Question: My current sperm count is 170 million/ml. However my motility is 47%.

Rapid linear progression is 18%
Slow linear progression is 18%
Immobile is 53%

Also HOS is 50%

52% of my sperm is normal where as 48% is abnormal. I have been advised to take Hi Q Plus and Paternia tablets for 3 months. Will this help increase my motiltiy? What are the changes of me improving my sperm quality?

Thanks for writing to us. I have gone through your semen analysis report in detail.

According to WHO guideline,2010,your semen analysis report is quite normal.
In case of sperm motility, I want to comment some:
Lower limit of progressive sperm motility is 32% but you have 36% (Rapid + Slow linear progression) which is good one. Also you have to increase sperm motility up to 50% to high up the chance for successful pregnancy. Above prescribed medicines are good one. You need to repeat the semen analysis test after 3 months.

Follow the guideline for lifestyle modification and improving Sperm Quality:
1) Take healthy balanced diet and eat fresh fruits or leafy vegetables.
2) Need Multivitamin (Specially Vitamin-E & C) and Zinc supplements with diet.
3) Regular physical exercise by running/ swimming/treadmill & control body weight.
4) Avoid hot working place and wear loose undergarments.
5) Avoid stress/psychological upset by regular XXXXXXX breathing (20-30 times).
6) Take bath with only cold water and maintain personal hygiene.
7) Quit habit of smoking/ alcohol. You may need psychological counseling.
8) Drink plenty of water/fluids to keep hydrated and active all time.
9) Avoid too frequent sexual intercourse and do it at an interval.
10) Take care of testicle to avoid any kind of trauma/ infection.
11) Periodic health check up to your doctor and measuring blood sugar & BP.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
Wish your good health and successful life.

Hi Sir, I am 30 years male Indian, working in Dubai. My engagement was over last April & marriage is fixed in Dec 2012. last 5.5 I do chat/talk with my would be and we were very happy to share our things each other. She is little fatty in nature. & her period was irregular. Some months its not happening at all. So she went through a physical check up & found there is a syst in her (very minute) and doctor suggests to take medicine. She started taking medicine for 4 months & stopped. But when stopped it, the same problem came again. & 4 -5 Days back she consulted another Doctor & his comments was really shoked to her. He asked to take 8 months continuous treatment regarding this. This made her very dip pressed & started thinking weird. Now she says she hates sex & doesnt want to spoil my life & not interested in marriage. still we both love very much each other. I am so disapppointed now & this may be one of the most struggled moment in my life. Could you please advise me.

I think I might have either gonorrhea or a UTI, but I can t tell. I am honestly really scared and embarrassed so I can t tell anyone. The only symptom I seem to have is burning during urination which appeared the week of Christmas. It s not very severe, something a slight tingle then sometimes an uncomfortable burn but it s not really painful. I have no discharge, swelling, or redness in or around my area. I am a male who has only had sex with one woman twice, about a month before the symptom appeared.
