Posted on Tue, 6 Sep 2016 in Sexual Health
Question: Hello Sir,
Its about 1 year I got married. I have consulted a Doctor for infertility. I had Ultrasound scan of Scortum and SA and SC test 2 months before. Doctors see the results and advised me to take Maxoza-L powder. Now they are asking me to take another one SA test with SCSA for routine check.

1. Should I give both at a time or just take SA and give after for SCSA ?

2. Is there any possible to get normal concentration, motility, vitality and morphology. Since I am working as software engineer. My work timing is 2 Pm - 12 PM. Usually I sleep around 2 AM and got up at 10 AM.

Brief Answer:
Semen analysis

Detailed Answer:
Your total sperm count and motility are decreased. Ultrasound scan is normal showing normal size testis.
But you haven't mentioned about other medical problems like diabetes or thyroid etc.
You will need a hormonal analysis and a check up with an XXXXXXX to rule out any infection in your genital tract.
In that case correcting them will improve the parameters.
Feel free to ask your doubts with more details. Regards
