Thanks for the query,

Teratospermia is a condition characterized by the presence of sperm with abnormal morphology that affects fertility in males.

Asthenozoospermia is the medical term for reduced sperm motility.

Teratoasthenospermia is the combination of both.

Tratement includes use of antiestrogens,
Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), injecting sperm directly into the egg.

Even with severe teratozoospermia, microscopy can still detect the few sperm cells that have a "normal" morphology, allowing for optimal success rate.

So good luck to you,

Dr Nilofer
