Brief Answer:
Semen analysis is normal.

Detailed Answer:
I admire positive outlook
Very happy to answering you

Here you attached report of semen analysis

Count is absolutely normal

Normal count range is from 20 to 120 million/ml

so don't need to worry about count

Motility is more important than count

you have 50 % of motile sperm
which are very good

and 30% of sluggish motile which can be motile in cervical fluid

so I guess your report is absolutely normal

No need of anything

just re flack back why have you done report?
any indications??

If any queries I will always here to help you
hope for the best
Thank you. for using health care
Take care

Brief Answer:
thanks for query

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,

I understand your concerns
1st thing in semen analysis there are always certain immature forms that are immobile, immotile, dead sperm.
This won't be any problem because 50% motile sperm is enough for pregnancy.
Immature forms generated due to head and tail abnormality of sperm and it consists 20 to 30% in normal semen
So no need to worry

2nd this pus cells suggest there is some infections in scrotum and it can affect motility also.
You can discuss with your doctor to treat it with doxycycline 100 mg twice in a day for 14 days.
And normal sperm count with pus cells in your semen is normospermia with secondary infection
So taking a course of antibiotics will improve it further.

As per my opinion your report is normal and you can be a father
It does not suggest infertility
Please do check up of your wife too

I am always here to help you
Best luck for future
Hope you will get best
Thank you

Brief Answer:
dear XXXXXXX XXXXXXX , height and weight do not affect

Detailed Answer:
Hii dear
Thank you for raising concerns
Fertility depends upon our reproduction function
In female it is ovulation which occur in the middle days of menstrual cycle
In male it is due presance of motile sperm in semen

Though it depends upon the way of ejaculation and anatomy of female genital tract also

But it never dependa upon height and weight
In this height and weight donnot mattaer at all
So do not worry ab that

Thank you

My husband is on tpn through a port for 3.5 weeks due to vomitting and other difficulties eating resulting from chemo (ended 4 weeks ago) and radiation(ended 3 weeks ago) for squamous cell carcinoma in base of tongue.

He has been having really bad night sweats lately and when not "flashing" he is really cold all the time. He is infusing the TPN during the day. He is not running a fever. Is it the tpn causing it? What can he do?

He isn't getting sleep he needs. Please advise

"FNAC from right breast lump,[lower quadrant] yield blood mixed aspirate which on microscopy is scantily cellular and shows occasional clusters of benign ductal epithelial cells with myoepithelial cells. However few loosely cohesive clusters of ductal epithelial cells are also seen showing mild pleomorphism and overlapping of the cells. The background cossists of hemorrhages and necrosis." are mention but what is that and what can I do further
