Semen Analysis

An important test that helps to evaluate male fertility is called semen analysis. During the semen analysis test, the collection of semen samples is done and examined under a microscope to monitor various parameters such as sperm count, motility of sperm, morphology or shape of sperm, and volume. The result of semen analysis helps to identify the exact cause of male infertility then doctors will suggest treatment options accordingly.

When to go for the Semen Analysis Test?

Semen analysis is usually recommended by specialists to those couples who have been trying to conceive for more than one year without success. When it is found out that the couple is medically infertile then also semen analysis is done. When the couple is undergoing an IVF process then semen analysis test for males comes in the part of a fertility evaluation. It is also used to monitor the effectiveness of vasectomy procedures.

How Semen Analysis Test Performed?

The semen sample is collected by the male while ejaculating in a small sterile container. Any lubricants or chemicals should be avoided because it can affect the sperm motility. It is important that semen testing should be done within 30-60 minutes of collection to ensure accurate results. There are several parameters on which semen sample is evaluated:
● The volume of semen produced in a single ejaculation.
● The concentration or number of sperm available in each milliliter of semen. The normal sperm count on average is 15 million/ml.
● The morphology of sperm such as size, structure, and shape.
● The quality and movement of the sperm.

How to Understanding Normal Vs. Abnormal Semen Analysis Report?

The result of only sperm count is not enough to analyze the semen because sperm counts vary from person to person. Several underlying factors are present that decide the sperm counts in a male such as age, weight, lifestyle, and overall health. For example – A 60+ aged man will have a low sperm count whereas a man whose age is in between 20-30 years will have either a normal or high sperm count. According to WHO, the normal sperm count is in between 15-200 million sperm per milliliter.

● The low sperm count condition is called oligospermia whereas the zero sperm count condition is known as azoospermia.

What is the Treatment for Sperm Related Problems?

If the issue is related to low sperm count or sperm motility then it can be treated by some oral medications suggested by the doctors. However, if the sperm count is zero i.e., azoospermia condition then minor surgical procedure is required like TESA, microtese, and PESA.


As per the World Health Organization (WHO), a normal report for semen analysis would
look something like this:

 WHO Reference Range
Total Sperm Count in Ejaculate39 – 928 Million
Volume of Ejaculate1.5 – 7.6 mL
Sperm Concentration15 – 259 Million per mL
Total motility (progressive and non-progressive)40 – 81%
Progressive motility32 – 75%
Sperm morphology4 – 48%



The rate of pregnancy is subjective to a number of factors that not only includes the count of sperm but their motility, their health, and their morphology as well. For healthy sperm, a lady can get pregnant with as less as 20 million sperm per mL.

It means that none of the sperm in the ejaculate is mobile or has the ability to move because of several factors.

Lazy sperm is the condition of low sperm motility, where the sperm “give up” swimming to the egg mid-way only, causing fewer chances of getting pregnant. The main causes of having lazy sperm can be

  • Infection
  • Testicular Cancer
  • Testicular Surgery
  • Congenital issues
  • Undescended testicles
  • Injury
  • Alcohol or drug abuse
  • Varicocele
