Brief Answer: Get a complete investigation Detailed Answer: Hi and tank you so much for this query. I am so sorry to hear about the worries this test has generated for you. I understand your worries and any man who desires being a father one day cannot pretend not to get concerned by these results. But before you get too concerned, let us examine the facts. The results show that you have a decreased sperm number and its motility not the best. The number, 29million/ml, is a normal value doesn't qualify to say you have a low sperm count. It is simply on the lower side of normal but still normal(15-2000million/ml). Unless you have had any sexually related difficulties or difficulties in fathering a child, I would advice that there is no need to do any other thing in light of these results. Even persons with XXXXXXX low sperm count(less than 15million/ml) only get to see a doctor if they fail to impregnate a lady or father a child after 1year of trying. This is to say that unless there are other complains beside these laboratory findings, you need no medical attention at this moment. This test is only guiding and cannot directly tell who is going to be able to father a child an who would not. This is because we actually need just one to get the job done and the increased number only increases the likelihood and not a guarantee. many with a lower sperm count do get to father children while some persons with normal sperm count still fail to accomplish the same task. Only difficulties with father a child after one year of trial should prompt for any further medical attention. I hope this addresses your query fully. I wish you well and please feel free to ask for clarifications if need be. Thank you for using our services. Dr. Ditah MD

Brief Answer: Please, talk to a fertility expert! Detailed Answer: Hi and thanks for following up with me. It takes a man and a woman to be able to have a child. Your preliminary findings are not abnormal and your wife should be evaluated too. If a problem is identified, then that may be the solution and not asking you to improve on what is not abnormal. If at the end of the day, you both turn out not to have any problems, then it may just be taking longer than normal. In this case, you would need to be counseled on fertility to help increases your chances. If they should fail to help you get a child, then measures like invitro fertilization, intra uterine insemination, etc can be tried. But for now, first things first. Talk to a fertility expert with your wife to see if there is anything that should be addressed or done differently before pursuing costly and invasive methods of getting you both to have a child. I hope you find this helpful. I wish you both well and hope you soon become the father you long to.Thanks so much for using our services and please feel free to ask for more clarifications if need be. Dr. Ditah, MD.
