Hi all,

My wife 25 and I 34 are going through initial fertility investigation. The doctors found out that everything is ok with my wife. She released the egg. Now the doctor asked us to wait for 2 weeks to see if she is pregnant (we will go for another blood work. My doctor put me on multi vitamin (Fertil Pro and coenzyme Q10 and ask me to take them for 3 months and do another semen analysis.

I had a semen analysis done 3 months ago Picture attached (this was before we went to new life (our fertility clinic). My doctor said that my results are low but I want to know exactly how low are my numbers and how much is my count, what is mortality, morphology and what's the other thing? If anyone can help me out and restarting the results that would be great.

Thanks
Cheesecake

You should ask your doctor what it means and I could be wrong, but it looks like your motile number is 6.59 million when they want it to be 9 million. Anything less that 1 million motile is considered infertile. It's not a great number and it could make it take longer to conceive but I don't think it would explain infertility.

Thanks Cotton... Does it say anything about sperm count and morphology?

43 million and it doesn't seem to mention morphology or at least not in a way I can read. Maybe the round cell?

 

The count doesn't matter as much as the # that are motile.
