What causes high viscosity and does that affect motility?
User rating for this question
My analysis shows 4.2 ml volume and 74.4 concentration per ml, which is great. My viscosity is high however at 3 and motility is 38.0. What can cause the high viscosity and could that account for the motility issue? This is just a single sample and I know things can vary, but how bad are these numbers? Lastly, I do take Proscar for hair loss. Many thanks!
