Hello doctor,

I am a 30 year old married man. I had cryptorchidism, and so had removal of testes in childhood. Now I am married. And recently I had gone for semen analysis, which shows asthenoteratozoospermia, the sperm count of 20 million and few pus cells. Will I be able to become a father or should I go for adoption.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

If both the testes were removed or a single one? Your sperm count is normal it should be more than 15 million, you have an infection, so do blood sugar PP and semen culture and sensitivity test. What is motility percentage? Meanwhile keep away from heat, chemical, smoking zones. Avoid laptop on lap. Wear loose undergarments and keep your testes cooled by pressing them with a wet towel for 5 to 10 minutes daily. Eat green vegetables and tomatoes.

Take Multivitamin, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Folic acid tablets daily for three months. You can become a father if motility is more than 40 % otherwise with IUI, in the present scenario. There is no need for adoption, because if both the testes are removed, then you should not have sperm in semen.

Thank you doctor,

Only one testis is removed. One is intact, and that is the reason why I underwent tests and all. My motility percentage is 36. I have attached the semen analysis.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Then your situation is not hopeless, and there is a fair chance of pregnancy. Motile sperm count is 7.2 million (attachment removed to protect patient identity) it should be more than 6.0 million. Do the tests suggested above.

Thank you doctor,

Thank you so much doctor.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

In the report sperm count is 32, not 20 as mentioned by you, so your motile sperm count is still higher at 11.5.
