Brief Answer:
Volume, viscosity, count, RBC are abnormal

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the query.
According to your semen analysis:
pH, fructose test, motility are within normal limits.
Whereas volume, viscosity, total sperm count, presence of RBC are abnormal.

Low volume can be seen due to causes like stress, hormonal imbalance, partial retrograde ejavulation etc.
High viscosity can be seen due to infection, hypofunction of seminal vesicles etc.
Low sperm count can be seen due to recent illness, exposure to heat, smoking, alcoholism etc.
Presence of RBC may indicate minor trauma to genital tract or infection etc.

So, discuss these things with your doctor and follow his advice.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the response, please give your review at the end of the discussion.
Take care.
