Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hello
Doctor :   These reports are normal.
User :   what does rapid progessive mean?
Doctor :   Rapid progression of the sperm is required for the sperms to pass through the uterus
Doctor :  
where there are multiple resistance against the swimming of the sperms.
User :   Also I was wondering what does Sperm M/100 and Sperm NOR/100 stand for?
Doctor :  
Only when the sperm has the quality of rapid progression that they are capable of attaining the swimming in the uterus.
Doctor :   If they are slow progressive the swimming cannot be achieved in the uterus.

Doctor :  
The next query
Doctor :  
sperm motility/100 refers to the number of motile sperms per 100 sperms.
Doctor :  
If means that for every 100 sperms there are 61 sperms which are rapidly progressing.
Doctor :  
Have you followed?
User :   yes
Doctor :   And hence all the reports are indicating normality.
Doctor :  
Do you have any other query?
User :   I'm assuming Sperm Nor/100 66 would mean that for every 100 sperms I have 66 normal ones?
Doctor :   motility of sperms refers to the ability of sperms that can swim.
Doctor :  
This is the normal function of the sperm.
Doctor :  
And that way you are also right.
Doctor :  
But it is mainly this functional aspect that is looked for after assessing if the sperms have normal structure.
