User :   oh ok
User :   i understand now
Doctor :   Now,4. about the morphology, which is also fine.
Doctor :   5. About the motility, I would like to tell you that there are four grades of sperms-A,B,C,D on basis of their motility.
Doctor :   And your sperms have no much motility, which is a big problem as A & B sperms are more active in causing fertlisation.
Doctor :   C & D are very slow and difficult to cause fertilisation.
Doctor :   So, I feel you need to go for Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection which can solve your problem .
Doctor :   Hope you are following.
User :   yes, but is there any treatment to improve motility?
User :   without ICSI?
Doctor :   There are many recommendations but have not been proved worthy to bring a great change.
Doctor :   Foods rich in Zinc, Molybdenum are recommended.
