Brief Answer:
Sperm count is within the normal range.

Detailed Answer:

I can understand your concern.

I have gone through the results of your semen analysis.

1. The sperm count is with in the normal range (15-200 millions/mL)
2. Rapid progressive motility is NIL (Normal range: 32 - 72%)
3. Sluggish linear progressive motility 60% (should be more than 25%)

The extent of progressive sperm motility is related to pregnancy rates.
The combined rapid & sluggish progressive motility should be more than 50%

4. Total normal forms are 29% (Normal should be more than 60%)

So, abnormal forms are more than normal.

The report has to be clinically correlated (should be evaluated by the treating doctor).
Hope this answers your query.
Best regards

Thank you Doctor.

Few more questions:
can rapid progressive motility be increased by following a food diet?
Also..can normal forms be increased by following a food diet?

Please suggest if any fruits/veggies can help in increasing the same.

Answered by Dr. Mohammed Taher Ali 8 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Yes, they can be increased by certain foods

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your reply & the compliments.

In order to increase the motility & the normal forms of the sperms, the following measures are useful:

1. Avoid alcohol, smoking or stress
2. Take healthy balanced diet rich in protein & vegetable, low in fat, fruits, & minerals. Protein rich diet includes meat, fish, poultry (if you are a non-vegetarian), otherwise pulses like lentils, whole grains along with fruits and vegetables are useful. Dry fruits like walnuts, pistachio, melon seeds are also effective.
3. Avoid hot baths, hot tubs, or using lap top on your lap for long time
4. Wear loose comfortable cotton undergarments.
5. Keep your weight in check and do regular exercise

Hope the suggestions given above could be useful to you.
Kindly rate the answers if you do not have any follow up query.

Hi, I have been using Levazeo 25mg 3 times a day for the last 1 year and looks like the sperm motility in me has decreased over the past year. Just wanted to know if this is really due to the effect of Levazeo. I have 2.10months kid and my wife had an abortion after few months of the birth of my kid.
