Hi,

Thanks for query to XXXXXXX Kindly DO SEMEN CULTURE and u may need antibiotics if there is infection.
Normally for unmarried men, semen analysis is not recommended. May I know why it was suggested?
Once the infection is treated, count may improve. Other parameters are normal.
Also interpreting a single analysis report is not advisable, if at all done,needs comparison with multiple reports.
Hope this answers your query, kindly get back for further doubts if any.

thank you sir, actually there was no suggestion for semen analysis. i have been a regular sperm donor for the last 3 years. this time i donated after almost 1 yr gap and they did analysis and said that count is a little low and wbc's are high so i was worried. also i have had 2 exposures to unprotected sex in the last 6 months. i shall do semen culture and inform you the report over the coming week if atthank you sir. all anything needs to be done.

Hi

Thanks for ur reply.
I am surprised that a person like u who is so well informed about health care and sperm donation had unprotected sex.
Kindly take care of yourself, have a stable partner/get married or at-least protect yourself with a condom.

Take care, REGARDS
