Thanks Doctor for the reply.

1) But in the report it says normal count should range between 60 to 150 Million per ML. But my count shows 25 Million.

2) Also they say 1ML volume is very low.

Can you specify in detail about these two queries ?

Brief Answer:
Your report is normal

Detailed Answer:

Normally the count should be more than 15 million per ml. Your count 25 million per ml is normal.

Volume one ml is also normal. I dont see anything to worry about.

Ok doctor. I need some detailed analysis, please.

You said one ML volume is normal. How significant is the volume and why is motility more important than volume?.
Is the increased count per ML has more chances of getting pregnant ?.
If possible, Overall how do you rate the report on the scale of 10?.
What is the approximate % of chance in getting pregnant in every ovulation cycle based on my report data?

My report also showed pus cells : 1-2 HPF, what does this mean ?. Does it have problem with fertility ?

Brief Answer:
Your semen analysis is good

Detailed Answer:

Normal volume is 1 ml as WHO criteria. Moreover volume varies and generally increases in next analysis.

Motility is important as low motility is known to cause infertility.

50 % is normal motility which you have already. I rate your semen analysis as 10/10.

Pus cells are normally present in less quantity and not a problem to cause fertility.

Let me know if you need any more help.
