The color, volume, pH are within normal limit. The liquefaction time is increased. It means the semen takes more time to get a near transparent appearance. In a normal person, it should take less than 1 hour to get liquefied. It may get increased in many situations. But, right now, it cannot be commented on as you have increased WBC in semen. Viscosity is also increased.

Sperm count is normal. We, clinically take 39 million of total sperm count as normal.

Motility of the sperm is very good. Clinically, we consider 40% or more total motility (rapid + progressive motility) as normal.

Percentage of normal sperm is also within normal limit. Clinically, 04% sperm with normal morphology is considered as normal.

Now, WBC. It is increased. Clinically, no WBC should be found in semen of a normal person. So, it’s increased level indicates possibility of bacterial infection. As I have told, sometimes, this increased WBC can lead to increased time required for liquefaction. Sorpt semen analysis after taking a course of antibiotics.

Hope I have answered your queries.. Good day
