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.

My husband has been on Treatment to raise his T levels. First he used Testim gel for several months, now he is using injections, which he gives himself at home. My concern is we would like to conceive, and we know these treatments can lower sperm count. He is reluctant to do a Semen analysis, but I think it may be the only way to know if conception is possible. The Urologist he is using has suggested it, and also wants him to start HCG which can raise his sperm count. All very confusing, can you enlighten me?
