Brief Answer: Possibly treated Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. Prolonged liquefaction time usually indicates possibility of infection. Decreased motility of spermatozoa can occur due to many causes like varicocele, maturation defects, transportation abnormalities etc. So, once consult uroandrologist and get examined to find out the cause for abnormal seminal parameters. Go for antibiotic therapy to treat the infection and tablets to improve sperm motility. Possibly with this workup your seminal parameters may improve. Repeat the seminal analysis after two months. If the seminal parameters improve, you can go for natural conception. According to few studies hypercholestrolemia can affect the seminal parameters. Reference : Human Reproduction vol.14 no.6 pp.1516–1521, 1999 Effects of hypercholesterolaemia on Leydig and Sertoli cell secretory function So, better to maintain the cholesterol levels within normal range. Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer, please give your review at the end of the discussion. Take care.
