Brief Answer:
Semen culture and sensitivity test

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Staph infection is generally due to contamination of semen sample by organisms in skin of penis. Hence this infection report is not reliable.

I suggest you get semen culture and sensitivity test done once again after washing tip of penis. You can take antibiotics accordingly.

Brief Answer:
Boosting not available for normal count

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Normal sperm count should be 15 million per ml.

Your sperm count is normal and does not need treatment.

To be specific for your query regarding boosting, there are no specific medicines available for generalised boosting. Such a concept of boosting does not exist when semen count is normal.
