Hi, Me and my husband are in IIC for 2 years and this month we decided to go for SoS IUI ... We had my husband s semen analysis and here is the report of it.. morphology: normal : 3%, head piece defects : 48% (amorphous / tapered) , midpiece defects : 35% (bent midpiee / cytoplasmic droplets), tail defects: 12% (coiled / bent), immature forms/ cells: 2% (immature). They have a comment in the below as WAI - Asthenoteratozoospermia. Please let me know what all the count means? Is that fine..we go for IUI with this? Or he has to take some medication to improve the quality..if so ..please tell me what are those medications .. AWAITING your reply, Lakshmi

Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das.

The accepted count of morphologically normal sperm is 04%. So, there is low normal sperm.

SO, in this condition, it will be difficult to go for IUI.

Consult with your treating doctor about coenzyme q and antioxidant therapy.
