Have fat in semen. Undergone an unsuccessful ICSI treatment. How to eliminate the fat?

My husband has had a semen analysis undertaken (we have undergone an unsuccessful ICSI treatment). The semen analysis indicates 99% immotile and they found fat in the semen sample. Our doctor said she had never seen fat in the semen before - can you advise if this is common and how to reduce or eliminate the fat? Thanks

Thanks for your query.

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Fat in semen is generally due to trauma in genital tract. Sometimes it is due to contamination during sperm collection. I advice you repeat the test after one month in a different centre.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any followup queries you have.
