Thanks for your query.

Following is my reply to your queries :

1) The semen parameters look good. Nothing to worry.

2) There are very few pus cells which indicate infection.

3) Increased viscocity & liquifaction time also suggest infection. Generally they get treated by their own. Its not a major factor to cause infertility.

4) Please take a course of antibiotic prescribed from your doctor. It is good enough to treat the infection and liquifaction.

5) It is advisable to take another test after a course of antibiotic. I am sure your infection can be treated & liquifaction will be normalized.

6) If infection still persists or liquifaction is increased after a course of antibiptic, please get semen culture test done which detects exact organism and sensitive antibiotic.
