I'm not an Andrologist but we also have male factor motility issues so though that maybe I could help a little.


I can't say if all those results are normal or not, but I can say that for the following, these are the results that are considered good (according to the World Health organisation):


The appearance (grey-opalescent) is normal

PH: 7.2 and above

Volume: 2.0ml and above

Count: 20 million/ML and above

Progressive motility: 50% or above (here is where I see your results being on the low side)


According to the results you wrote above, your volume is border line at 2.0ml but still normal and good considering the count of 66million. However; to me, it seams there is a motility issue.. Your results show 25% progressive motility when it should be 50%. The other 75% are not swimming like they should and/or not moving at all (45% in your case are none-motile).


One RE had told me that although not impossible to get pregnant with low motility, it can take years and years to achieve. It's after this first DX that we where told we needed IUI or IVF (my dx came later).


Good luck smile.png

a count of 66 million is above average.  20 million is average.  morphology (shape) 70% is good as far as I know.  motility (movement) I don't know about it.  ICSI takes the best sperm & inserts into the egg & you only need one sperm per egg.
