Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Semen analysis provide general information on fertility,they may not look at every aspect of the semen. Some men with normal results may have difficulty conceiving and some men with abnormal results may not have any problems.

Viscosity refers to the thickness of the semen- this was reported as normal
Volume or amount of semen is 3 ml- this is normal because it should be greater than 2ml
Sperm count 15 million- this is slightly below the norm of 20 million

Non motile 85%- this means that 85% of the sperm were not moving, this is higher than normal. At least 50% of the sperm should be motile.

Morphology refers to the shape and structure of the sperm- at least 30% of these should be normal. In your case only 40% are abnormal which means 60% have normal morphology which is good.

So in summary , the sperm count is a little below the norm and the motility is also low but the other aspects are ok.

I hope this helps

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

Look, your report indicates low sperm count. Because, according to the volume, it should be over 45 million.

Motility is lower than required.

Pus cells and RBCs are within normal limit.

So, you have to undergo meticulous investigation like hormonal profile, and ultrasound scan of scrotum.

And most importantly, consult with an infertility specialist for clinical correlation.
