Question: Hello doctor, I am Manoj from tamilnadu. I am married since Aug, 2015. In Feb last year I.e 2016 my dear wife suffered a miscarriage and thereafter for many months we didn't try to conceive because we thought to give my wife some time to bounce back to mental normalcy. Recently last month we decided and tried but my wife didn't conceive. So, I have decided to go for a semen analysis. My report is as follows.
1. Period of abstinence - 3 days.
2. Method of collection - masturbation.
3. Liquefaction time - 30 mins.
4. Quantity - 2 ml
5. Appearance - cloudy
6. colour- greyish white
7. pH of semen - 7.2
8. Viscosity - viscous
9. Fructose - positive

Motility; End of 1/2 hr -82%

End of 1 hr - 78%
End of 2 hr - 75%
End of 3 hr - 72%
Grade of motility - 3-4

Sperm count: 78 millions/ ml

Other findings:
Abnormal forms - 15 to 20% ( mainly constricted headed)
Immature cells : occasional spermatids seen
Pus cells : 2-3 / hpl
Epithelial cells : nil / hpl.

Is the report normal?
Please throw light on the "other findings "?
Is it ok to find occasional spermatids in semen?

Thank you doctor
Have a nice day

Brief Answer:
You have Asthanospermia

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for uploading your Semen report .

Based on the report I would state that your sperm count ,viscosity,liquefaction time ,ph ,sperm count etc are well within normal range as compared to WHO standards except motility of sperms .

It is grade one and grade 2 motile sperms which are capable to move forward through cervical canal into uterine cavity and to fertilize female egg to result in to pregnancy .

Your report does not mention about percentage of grade 1 and grade 2 sperms and has mentioned only grade 3-4 motility which suggests suggests that you have what is called as Asthanosprmia which needs to be reconfirmed by repeating semen analysis .

As regards other finding it is within acceptable and normal range.

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.

Hi, Am 3 days before period, but had intercourse with husband at around day 19 of cycle. Started without condom, finished with one. Sore breasts day after and have continued for a week, hot flushes two days after and have had extreme fatigue for about 4 days, as well as increased appetite. Have done pregnancy test but negative. However, have four children, 9 pregnancys in total, last 3 (4th child, miscarriage and termination) were all pull out method, so am extremely fertile. Last pregnancy was a year ago and I was 35. Age doesnt seem to present a barrier either. Could I be pregnant or is it likely to be something else.

I was diagnosed with a missed miscarriage I was supposed to be 10weeks but the embryo hadn t grown it measured 6.5wks. On yesterday I took 200 mg of Cytotec every four hours times six doses. I started at 5 AM and it is 11 AM I passed several clots. I was in pain from 9 AM to 5 AM. I was fine until now 9pm the next day. My upper & lower abdomen, back & thighs are hurting terrible I can t function. I had just a little bleeding here & there since I passed the clots. My MD ask me to bring whatever I passed to him in. He informed me that it was only clots no fetus/ embryo and I should pass it later on that day or night. Well I never passed anything after the clots. Is this normal? What s to be expected now? Is my thighs suppose to hurt? Thanks in advance.
