Thank you Doctor. So the motility is nothing to worry about from the report? I have attached the report images here.

Brief Answer:

Nothing to worry.

Detailed Answer:


You have more than 50% motile sperms (both progressively and sluggishly motile sperms). Of those predominant ones are progressively motile. This is considered satisfactory to parent a child. So I will not be worried with these values.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
