Brief Answer:
Low volume

Detailed Answer:

I understand your concerns.

Sperm volume is less than 1.5 ml. This means hypospermia.

As long as sperms are healthy and good in number, I don't see any reason to worry.

Let me know if you need anymore help.

My husband has been on Treatment to raise his T levels. First he used Testim gel for several months, now he is using injections, which he gives himself at home. My concern is we would like to conceive, and we know these treatments can lower sperm count. He is reluctant to do a Semen analysis, but I think it may be the only way to know if conception is possible. The Urologist he is using has suggested it, and also wants him to start HCG which can raise his sperm count. All very confusing, can you enlighten me?
