Sperm Motility

Sperm motility is known as the movement of the sperm towards the egg in the female reproductive organ. Healthy sperm motility is necessary for conception. Poor sperm motility is a condition where the sperm is unable to swim or move, and it is known as asthenospermia. Men having a total of 19 million motile sperm are considered normal, and those with less than 6 million are known to have poor sperm motility.
