Brief Answer: Low sperm count. low motility & infection Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for posting your query on HealthCareMagic. Before answering your query, I would like to give the parameters considered normal for the bearing children. 1. Volume of semen should be atleast 2 ml per ejaculate. 1. Color: Gray-white 3. Liquefaction time: 20-40 minutes 4. Odor: Fishy 5. pH: Alkaline 6. Sperm counts: 20 million per ml of semen. 7. Motility: Atleast 50% sperms should have active motility 8. Morphology: Atleast 50% sperms should have normal morphology 9. No abnormal cells, red blood cells, pus cells should be present. Presence of pus cells indicates infection of the genito-urinary tract 10. Immature cells should be less than 1%. In your case, the sperm count is less, only 16 million per ml. Only 30% sperms have active motion. 50% sperms are alive and have normal morphology. There is presence of pus cells and abnormal cells. First you need to get treated for infection since, presence of pus cells suggests infection of genito-urinary tract. The abnormal cells need to be examined by studying stained smears of sperms. No comments can be made at this point whether you can bear children or not since first the infection needs to be treated followed by determination of the character of abnormal cells. If you have more queries, I will be glad to answer. Dr Shailja P Wahal
