Brief Answer:
Good chance for conceiving

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

Looking at your semen analysis, the total sperm count is a little less however on the brighter side most of them are morphologically normal and also either active or sluggish. With this semen report my conclusion is that you can conceive.
Here are some general instructions

1. Wear only boxer type of underwear
2. Avoid keeping hot objects like laptops on your lap
3. Take cold water showers
4. Avoid smoking
5. Exercise daily ( cardivascular exercises like running, swimming, cycling) for half hour daily
6. Speak with your wife's gynaecologist to know her ovulatory cycles

I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me

My sperm count tested @ one lab is 17.6 million/ml Actively motile 70%,liquefaction within 30 minutes.Dr.Prescribed me to take M-Gam (Glenmark) tablet daily up to 2 months.After taking tablets for 2 weeks I tested at another lab & the reading shows 95 millions/ml, 50 % actively motile & liquefaction with 30 minutes. I also encounter knee pain while this medication.I doubt whether my first lab reading is right & knee pain is side effect of this tablet. I feel my sperm count cannot increase from 17 to 95 within 2 weeks medication. SHall I stop medication? Kindly advice

My husband and I are trying to concieve but just recently had a sperm analysis done that came back as "no sperm". After an ultrasound we found that he has a right epididymal head cyst. Could this be the cause of our sperm analysis results and will we be able to correct it so we can concieve?
