Am I Normal? Guide to Normal Sperm Count

It’s hard to define “normal”, especially when it comes to your body. But after getting a semen analysis,the question of what’s normal can seem like a constant companion. So where do your results fall? Do you have a normal sperm count?

“Average” vs “Normal”

Doctors try to avoid the phrase “normal” when they can. That’s because there’s really no such thing as a normal body. Average is frequently used instead, especially in academic studies. With your sperm count, things are further complicated by the sheer range of what average is, and how normal is defined.

Do you consider normal to be the mathematical average of a large group of men? Or do you consider normal to be the number at which successful pregnancies start becoming likely?

The Low End

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines “the lower range of normal” as 10-15 million per milliliter. While it only takes one sperm to fertilize an egg, a higher amount of sperm in an ejaculate, the higher the odds that one of your swimmers will go for the gold and actually fertilize an egg. The range of 10-15 million/ml, while not technically subfertile, is the lowest end of normal.

So why is your count low? Check out our detailed article on low sperm count for more detailed information about causes, treatment options and things you can do to improve.

Maybe Baby

A sperm count ranging between 15 million and 60 million is the low-average range of sperm count, meaning that while your count isn’t necessarily “low”, it is still slightly below average. In general, if sperm count is in this range, but all other semen parameters are average or above (if the sperm that you do have are generally healthy), this count shouldn’t cause problems with conceiving although several studies have shown that monthly chances of conception increase with sperm count up to around 40-50 million. If you are in the below average range, you may want to explore some of our tips for boosting sperm count. Chances are cutting back on alcohol, eating a little better or dropping a few pounds could do wonders for your swim team.

Average Joe

A count ranging between 60-80 million is considered to be the average range for men aged 18-35. In a study of 4867 Danish men aged 20-45, the average sperm count was 60 million/ml. This study has been pretty groundbreaking in its findings, and the results from it have been used to define the new “normal” for men. The WHO conducted a different study of around 2,000 recent fathers which defines the 50 percentile (basically the exact middle of the range) as 73 million/ml.

Top of the Class

The top 25% of the male population had a sperm count between 80 million/ml and 200 million/ml. Congratulations, you just made the sperm count honor roll.

Super Swimmers

A count above 200 million indicates an above average count. This is awesome news for your fertility, since higher sperm counts have been linked with more successful conception.

Other Factors

Regardless of your number, your sperm isn’t the only factor in your fertility. A low sperm count could have very little impact if the overall sperm quality is exceptional, and a high count could mean very little without motility and morphology to help it along.

What Now?

Do you have a low sperm count? We’ve got good news. Sperm counts change from day to day and there are lifestyle factors that can help boost you count. For more info, check out our tips on increasing your sperm count.

  3. […] After collecting a semen sample at a clinic, most men do not follow their sample through analysis. This process is usually done behind closed doors, and results are reported a few days later. Although technology has certainly advanced in every regard, the way in which a semen sample is analyzed in a clinic or lab is, for the most part, the same thing Van Leeuwenhoek did in 1677: microscopy. Essentially, technicians take a small portion of the sample you produced to look at under a scope and measure unique parameters such as morphology, motility, and concentration. […]

      This is in the normal range but it is a little lower than ideal. 3 years is a long time to be trying so I think there might be something else going on as well. It wouldn’t hurt to try to take steps to improve your sperm count. Here’s a cool app to track your sperm test results and figure out if there are things you can do to improve.

      Has your wife / partner been evaluated? Are her cycles normal?

      • CCC April 24, 2017 at 3:13 am - Reply

        Thank you so much for your response and suggestion, The cycles are normal of my partner and some doctors suggested that my sperm is lower than normal so I’ve taken some medicine and other natural exercise/diet too & usually we tried conceive between 10th to 18th days of cycle but not success. So, what we do?

        • Sara SDx
          Sara SDx April 24, 2017 at 7:40 pm - Reply

          Keep up the diet and exercise changes. Those should help improve your chances. You might want to test again in a few months to see if there are improvements.

          You should try to have sex before the fertile days as well. For men, it is best if they are able to have sex every 2 – 7 days to keep sperm moving through the system. If you cannot have sex that often, then at a minimum you will want to try to have more frequent sex at the beginning of the cycle. Then every other day during from 10 – 18. It can get stressful to think so much about timing sex so as much as you can try to focus on enjoying it and not allowing yourself to feel too much stress about timing.

          Is that helpful?

    duration of abstinence : 03 days

    sperm conc: 3.9 millions/ml

    Please guide me do you see the above report is abnormal? my age is 33 …. I have taken Paternia XT and MHR BIO tablets for 3 months from Dec, Jan and Feb and my count was 30 millions when tested in March…but today we tested again to make sure if my count and motility are good enough for IUI… but it was disappointing results and we have cancelled IUI..

    Please suggest me can I take Paternia XT and MHR BIO for another 3months. I have already taken these table for 6 months…not sure if I can take for another 3months and there wont be any side affects in the future…
    Next cycle we can go for IUI and can be successful….we are in completely in shocking state…as IUI was supposed to be on Monday 24/04/17 and now its been cancelled…
    Appreciate your quick response madam.

      That was a big drop. Did you have semen analysis in Dec, Jan or Feb? If so, what were the numbers?
      Did anything else change recently?

      Overall, I think the 3.9 million is on the borderline but probably could be ok for IUI. Generally the guidelines I’ve seen are total motile around 5 million. (But it also depends on what the motility looks like, the results above don’t show if you have any strong swimmers or not)

      I don’t know the tablets that you are on specifically. I have looked them up and they look to be helpful in getting nutrients that are helpful for sperm into the body but if that is the only thing you’ve done differently maybe they are not having a good effect on you.

      You could try downloading this app and entering all your information. It might give you some good insights.

      I’m happy to answer more questions if I can…

      This amount looks possible to conceive but it is lower than optimal. I would recommend taking steps to improve your health which in turn can improve both your fertility, reduce your risk of miscarriage and help the future health of baby. I’d particularly try to make sure you eat a healthy diet. I might even recommend a prenatal vitamin to makes sure you are getting enough key nutrients.

    You might be very surprised to learn that my PC just said well we are not experts but here is your report. When I compare what I was provided with the others listed on here the my numbers seem very confusing
    Volume 1.3
    pH 7.5
    Concentration 99
    Motility 75
    Progression 3+
    Total Count 128.7
    Total Motile Count 96.52
    Normal Morphology 3

      your numbers are a little different. Good count and motility, lower volume and morphology.

      How long have you been trying? It is hard to tell if these factors are impacting your fertility. My gut instinct would be that total motile is a pretty healthy number that I wouldn’t be overly concerned about morph issues. That said, it may be worth looking into your lifestyle you see if there are any easy corrections that could help improve sperm health. Diet, exercise, weight, alcohol, toxins and heat are my first usual suspects.

      Volume (and to a lesser extent DNA replication) tends to go down with age, so if you are older that could be part of the story.

      Varicocele might also be contributing… if you have a really healthy lifestyle, and you’ve been trying for a while, it might be worth full eval by male fertility specialist (happy to make a referral if you need one or provide feedback on doc you find).

      If you’ve been trying for less than a year, i might not be too concerned. As I said before total motile is a good number so you may not have too much trouble. But there’s enough here that if you’ve been trying for a while it might be worth at least a little more investigation into what’s going on.

      Hope that’s helpful…

    Hi Sara,

    What do you think of these results? Is this good enough to conceive naturally? I was abstinent for 3.5 days, not sure if that was too long to wait for the test?

    Semen Volume: 2.2 mls
    Sperm Count (conc.): 17.5 million/ml
    Total Sperm Count: 38.5 million
    Total Percent Motility: 37%
    Percent Rapid Progressive Motility: 60%
    Motile Sperm Count (conc.): 6.5 million/ml
    Total Motile Sperm: 14 million
    Round Cells: 1 million/ml

    Thanks so much!

      This is a borderline result. You should be able to conceive but it may take a while. Typically, I see semen analysis results like this in guys who either have a varicocele or have something in thier lifestyle contributing. You might want to take the quiz on this site to see what your risk factors might be and take steps to get healthier to boost your numbers a little.

    Hello I am Prasad from India.
    We are trying for a baby from past 4 months. Recently I did a seminal analysis and the report is as below:
    Sperm count : 198 million/ml
    volume :2.1 ml
    ph :7.8
    motility : 68%
    viability : 76%
    Morphology : 4%
    Also, I have been taking the tblet Profertile from past 4 months. Should I change the tablet ?
    Please let me know how is this report ?

      Your count and motility look excellent. The morphology is lower than it should be but I’m not too concerned about it. You may want to download this app to see if there are any health factors that could be increasing your risk of having morphology problems (heat exposure, alcohol, pollution, etc).

      The WHO cut off is 4% normal. Some studies recommend having at least 10% normal.

        Thank you very much for the reply.
        Is it still possible to conceive naturally with 4% morphology, considering the count is 198 million/ml, motility : 68% and viability : 76%.
        Or is it very less chance ?

    Im very confused with my results. My semen analysis:
    Volume: 2.3 ml
    Total count: 409.4 millions/ml
    Total motile count: 138 millions/ml
    Grade A: 5%
    Grade B: 25%

    Morphology: 6%
    PH: 7.5
    Liquefaction time: More than 30 minutes.
    My wife has prolactin at 43 higher than normal.
    Doctor prescribed medicine mainly nutrients for both of us. She told if after 4-5 months no conception we should go for IUI. We have been ttc for last 5 months. Im 31 and wife is 29. We want to conceive naturally. What do you think about the numbers? Is it possible to conceive naturally? I think the sperm count is abnormally high and when i pushed the doctor for the reason she did not provide any convincing answer. Looking forward to your reply. Thanks in advance.

      Your total sperm count is almost 300 million.
      About 100 million of them are swimming.

      I would generally say this is a pretty healthy semen analysis. Has your wife / partner been to the doctor?

      It’s a borderline result. You can definitely conceive (as your wife has already done) but taking steps to get healthier could improve your sperm, your sperm health and hopefully improve chances that your wife will get pregnant and stay pregnant.

      Has a doctor investigated her ability to stay pregnant? Some women have issues in uterus that make it hard for them to stay pregnant.

      Let me know if you have any more questions. I’m happy to try to help.

      your sperm count is reasonable but many of the sperm aren’t too healthy. The normal morphology is low and motility is somewhat impacted…. How long have you been trying to conceive? Generally, there should be plenty of good sperm that I would anticipate that you should be able to conceive but if you are having trouble. sperm may be contributing…

    Hello, my ex-wife and I were married 17 years and were unable to conceive. I am 45 years old and my girlfriend all of a sudden is pregnant. I went to get a sperm count test to see if it is possible for me to become a father. Here are the results:

    Sperm count revealed a concentration of 2.35 million sperm per milliliter
    Concentration of motile sperm was .74965 million sperm per milliliter
    Motility of 31.9%
    Morphological Assessment indicated 2% normal, 97% head defects, 1% tail defects

    I hope this is enough info to provide me with answers to if my sperm can actually penetrate through an egg. I am also concerned about my ex-wife. I look forward to a response, thank you.

      Is is possible. Odds are low but possible.
      Based on these numbers, I would normally recommend a full evaluation by a urologist to understand what is going on and would say that natural conception is unlikely. But I wouldn’t say impossible.

      Generally the cut-off for male contraceptive studies is less than 1 million. And lower is better (for contraception)
      Conversely, higher is better for conception and I like to see sperm counts above 55 million to optimize chances of conceiving.

      Does that help?

My guy did semen analysis and this is his result; abs 5 days, color creamy, volume 2ml, 116.8 million spermatozoid, his age is 33, normal motility 30%, anomal motility 20% and immotile is 50%. The vitality is 80%, agglutination is rare, the morphology is 10% normal and 90% abnormal. The head tapered is 20%, irregularities 5%, poorly formed acrosome 20%, on the flagellum; curl is 25% and double is 5%. The anomalies index is 1.00. And the conclusion on the results is Astheno teratozoospermia. Pls interpret the results and tell me if we can have a baby. We have been trying for 6 months now.

      I’m surprised at the results as asteno teratozoospermia… overall this looks pretty healthy to me. I would suspect that you would be able to conceive with results like these. The morphology is the only number that is on the lower side but even that is pretty well above the cut-off and the head deformations are minimal.

      I would recommend that you look into ways to improve both of your health as you try to conceive. But partners can benefit from a diet that is full of fruits and vegetables, getting enough sleep, regular exercise, etc. Here is a health assessment to see if he has any lifestyle factors that could impact his sperm.

        Just tried for last 4 months out of which we could calculate the correct ovulation period of my wife only once. This is because my wife’s periods were getting delayed every month & now it’s 42 days. So whenever I calculated the ovulation period taking into account the previous cycle it turned out to be wrong. Only last month doctor told us correct time but no success. Doctor also me to get my semen analysis which I posted. Doctor said it is fine but would like to seek your advice too. Married for last 10 months, been in contact for last 4 months.

          Even with very healthy semen it can take 6 or even 12 months to get pregnant.

          Irregular or long periods can make this even more difficult. I had this issue myself. I would recommend trying to be together 3-4 times a week to make sure that you don’t miss the fertile time.

          I would also recommend that both you and your wife try to do extra things to improve your health. — eat more vegetables, exercise regularly, make sure you both have a healthy weight, avoid chemicals or stress. I can send you a complete list of things that are good to do when trying to get pregnant if you’d like.

      The sperm count is a little on the low side. You might want to download this app to see if there is anything you can do to improve and it would be a good idea to schedule an appointment with a urologist for a full exam to figure out what is causing this.
