Finding Sperm in urine is not so common ,it is seen in case of retrograde ejaculation( semen instead of coming out goes back in the urinary bladder.only a part or whole can go back in the urinary bladder.Please get your semen tested whether it contains sufficient number of actively motile sperm or not

General Surgeon Dr. Rajinder Bajoria's  Response
non-motile sperm means sperm don`t move in the semen ,which can be seen under the microscope.Non motile sperm will not move up through the cervix & don`t enter uterus from vagina .So chances of pregnancy comes down .The exact cause for non motile / slow and sluggish motility of the sperm is not known. Tobacco ,under Nutrition, certain drugs, hormones and alcohol has bad effects on the motility of the sperm.. These factors and other effects which can cause low sperm count and abnormal sperms. now a days certain drugs have come in the markets which increase motility & quality of sperm in the semen.My few male infertility patient has got benefited.Most which contains Vita mine-E ,Antioxidants,co-Enzyme etc.
