Dear doctor, please find my recent seman analysis test result sperm count :53 liquification time :more than 2 hours motility :20(non-progressive) since there is a delay in the liqufication time doctor advised us to proceed with IvI. Can you please advise is there any other treatment(tablet or injection or foods to be taken) to improve the liqufication time. we want the natural child XXXXXXX and we are ready to wait .Can you please guide as if IVI is the only solution to this problem?

Brief Answer: Possibly treated Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. Prolonged liquefaction time usually indicates possibility of infection. Decreased motility of spermatozoa can occur due to many causes like varicocele, maturation defects, transportation abnormalities etc. So, once consult uroandrologist and get examined to find out the cause for abnormal seminal parameters. Go for antibiotic therapy to treat the infection and tablets to improve sperm motility. Possibly with this workup your seminal parameters may improve. Repeat the seminal analysis after two months. If the seminal parameters improve, you can go for natural conception. According to few studies hypercholestrolemia can affect the seminal parameters. Reference : Human Reproduction vol.14 no.6 pp.1516–1521, 1999 Effects of hypercholesterolaemia on Leydig and Sertoli cell secretory function So, better to maintain the cholesterol levels within normal range.
