Hi MicroMaxNeo,
Do not worry about your semen analysis report, as your report suggest infection, for which you have to take the required course of antibiotics from your treating doctor. A repeat semen analysis after medication will be usually normal.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries.
free to ask if you have any additional queries.
wish you good health.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic
Report is not normal. Motility of sperm should be >50% out of which >25% should be rapidly progressive ( WHO criteria ). Volume is also low that be due to lack of abstinence of less than 3 days before semen analysis. Presence of pus cells suggests infection for which you may require course of antibiotic. I would recommend to repeat semen analysis after 15 days after abstinence of 3-7 days. Consult an andrologist/Urologist for further management. Take care

My husband had his sperm tested by his primary care, the results state : while you apparently demonstrate normal sperm counts and motility you apparently have abnormalities in the viscosity (thickness) of the semen itself. What does this mean for fertility? We have been trying for over a year.

At 2009 my wife go for a normal check-up bec she is Pregnacy for 34week+ and the doctor say the baby was very health but not more than 3days the baby stillborn so we ask the doctor why suddenly the Baby will pass away when he say it was health .. So while waiting for the Baby report,my wife go for a check for herself and everything is good and we meet the doctor and ask again why the baby suddenly pass away since there have the report already and he say dun know WHY cos nothing wrong at all so He tell us that we are unlucky that the answer he give.

So after trying for about 2years my wife pregnacy again so we are very happy but the Baby again stillborn at about 3month+ and all the Hope have gone again.. So both of us do a full body check, end up the doctor find out my sperm count less. So now i eveyday eat Zinc, multi-Vitamin and Anlene milk jus to hope that i can improve my sperm count cos we really hope to have a baby. I know i make a big misstake of drinking too much coke, mostly i drink 1.5L of coke everyday. Than this few day i read the news and find out that coke kill sperm so i search online to find out more and i get the answer, that why i have low sperm count if i'm not wrong and my sperm is the problem for the pregnancy.

I now started to smoking less and drink less coke so i really hope that someone out there can help me to solve this problem.. What is the most important stuff i should eat or do to improve the sperm and massage which part of the body get help too?

So i and my wife can get pregnacy again with nothing go wrong cos we cannot take it anymore... We really hope to have a small family after we get marry for 4years. I really hope my sperm count can get improve, Thank to everyone that can help me solve the problem and hope that the Doctor can find a way to stop parents getting stillborn baby cos it a very sad thing. Until now i and my wife still cannot forget what happen in 2009... All the best to all the parents,God bless u all and will look after all of u
