You sperm count is normal,and the motility is above average. But you seem to have some pus cells in your semen indicating infection.You should take an atibiotic for 10 days.Then repeat the semen analysis after 2-3 months.
Meanwhile you can take Fertisure M once daily to improve you sperm quality.

Thanks for your reply..I have few more queries
1. My motility is 70 % and what should be the normal range for motility?
2. Should i go for any treatment for vericocele? I am unmarried and during medical checkup doctor noticed vericocele and ordered semen analysis. I hope there is not much relationship between hepatico jejunostomy surgery and sperm count.I had a semen analysis one month before my hepaticojejunostomy surgery and the count was 7 million/ml and my health was not good at that time due to obstructive jaundice.Can i neglect that result?
3. In my semen analysis report normal range of sperm count is mentioned as 60-150millions/ml.Why it is like that? Why they are giving a bit higher normal range?
Answered by Dr. Rhea Chanda 1 hour later
Firstly,very good motility is about 90%.But above 70% is acceptable.
Varicocele can cause decreased motility and sperm count sometimes so yes,you should be treated for that.Your surgery doesnt have any direct relation to the sperm count so you can disregard any report of the semen analysis done then.Your current reports matter.The minimum sperm count should be at least 20 million and anything less than that is abnormal. So are above that range. Your counts may be low due to the varicocele so if you get treated for that,you should repeat your semen analysis after 3 months.

What are the treatment options available for vericocele?
Answered by Dr. Rhea Chanda 11 hours later
Varicocele usually requires surgery.In recent times,new procedures like varicocele embolisation are becoming popular.

My sperm count tested @ one lab is 17.6 million/ml Actively motile 70%,liquefaction within 30 minutes.Dr.Prescribed me to take M-Gam (Glenmark) tablet daily up to 2 months.After taking tablets for 2 weeks I tested at another lab & the reading shows 95 millions/ml, 50 % actively motile & liquefaction with 30 minutes. I also encounter knee pain while this medication.I doubt whether my first lab reading is right & knee pain is side effect of this tablet. I feel my sperm count cannot increase from 17 to 95 within 2 weeks medication. SHall I stop medication? Kindly advice

My husband and I are trying to concieve but just recently had a sperm analysis done that came back as "no sperm". After an ultrasound we found that he has a right epididymal head cyst. Could this be the cause of our sperm analysis results and will we be able to correct it so we can concieve?
