Hi, welcome to healthcare magic

It is important to remember that the characterisitics reviewed by semen analysis only look at some of the factors in semen quality, 30% of men with normal analysis may have abnormal sperm function and those with abnormal sperm may father children.

The normal results of a sperm analysis is ph normal range is 7.2 to 7.8 according to the WHO. A higher level may occur in some instances of infection which can usually be treated.

Normal count is at least 20 million per ml so 16 mill/ml is slightly below this
At least 50% should be mobile- 40% of yours were rapidly moving and 20% sluggish but moving
35% abnormal forms is good, it implies that 85% were normal which is a good figure.
Presence of pus cells may indicate an infection.

I hope this information helps

Hi, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das
First of all, the color, pH are normal. The sperm count per ml is lower than normal ( normal - >20 million /ml as per WHO 1999). Liquefaction time is ok.Motility is also very good (rapidly progressive and sluggish are total >50%). But there is increased number of abnormal sperm which may cause ineffectivity.Others are within normal limit.
So, overall, there is mildly lower sperm count and abnormal forms. I suggest you to do a special study of morphology of sperm.
