Can chronic prostatitis cause pus cell in semen?

I did a semen analysis and my results were : 6ml volume liqui less than 15min and total count of sperms 30million , my grade where 0% grade 4, 0percent grade 3, 5 percent grade 3 and 95percent grade 1(immotile)i got 70percent of abnormal forms and 6-8PUS and 3-4RBCs and 1-2 Spermatogenic cells. I did urine test to check on prostatitis but no infection was detected although i have many of the symptoms so the Dr. suggested that it might be chronic nonbacterial prostatitis My dr check for varicocele and it was only detected using ultra sound and he said that is very minor. The question is can chronic prostatitis cause this semen result given into account the pus found ? do i have anything to fear ?

You have to repeat your semen analysis after three days of abstinence. The pus cells elevation is mild and not raised to a significant level.
So it doesn't seem to be due to a prostate problem as urine test also normal.

I suggest you investigate with semen culture as well to exclude infection.

You need to be given multivitamin and hey Forte like a tablet for improving sperm motility.

Smoking also can be responsible, so avoid it if having a habit.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
