Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Sperm analysis looks at different (but not all) aspects of the semen.It is important to remember that men with normal semen results may have difficulty conceiving and men with abnormal results may not.
In terms of your results: normal volume is greater than 2 mls so, 2.5ml is fine.
Sperm count:45 mill per ml is good, less than 20 mill per ml is low
In terms of motility:at least 50% should be mobile, in your results 35% are mobile so it is slightly below the norm.
Other important aspects would be the shape of the sperm and whether they are in clumps.

IUI would improving chances of conception- it involves placing the sperm directly into the uterus.

I hope this helps

Hi thanks for your question.
Interpretation of you semen analysis is as under;
Quantity 2.5 ml Normal
Liquefaction time 30 minutes Normal
Total sperm count 45 million/ml Normal
Rapid progressive 0% Abnormal ,i
ideally should be 20%
Sluggish motile 35 % Normal
Non progressive 22% Abnormal, should be less
Immotile 43% Abnormal
Should be less than 40%

You need treatment for infertility, since your rapid progressive count is 0%, which is very important for conception.
Hope information I provided will be beneficial to you.

your sperm count is less then normal
to have child sperm count should be normal as well as sperm should have good motility to reach ouvm
in your case your count is less as well as motility is also compromise and almost half of sperm immotile
i advice to consult centre for infertility and evalute your self
there are many other scientific way to have your own child by some procedure
take care
