I have done this test in septemher as well, at that time active sperm were 50 percent and immotile were 50% pus cells 2-3 hpf with heavy growth of klebsiella.

Brief Answer: It s due to abacterial Prostatitis. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for your query,based on the facts and report of your semen analysis that you have posted it appears that your present semen analysis report is within near normal limits of WHO standards except the fact that % tage of active motile sperm is slightly lower than normal but within the range(15-20%) accepted by infertility centres all over the world and presence of 7-8 pus cells which suggests infection of either prostate or Seminal vesicle. You have increased frequency for urination and pain in groin which strongly goes in favour of infection of prostate (Prostatitis) .You have taken Tab Ceftum for two weeks as a result of which your semen analysis done recently does not show growth of any organisms. Prostatitis takes long time to get resolved completely and one needs to take antibiotics for a minimum period of 4-6 weeks to eradicate the infection completely. Please continue taking antibiotics for one more month this will help to eradicate infection and repeat semen analysis after 6 weeks. Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,I shall be happy to help you Thanks and Regards. Dr.Patil.

Brief Answer: Both of you have to take medication. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for follow up. Please take Ceftum for one more month and repeat your semen analysis after 6 weeks. As regards treatment for Candida infection both of you have to take anti fungal medication like Fluconazole for minimum 10 days to eradicate it completely. Please practice safe and protected sex till she is free from fungal infection. Thanks and Regards Dr.Patil,.
