Brief Answer:
Semen analysis

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Your sperm concentration is within normal limits.40 million /ml
But the motility is not mentioned in detail.

I suggest you to get it done from a reputed lab and send the reports again. Minimum 3 days abstinence has to be there.

According to your report it seems to be normal except for motility as it is not described in detail.

Hope you are convinced. Regards

Hello doctor
We are planning for a child since last 5 months but not able to conceive. Previously my wife was regular in her periods with 28 days cycle. In jan2016 we decided to have a baby. In feb her periods were late by 7 days. In march her periods were early by 5 days. In april her periods were on time. In may16 her period did not came at all but PT was -ve. We consulted a doctor and she advised for ultrasound and other tests like hb%, urine r/e etc. All reports have been attached. An ovarian cyst was detected. She was on medication for several days. Finally her periods came on 22 XXXXXXX and ended on 24th. Consequently we had another tests like vdrl test, semen analysis, reports are being attached. Please review the reports and medications and suggest what to be done for making her conceive. I want to add here that for the last 2 days we have been testing her ovulation through OTK but reports are negative.

Brief Answer:
Semen analysis

Detailed Answer:
Hi
As I mentioned earlier your semen analysis has to be repeated.
You have not enclosed the scan report.
is she having polycystic ovarian syndrome.?
we need to rule out any hormonal issues causing delay in her periods.
If her cycles are not regular then she may not ovulate properly.
so consult a infertility specialist and get thyroid profile ,prolactin estimation and take medications to regularise the cycle.
With proper medicines it can be corrected.not to worry.
hope my answer helps you. Regards
