Am I Normal? Guide to Normal Sperm Count

What’s a normal sperm count? Find out where you stand and what it means for your fertility.

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.

  1. can you comment on the below please

    semen volume 1.5
    visc normal
    forward progress >2+
    sperm count >15mil (21)
    rapid mobility >32%
    slow and non progressive >40%
    non-motile 50
    morph >4
    round cell 2

    1. It’s a borderline result. It’s within the “normal” range but lower than I like to see and it may take slightly longer than average to conceive. Are you having trouble?

      (Please post additional thoughts or questions in the forum)

      1. Well had a varicocele surgery 4 years ago. Now it’s back on a grade 1. I was referred by a doctor to check my sperm. above were my results done recently. Havent tried much on having another baby, but I am concerned about my fertility, dont want to try or waste time if I know there is an issue . What do you suggest?

  4. Plz look it my report..em I normal or not??

  7. Hi I was curious if you could interpret this analysis.
    My wife has pcos and we’ve been trying to conceive our second child with fertility drugs for 8 months. We just did IUI for the first time where they did a semen analysis. We were surprised to see results that weren’t amazing especially since we conceived baby 1 on the second month with the help of clomid. Any input would be appreciated:
    – Abstained 2 days
    – Volume: 1 ml
    – Sperm: 30 million
    – PH: 7.6
    – Motility:
    – A 0% fast linear, B 40% slow nonlinear movement, C 6% moving but no direction, D 54% none mobile
    – Morphology:
    – 24% normal, 76% abnormal (62% abnormal head)

    I’m personally most concerned about the motility and the fact that there are none in category A. Do we even have a shot with IUI or is IVF more realistic with these results combined with pcos?

    Thanks so much!

    1. So, there are a lot of factors that could impact motility categorization. I wouldn’t put too much wieght in the 0. It’s concerning but not a show stopper. Overall, this says sub-fertility on your end but I wouldn’t necessarily jump straight to IVF with this.

      Here’s a breakdown:
      Volume: 1 = low
      Sperm 30 million = borderline
      Motility progressive 0 = low
      total motility 46% = normal
      morphology = 24% normal = excellent

      My first thought would be to put in a few months to try to boost numbers and see if you can make some progress. I see a lot of men with numbers in this range make pretty drastic improvements. I’d particularly recommend testicular cooling if you are open to it. I’ve been pretty impressed by the results I’ve seen from it.

      You might want to get checked for a varicocele which also tends to cause results that look similar to this.

      I would also recommend downloading this app and taking the health assessment to see if you have any major risk factors that you could make improvements on.

      At a minimum I would re-test to confirm these numbers (ideally at a different lab) just to confirm. Methodologies vary from lab to lab. No one is “wrong” in how they do it, but semen analysis is pretty nuanced and it is helpful to look at results from different places to get a better sense of where you are at.

      Hope this helps. happy to answer further questions if you have them.

  8. Hi is this normal
    Volume 3.4-1.5
    Concentrate 16.5-15
    30min liquefaction -60
    Toatal motility 81.8-40
    Motility progressive 78.8-32
    Normal forms 15-4
    And test says I am 1 which is most fertile

    1. It’s a bit unusual to see lower count but higher volume and motility. Overall, my impression is that you shouldn’t have trouble conceiving but the result falls in a gray area and likely different experts would give you different opinions.

      I would suggest doing things to be healthy to give yourself the best shot of conceiving each month. Here’s a list of habits that are good for sperm.

  9. Hello Doctor,

    Could you please check my semen Report as follow,

    Duration of abstinence (days) 3

    Volume (ml) 3.7

    pH 8.5

    Greatly increased Viscosity

    Density (x10^6/ml) 37.0
    Total motile count (x10^6) 33.5

    Progressive motility (%) 11.75

    Non progressive motility (%) 12.75

    Immotile (%) 75.5

    Total motile sperm (%) 24.5

    Normal forms (%) 3.75

    Agglutination (%) 0

    Round cells (x10^6/ml) 0

    p.s I have unexplained testicular pain.

    1. Have you had a doctor examine your testicles for the pain?
      In reading this, that stands out as the biggest issue.
      Here’s an article about testicular pain, if you’d like to learn more.

      The semen analysis results look mostly ok. Not as high as I like to see but also not too bad. Are you trying to conceive? If so, how long?

  10. Please reply

    Abstinence – 5 days
    Volume – 3 ml
    Count – 33 million per ml
    Ejaculate – 99 million per ml
    Total motile – 50

  11. hi sara
    plz comment on my semen analysis reprt

    vol 3 ml
    count 180 Mil /ml
    pH 7.5
    MOTILITY 45%

      1. My volum 3.0 ml total count 130 milion motility 80% morphology 90% hi sara answer me i want to b a sperm donor

        1. 130 total or 130M/mL? Different sperm banks have different requirements. Your motility looks good so you might be a candidate.

  12. I would like to say that for every semen analysis test is abcistance necessary
    Does All the tests shown above have abcistance of minimum 3 days
    I have semen volume 1.5 ml abcistance is 2 days
    Is it normal regarding the volume

  13. Doctor please reply

    Volume 4ml
    Liquidation within 40 minutes

  14. Hi, I just got my analysis done. Really need your help as I am scared. Here is the report –

    Volume – 6.2 ml
    Vitality – 40 %
    Concentration – 13.6 M / ml
    Count – 84.3 M per ejac
    Motile sperm – 29.8 M per ejac
    Progressive motile sperm – 19.6 M per ejac
    Morph. normal sperm – 3.4 M per ejac

    Motility – 35%
    Progressive motility – 23.2%
    Non progressive motility – 12%
    Immotile – 65%
    Motile sperm concentration (MSC) – 4.8 M / ml
    Progressive Motile sperm concentration – 3.2 M / ml

    Normal Morphology – 4%
    Functional sperm concentration (FSC) – 0.3 M / ml
    Sperm motility Index – 25

    Does this mean I am infertile?

    1. There is no reason to be afraid.

      Volume is high, sperm count is average. Progressive motile sperm is ok.
      Overall, it’s a little lower than I like to see but fertility is possible, it just might take longer as your chances are a little reduced.

      How is your health?

  15. Hello,

    EPITHELIAL CELLS 3-5 0 – 5 /hpf

    Is there any problem with the report or do i have to do something to rectify it

    1. It is on the low end. Possible to conceive but may take longer than usual. How is your health? Are you having trouble getting pregnant?

  16. Volume 4.3ml

    Concentration 56

    Total count 240.8

    Motility 49%

    Normal morphology 8%

    Total motile 117.9

    Total motile normal 9.4

    Progression (1-slow to 4-fast) 3

    Ph 7.6

    Appearance gray and opaque

      1. We have been trying with no luck for awhile and we just wanted to make sure i was not the problem then we will get her checked but i was worried about the morphology being 8 percent they said it needed to be 15 percent to be healthy is this true

        1. Morphology is hotly debated in the field. It boils down to how strictly the andrologist applies the rules for defining abnormal some methods are stricter than others..Most fertility clinics use a cut-off of 4% normal as the definition for “abnormal” morphology. 15% is about average for fertile men according to WHO. Some studies show that less than 10% normal can impair fertility — but the tricky thing is — it is hard to standardize from technician to technician or clinic to clinic… so many people ignore it all together because it can be hard to tell if the number is meaningful.

          Generally, I am not overly concerned about it but when it is lower than typical (especially in the 8% range), but it does send a flag to explore exposure to heat, toxins, poor diet and other things that can contribute to poor formation of sperm. Often there are things that can be done to improve it. But the measurement itself is pretty subjective and hard to nail down. (which means it can also be hard to observe changes / improvements).

          Does this help clarify?

  19. Hi Dr Sara.

    My wife and I have been trying to conceive for over a year now I am 30 who is epileptic and is taking 800mg of carbamezapine twice a day and she is 25

    My results are as follows

    Mode of Production: Masturbation
    Time Produced: 10:30 AM
    Time Analyzed: 11:00 AM
    Color: Creamy White
    PH: 8.0
    Volume: 9.0 cm3
    Viscosity: Less Viscous
    Liqueficatio: Complete
    Total Count: 42 Million

    Total Motility (70%)
    Fully Active: 30%
    Slightly Active: 40%
    Dead: 30%

    Morphology (Normal: 50% Abnormal:50%)

    Pus cell: 2-3/hpf
    Epithelic cell: 0-1/hpf
    Others: Nil

    Culture: Yielded scanty growth of Staph after 24 hours incubation.

    I am currently taking levoflaxin and supplements.

    My question is, can we conceive?

    1. I am not as well versed on the female side of fertility. I might recommend that she have a discussion with her ob about her medications and medical history to see if there are recommendations for her side.


        DAYS ABST- 2
        VOLUME- 4.0
        MOTILITY RAPID- 10%
        MOTILITY SLOW-50 %
        NONE PROG- 10%
        NORMAL MORPH-35%
        ABNORMAL MORPH-65%

        1. I replied to you elsewhere — but here it is again…

          I’m sorry to hear about your struggles.

          Here’s an explanation of the results:
          Volume: 4 = a little higher than average
          Sperm count: 30 = a little lower than average
          Rapid motility: 10% = a little lower than average
          Total motility: 60% = average
          Normal morphology: 35% = average

          Total progressive motile (volume x count x rapid motility) = 12 million

          This is a little less than optimal. Hard to tell if it is contributing to problems conceiving or not. I would suspect that if these numbers are reflective of the entire time you’ve been trying that he would have had some difficulty conceiving but would have conceived in 2-3 years.

          Questions that come to mind include:
          How is his health? Has it improved or declined over the past 5 years?
          How is your health? Has it improved or declined?
          How often do you typically have sex?
          How is your cycle? Have you had any tests done?

  20. Nicky My semen analysis shows

    Can I get a woman with this result.

      1. Hey Sara, my over all result is good. 150 million total of 3.0 ml of sample with 4 days of gap. The only problem is the rapid linear motion sperms which is only 6% but the total motility is 60%. Rest of the results are within normal range I have been trying for baby since 2 years but i have stayed with my wife for only 1 year. My wife is all good in her lab tests.

        1. is it 1 year continuously or small amounts of time that add up to one year? Have you had sex during her most fertile time? Do you track her cycle so that you both know when she is ovulating?

      2. Hi sara. I want to know about my seman analysis.. Is it normal or abnormal…..
        Quantity.. 5ml
        Appearance.. Thick mucoid
        Sperm count.. 30ml
        Motility.. 60%activly motile
        20%sluggishly motile
        Morphology.. 85%are normal in morphology
        Epithelial cells.. 1-2/HPF
        PUS CELLS.. Occasional
        RBC… NILL

        1. It looks ok
          Quantity: 5 ml = high
          Sperm count: 30M/mL = moderate
          Motility: 60% active = good
          Morphology 85% normal = very good

          Overall, the sperm count looks slightly low, but all the other numbers are great so I think you should be ok. Are you having trouble getting pregnant?

  22. Hi doc, My semen analysis report says,

    Volume -2ml, pH- Alkaline, Fructose test- Positive, sperm count- 78 mill/cumming, morality at time of liq- 55%, sluggish motile- 05%, dead sperms – detected , Pus cells – absent, epithelial cells- absent, RBC- absent, Trichomonas- absent.

    Is it normal doctor?

  23. Please comment on my fertility parameters:

    Abstinence: 4 days
    Liquefaction time: <30 mins
    Color: White Opaque
    Volume: 5 ml
    Reaction: Alkaline
    Sperm Concentration: 45 millions/ml
    Motility: 60%
    Rapidly progressive: 40%
    Moderately progressive: 10%
    Sluggishly progressive: 10%
    Morphology Normal: 70%
    Fructose: Positive
    Pus cells: Numerous
    RBCs: 1-2/hpf

    1. Looks ok. Are you concerned about something in particular? Are you having trouble conceiving?

      1. Thanks for your response. Me and my wife have been trying for about 8 months now. We have sex almost daily during the fertility window.

        It would be helpful if you can clarify the below:

        1) I understand that the average concentration is 60 million/ml and I have 45 million/ml, however since the volume is on the higher end, can I consider this normal?

        2) The report also mentions about occasional epithelial cells. Will they affect fertility?

        3) Also the report I shared was from a test that I took after abstaining for 4 days. Could it be that having sex daily is affecting the chances of conceiving since the numbers could be low in the sperm?

  24. Hello,

    Please let me know if my result is ok?

    Volume- 5.5ml
    Colour- whitish
    Viscosity- normal
    PH- alkaline
    count per ml- 20million
    motile- 45%
    Non motile- 25%
    Sluggish- 30%
    Normal Morphology-65%
    Abnormal shape-35%
    RBC/HPF- 0-1
    WPC/HPF- 0-1
    Epithelial cells/HPF- 0-1

    Thank you

    1. overall it looks ok. Concentration is on the lower side, but volume is on the high end so numbers average out.
      I think you are in a healthy range for conception. Are you having trouble?

  25. Hello doc

  28. Dear sara

    Please check my semen test and reply …
    Valume 5ml
    Sperm count 225 million
    Concentration 65million
    Sperm motility ..
    Non motile 35% poor10 .moderate20.good 20 and excellent 15 %..

    Abnormal form is 25 %…


    1. A+B is total 35% good progressive motile with 225 total count looks preaty healthy

  29. I have an question.

    Is it possible to have agglutination in your sperm and antibodies but still good sperm value?
    i was just wondering that as i didn’t see that on the whole website.

    i have 55 million/ml count
    30% active motile and normal morphology
    25% sluggish/defective
    45% dead/non motile

    I should be ok if looking to TMC in the other article.

    But what about the agglutination and antibodies if that is also present then. My basic question is if the presence of antibodies means automatic that one is infertile?

    1. Apologies for the delay in responding… I’m looking into the research on this. It’s not widely discussed.

    2. So I checked in with a urologist friend of mine to get a more thorough answer. This area is gray. There isn’t a ton of published literature on it and many people don’t measure.
      It doesn’t mean automatic infertility, but if there is a lot of clumping / agglutination, it can prevent sperm from getting to where they need to go. Did the report provide any details?

      1. No, my final report in Netherlands is ready by tomorrow. In foreign country it was just mentioned that agglutination is present and was just wondering and thought to ask a question here.

        I will post further details when report is ready

    1. if you are able, you should visit a urologist who specializes in male reproductive health for a full examination. I would recommend getting a blood test for hormone levels, a phyisical exam and perhaps check for genetic causes of low sperm count. You can also download this app to see if there are any risk factors in your life that could be harming your fertility.

    1. 6 years is a long time to try. I am sorry to hear of this difficulty.
      Your report looks pretty healthy. I don’t see an issue here that would make me think you can not become a father.
      Because you have been trying for so long, you may want to talk to a doctor about some fertility treatments that can help you both improve your chances.

    Thank you madam Sara.

    1. overall, this looks relatively healthy. higher volume is diluting sperm making the concentration a little low but total progressive sperm count is reasonable and you should be able to conceive naturally. Are you having trouble?

      1. Good day Doc Sara,

        Morphology lower threshold : lower threshold for morphologically normal sperm : 4%

        What does it mean?

        Thank you so much doc Sara. .

      1. This is a borderline result in my opinion. You should be able to conceive naturally, but it may take longer than usual.
        If you’d like to boost chances, you might want to have him download this app and see if there are any simple changes he can make to his lifestyle that could improve his sperm count.

          1. Hard to tell how long it will take to conceive. You could get lucky and it could happen soon, or it could take a while.

            All the numbers could be a little better – count and motility would both be very helpful to improve.

            Mostly you do the same things to try to improve count as you do motility.

            Does that help?

        1. Mam please check the reports is it normal.
          Reaction :- Alkaline with PH 8

      I’d recommend that you investigate ways to boost sperm count and motility to improve chances of conception. You can start by downloading this app.

  45. Hi Sara,

    Would like your opinion in my last sperm analysis. I don’t have them right here on me but there are few things what are concerning as per the lab’s comments.

    Thickness: Abnormal
    Liquifaction: complete
    Motility 20%
    Immotile: 70%
    PH: 7.7
    Rounded cells. 1.57

    Do you think there is a sign of infection or some sort of condition? I’m a bit concern about this results. No drugs no alcohol other than 2 beers every Friday.

    1. These do not look particularly concerning, but it is hard to get a sense of fertility without looking at the other numbers.
      Motility is a little lower than usual. but again, without sperm count and volume hard to say how much it is a big deal.

      These don’t readily suggest infection. Round cells would typically be higher during an infection — do you have symptoms that make you concerned that you may have one?

  46. Please help! Here are the SA results, can any of these be improved?:
    Liquefaction – <60
    Viscosity – Severe
    Volume – .2
    pH – 8.5
    Color – White/Gray

    Could you please check my Cytopathology Repor as follow,

    Sperm concentration: 46 million/ml

    Sperm Morphology: 5%

    I would like to ask if high total sperm number has positive effects against lower motility and vitality on fertility.

    Kind regards,

      1. I also would like to ask why do you think my report has less informations then other reports. There is no details about colour, viscosity, percentage of other shapes.. I would be happy to know if I have to ask more detailed semen check from my gp.

        1. They probably measured but didn’t report them. You could ask the lab if they have a breakdown of morphology issues.
          The other things aren’t terribly important.

  50. Hi my husband just got his results yesterday and we are really anxious. He only had 2% “ideal” sperm, and 99% had head defects. His count was good (136 000 000/ml) and motility was 60%. They graded his forward progression a 3, and his activity a 3. His TZI index was 1.25. The doc told him everything looked good… that is not what im reading online and Im starting to feel pretty devastated by it all. Can you give me your opinion on his results?
    Any help would be really appreciated! We are so confused!!
    Thank you in advance!

    1. Morphology is a big area of controversy. Some people feel like it matters a great deal, others pay very little attention to it. Studies on the subject are mixed and difficult to standardize.

      How long have you been trying?
      Does he have any lifestyle / environmental factors that could contribute to poor sperm health? — chemical exposure, heat, alcohol, dietary deficiency, etc?
      Did they break down the type of defects?

    Total Quantity: 2.0 ml
    Colour: Greyish white
    Viscosity: Semi Vicous
    pH: 8.0
    Total Count: 75,000,000 per ml

    Sluggishly Motile: 20 %
    Dead: 10 %
    Inflammatory Cells: No Inflammatory cells seen per high power field.
    Abnormal spermatozoae: 10 % abnormal spermatozoae.

    please confirm us it’s OK…….

  69. hello…sara ma’am

    my semen analysis report
    23 year old
    abstinence-8 days

    quantity-3.7 ml

    sperm count -9.8mil/ ml
    total sperm count- 36.2 mil/ejaculate

    c) non progressive-7%
    d)immotile- 87%

    total motile sperm concentration- 2.14 mil/ejaculate

    morphology-25% normal

    is there any chance that can i reproduce by a natural way?(like if i would have sex for 4 times a day….which will leave around 8 mil motile sperm, which considered as normal)

    thanking you in anticipation…

      1. yes i have checked with urologist,no any other abnormalities have been found

        it is just abnormalities in semen

        but still…is it possible to consieve naturally with this condition if female is totally normal?

        or i would have to go for ivf or icsi?

        i mean what is the prognosis…

        1. What tests did the urologist run?
          Did they check for varicocele?
          Testosterone? FSH? LH?

          Did you download the Trak app or take the risk assessment to see if there are lifestyle factors that could be contributing? there may be things that you can do to increase sperm count

          Would you mind if I moved this thread to the community to make it easier to follow?

    1. Unfortunately, sperm doesn’t work that way. More sex doesn’t equal more sperm.

      2.14 million motile sperm was the total number of sperm your body made in 8 days. If you have sex frequently, you are likely to have lower counts in each ejaculate.

      This number is pretty low but I wouldn’t give up hope. There are a few things you might want to do:

      1. Visit a urologist who is trained in andrology (men’s fertility) and get a full workup that should include physical exam and blood tests.

      2. Take the risk assessment on this site or download this app to fill out the health questionnaire and learn if you have any risks for infertility that you can discuss with your doctor

      3. Review this list of simple things you can do to start improving your fertility.

  70. Mam i use 5 to 10mg sexual pills for sex. i smoke average 5,6 cigrates during office time

    pus cell 0.
    can u advise me to get my wife pregnent

    1. Cigarettes may be impacting your sperm ability to swim. You should stop smoking to improve your sperm.
      If you stop smoking, it might also improve your erection so that you wouldn’t need pills for sex.

      1. thanx madam for your reply .

  72. Hi Sara.
    Can you advise?
    Age 33
    Abs. 2.5 days
    Vol. 4.8ml
    Colour – normal
    Liquified fully
    pH 8.5
    Concentration 10m/ml
    Total motility 77%
    Progressive 68%
    Non-progressive 9%
    Immotile 23%
    Morphology 2% (4%. Normal?)

    1. Sure. Overall, I feel like this is borderline. It could be problematic, it could be ok. Are you having difficulty conceiving.
      Either way, I’d definitely recommend exploring lifestyle changes to try to improve. If you don’t have a ton of lifestyle risk factors, I’d recommend going to a urologist to get checked for a varicocele. It might be worth running hormone tests as well.

      To break it down:

      Semen volume – the amount of fluid – is on the high side
      Sperm concentration – the number of sperm in each mL of semen – is low
      Total sperm count – because there is a lot of fluid, you have a moderate total sperm count. (48 million) I really like to see this about double but it’s not too bad.
      Motility: Total and progressive motility are on the high end. The sperm seem to be pretty healthy and vigorously swimming.
      Total progressively motile sperm count: Total number of vigorously swimming sperm 32 million. (this number should be above 20 million)
      Morphology – the shape of the sperm – poor. It should be above 4% normal and some studies say above 10. But on the other hand, some studies say it doesn’t matter at all or correlate well to conception. It’s a huge debate in the andrology community.

      When I think of it in terms of health, I see a healthy prostate but sometime is impacting testicular function. Often when I see results like this I suspect some simple lifestyle issue – like too much heat, diet, alcohol or something like that. In men that are super healthy and active, my next hunch is varicocele or hormonal imbalance.

      If you want to see a comprehensive list of potential lifestyle factors, you could download this app and fill out the health assessment.

      1. Been trying for ~6 months, but nothing yet.

        Only wrinkle was that, apparently, my viscosity was quite high. (3.0 on a 0.0 to 2.0 reference range.)

        1. Normally, on high viscosity I look to see if the semen is impacting motility. Your motility looks healthy so I don’t feel too concerned about it.

          Viscosity can also change sample to sample, so can sperm count / motility for that matter.

          I might recommend trying another 3 months and getting tested again if nothing happens.

          In the meantime, there is a sperm tracking app and several articles on this site that provide recommendations on optimizing lifestyle to help improve sperm health. If you want to try to improve odds and or show support to your wife / partner there might be a few things you can do to optimize sperm. I’m happy to talk through stuff if you want.

I took ellone emergency pill last year february, have consulted and OBGyn and he said am fine. Have taking tests which shows i have no problem. Pls ma what could be the cause of my no ovulation discharges, can it be the reason why i have been unable to concieve? What can be done ma? Pls help me out.

    1. I do not know what is going on with you. I might recommend going to a new doctor to get a second opinion.

  84. This was my first test done as we were going in for a IUI cycle this month.

    IUI was done yesterday on 7th march 2018 at around 12:30 and this is the sperm analysis for the IUI


    Volume : 3ml
    Viscosity: +
    Pus cell : 3-4
    Debris : —
    Sperm concentration : 83 mill/ml

    Moderate Progressive : 100%
    Slow Sluggish : 00%
    Non-Motile : 00%

    We did IUI with the above sample, is it good enough for conception? we already had 2 IUI failures before, but sample was lower than this and this time it is at a different doctor.

    Im worried about motility, in the earlier report the motility looked good but during the IUI the motility looks bad.. these are the medicines doctor has prescribed.

    — Defrag
    — Progenex
    — COQ-L
    — Maxoza -L

    Apart from this im having these supplements
    — Panax Ginseng – 500 mg one daily
    — Fenugreek Seed – 1020 MG 2 Daily
    — Ashwaganda – 250 MG 2 Daily

    These I started a few days back, my weight is 86 kg and im trying to reduce it, I do frisk walking for around 20-25 mins daily on threadmill. Any suggestions and advice for me? we have been trying from the past 2 years our last conception was an IUI conception but had to be terminated due to cystic hygroma, last time the IUI was a successful conception in 1st cycle. and my motility was just 20%

    1. The post-wash had moderate progressive so hope is not lost. They were swimming, they just weren’t going really fast. Conception is possible with sluggish swimmers 🙂

      If IUI has worked in the past, that’s a good sign that it can work in the future and that you don’t have issues that require more serious interventions.

      In terms of suggestions for you, you might want to download this app — it allows you to enter all your semen analysis results and track them over time to see if your health improvements are having a strong impact on your sperm. It also has a detailed questionnaire that can provide recommendations for you to improve your sperm count.

      I’m working to launch a new community on this site to help people connect with other people who are going through similar things. Would you mind if I re-post this there?

      1. Thank you for your reply, yes please repost it to your community and send me a link to the post so I can followup there.

        Thank you once again. Do you think those medicines are good? and what about those herbal supplements?

    1. Your sperm count is a borderline result. You should be able to conceive but it might take longer than usual.

      You might want to take this quick health assessment to see if there are health habits that you can improve to try to improve your sperm so you can conceive more quickly.

      If you don’t conceive in 3 more months, I would recommend that you test again and see if the results have changed.

  86. This is absolutely terrible, I feel like a submale. Only 0.8 million/mL, only 2% are normal, 70% are immobile. Trying to conceive for 5 years. Already tired of so many spermograms… However, I have bilateral varicocele and Low-T which are contributing factors. Screwed up by nature.

    1. Sorry to hear of your trouble. The varicocele could be causing low T and issues with sperm. Have you talked to the doctor about potentially correcting it? Did they measure FSH and LH or other hormone levels?

      You might also try testicular cooling to see if that helps things.

      I’m just starting a new community on this site to help guys connect and find support while going through these kinds of issues. Maybe you’d be interested in posting there:

    Does it look good and am I normal? Will this be enough to get my wife pregnant? Sincerely yours, THL

    1. Looks pretty healthy.

      Are you able to meet with her on a regular basis? has she been to the doctor for an evaluation?

      1. Hi! Thanks for a quick reply! We’ve been together on a regular basis for about 10-11 months. She’s been to the OBGYN and they are thinking about doing a diagnostic laparoscopy mainly to exclude endometriosis. I took the semen analysis just to be sure.

        So my sample would be enough/suffice regarding fertilization (from a male’s point of view?)

        Sincerely yours

        1. I would think so. Total motile is near (or slightly above) average. Semen looks healthy.

          If you want to be sure (and it doesn’t cost too much), you might repeat the test. I have seen guys with wildly different results…(not commonly but it does happen)

          I would continue to rule out on the female side but if you cannot isolate an issue, a second analysis may provide useful info.

          Sorry this stuff is frustrating. If you have any other questions or need a place to vent… I’m here.

          1. Thank you for the quick reply and care :). This will be my last question 🙂 – when it comes to my results, 38 mill/mL (sperm concentration). Is this on the low side? Or do you look at the total picture when it comes to evaluating the analysis?

            Your site is super and you do a fantastic job!

            Sincerely yours

          2. Feel free to ask questions any time. Its really my favorite part of the day.

            So… semen analysis is tricky. I’ll try to break it down a little.

            To understand how semen quality impacts fertility, researchers do large population studies and look at how long it takes to conceive vs all the things measured on a semen analysis to see if any factors are more likely to influence ability to conceive.

            There is general agreement that a sperm cell has to swim to the egg and so, doctors and andrologists calculate a value called total motile sperm count. They multiply the amount of semen (mL) X the sperm concentration M/mL X % motile (or in some cases progressively motile) = total motile sperm count. In your case that would be 162 million motile or 91 million progressively motile. Guidelines around progressive motile sperm generally want to see above 20 million motile.

            The one caveat is that there have been a number of large scale studies that show that sperm concentration alone can be tied to time to conception regardless of other parameters. In those studies, any number below 40 or 55 million have been shown to increase time to conception. Generally, the lower the number, the longer it takes to conceive. Again, you are a bit of an outlier. Normal semen volume is between 2-3 mL so most people with a sperm concentration of 40 M/mL have a total sperm count of like 100 plus or minus.

            From my experience, people with high semen volumes often have lower concentration because the higher amount of liquid dilutes the sperm. I haven’t to date seen any studies to look at how this specifically impacts conception. It is generally accepted by the medical community that it doesn’t but researchers like to push through assumptions and get proof. Unfortunately, sperm isn’t terribly well researched.

            Hope that helps.

            Also… can I move this conversation to a new forum that I am launching? I am working to build a better place for people to share experiences and hopefully provide more emotional support for guys going through this as well as a place for us all to learn more about sperm and men’s reproductive health more generally.

  98. mam help me what can i do

    semen analysis

    1. 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.

    2. Hi ma’m please can you check mine

      1. 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.

        1. 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.

  100. What says the following semen analysis report.

    Semen analysis.

    What does this report suggest. Please help.

      1. Yes Mam,
        After a year of unprotected intercourse still now my wife not have pregnant. 2 months ago she had missed period but when we check urine for pregnancy result came negative. We checked 3 times but always result came negative. Now 7 days going on of her last period.

        What would be the problem. Kindly suggest me.

          1. Thanks ma’am for reply.

            She had gone to the doctor for pregnancy test when the result came negative, doctor advice a medicine for her period and semen test for me. She took the medicine and her period came. We have not do any other test.

            Kindly suggest.

          2. Does she have trouble with her period. The medication may help you conceive…how long has she been taking it?

  101. Thanks ma’am. I have been worried for a while now. He was place on fertimax for a month. Thanks soooo much. God bless you

  103. Good day m’aam. Pls help me to understand this results. 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.

    1. 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.

  104. Dear Dr.

    Please check my report and syggest….

    Morphology of the sperms : no abnormal form seen.

    Plse suggest….

  105. 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.

    1. 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?

  106. Hi,
    here is my semen Analysis report, please let me know is this fine ?

    and also let me know the meaning of Asthenoteratozoospermia because it is written at the end on the comments of my report? Me and my wife wants to have baby now.. Kindly guide me.


    1. 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…

  107. Hello miss,
    Please let me know my regarding my semen report, is that OK? One doc says it’s OK while another saying its not OK. 2 times my wife suffered from miscarriage in a year
    Sperm count 50 millions/ml
    Volume 2.0
    Colour G/white
    Consistency viscous
    Ph 8.0
    Liquification time 20 min
    Active 40
    Sluggish 50
    Non motile 10
    Normal 85
    Abnormal 15
    WBC 1-2

    1. 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.

      1. Yes
        There is an ovarian cyst, is that becoming a problem?
        Do I need to improve my Sperm count by any tablet or just follow things available on this site?
        Thanks for prompt response.

    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.

        That was with three days without sex
        Please help me understand this me and wife want a baby together thank you.

        1. This looks pretty healthy.
          Sometimes it can take 6 or even 12 months to get pregnant even if you are very fertile
          It’s a good idea to have sex 3-4 times a week throughout the cycle to make sure that you have sex during the most fertile time.

          1. There isn’t a ton a research on it. From a limited review, there have been studies that suggest HPV can impact sperm morphology or lead to miscarriage. However, data seems to be limited an inconclusive. In your case, the numbers look pretty solid. If you have a miscarriage or don’t conceive by 9 months of trying, it might be a good idea to re-test or talk to a doctor about the issues.

    1. This looks pretty good. High levels of abnormal sperm can be concerning but it’s actually pretty normal for most sperm to be abnormal. Overall, this report looks pretty healthy to me.

    1. Yes, it is possible to increase sperm count. Here is an app that can help you figure out exactly what you can do that would help the most.
      This article lists the most common things that men can do to try to boost sperm count.

      1. 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 ?

  144. 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 ?

    1. 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).

  145. Hey,

    This is Ram from India, 31 yrs old male.

    RBC – NIL
    PLUS CELLS – 3-5/H.P.F



  146. 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!

    1. 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.

  147. 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

    1. 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…

  149. Dear Sir,
    This is sathish kumar. last month i went for a seman analysis test. please check my report whether its normal or not.

    1. This is on the low side of normal. You should be able to conceive but it may take a few extra months. You can download a sperm tracking app to see areas to improve your lifestyle to boost your sperm if you would like to improve

      1. Thank you. Sara. We have been trying for the last 2 years. Still nothing happened. I’ve done some research on this and used the app you recommended by input my daily behavior and habit to evaluate my self. It looks like i am over weighted based on the result determined by the app. My Height is 6 ‘0, weights 215 lb. How many lbs do you think I should reduce. Thank you again for answering this.

  151. Hai my sperm count details are ..sperm count 99 million…total volume 1.9 ml.abstince 3.5 days..60 motile 30 dead… liquefaction time 1 hour 15 minutes…Any problem with my liquefaction time? i read from internet that liquefaction time must be less than 30 minutes…Can i check liquefaction time from my home? any method for assessing myself..

    1. Your motility looks good so I don’t think liquifaction is having a big impact on fertility. It’s not too much longer than normal. I usually am not concerned unless it is over 3hrs

  156. Trying to conceive in the past 6 months with no success. My wife had a miscarriage in late November last year after conceiving in September. Below is my semen report for your candid observation and advise.

    Duration of Abstinence: 04 Days
    Time produced: 9:36am
    Time received: 9:45am
    Time examined: 10:25am
    Volume: 3.0ml
    Viscosity: Viscid
    Appearance: Creamy fluid
    PH: 8.0
    Microscopic examination
    Total sperm count: 32 millions/ml
    Pus cell: 5-8/hpf
    RBC: Nil
    Ephethelial cell: +ve
    ▪Active 40%
    ▪Sluggish 10%
    ▪Dead 50%
    ▪Normal 70%
    ▪Abnormal 30%

    Kindly advised on my test result.

    1. 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.

  160. Hello sir. one year ago my semen analysis report was not too hood such as rapid movement of sperms was ony 8 % and 45% were immotie. Then I used different medicines but my wife didn’t get pragnent. Now recenty I have used some medicens for 6 weeks almost.

  161. Semen Report

    duration of abstinence : 03 days
    volume: 4.0 ml
    semen ph: 8.5
    sperm conc: 3.9 millions/ml
    motility: 34 %

    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.


    1. 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…

    Trying to conceive since 3 years but not success. Could you suggest me please????

    1. 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?

      1. 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?

        1. 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?

          Viscosity- normal
          Color- pale yellow
          Motility- 67%
