Hello doctor,

I recently went through sperm analysis and noticed issues with my sperm motility and morphology. My sperm viability is 54 % (normal 58 %), motility score is 61 out of 150, normal oval heads is 2 % (normal 4 %), higher number of not moving sperm is noticed with (grade 0 = 59 %), in-place sperm score is 23 %, slow-moving sperm 32 %, rapid in straight line is 6 % and high-speed sperm moving in straight line is 0 %. Kindly advise how I can get my sperm quality into normal state and improve my sperm quality. Please suggest if there is any medication available that I can start using it or helpful ways to improve my sperm quality. I do not smoke at all, and I am social drinker (like a beer once in a month or two to three months).

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I went through your report. As you see, the count is normal. Motility and vitality are low. The main morphological problem is amorphous sperms. This would mean a good number of sperm are being produced, by the testis, but on the way to the penis, which takes about two to three months, the sperms are being damaged. You need to evaluate for,

1. Are you diabetic?

2. Any other medical disorders?

3. Any exposure to compounds like petroleum products, cigarette smoke, paint, pesticides, etc.?

4. Any history of renal stones. This could be a source of infections.

5. You will need a month course of Doxycycline for 15 days, later Levofloxacin.

Repeat semen analysis after a month. I think you will have great results. I hope I have clarified your query, do write back if any more questions and for your feedback.
