Urologist 's  Response
hello reddy. your semen analysis report shows a lower sperm count and semen volume. probably the motility is also low (low quality semen in the report). this may be due to several causes. I believe the test was done as part of work-up for infertility. you need to be seen by a urologist who will perform an examination and suggest some further tests. remember, the cut-off of 20 million sperms/ml for fertility is not absolute, just a guideline to help in treatment. your partner will also need to be evaluated by a gynecologist. good luck.
