Hello Guhram Jamali,

Thanks for your query,

Asthenozoospermia refers to reduced sperm motility.
Teratozoospermia refers to presence of sperm with abnormal morphology .
Asthenoteratozoospermia is the combination of two.

It is one of the major causes of infertility or reduced fertility in men.

Treatment would be:
1. Antiestrogens which shown to be effective in the treatment of teratospermia.
2 ICSI.( injecting sperm directly into the egg)

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

So please do not panic,
Avoid alcohol and smoking,
Have healthy diet with plenty of fruits.
Exercise moderately.

wish you good luck,
Dr Nilofer
