:

No white blood cells or bacteria are detected.

Abnormal:

Bacteria or a large number of white blood cells are present, which may indicate an infection.
