Found DH sperm and DNA fragmentation result

Specimen Description
Volume 3.8
Ph 7.7
Appearance White
Liquefaction Complete
Consistency Normal
Dilution 3.00
Total Sperm Counted 1047
Motile Sperm Counted 222

Sperm Concentration

Total Sperm Concn 119.80
Motile Sperm Concn 25

Kinetic Analysis
Motility 21.2 L >40
Number of Motile Sperm 76.2
Straight Line Speed 44
Curvilinear Velocity 69
Mean Linearity 62
Lateral Head Disp 3.1



Morphology/Viability
Normal 15 L > 30
Polymorphs 0
Viability 75

Interpretation
DNA Integrity Assay 27.13
Interpretation : 25-30% Fair Fertility Potential


The two things that are written in "Flag" area are Motility (under Kinetic Analysis) L means low and Normal (under Morphology/ Viabililty) 15 L should be above >30.

How is it? I have another fragmentation test soon. I couldn't find this result and couldn't tell what the result was exactly, do sperm fragmentation change? I worry about it? Does motility and morphology/ viability matter if you are doing icsi? I know I would have liked to see good or excellent but I am too scare ....

Thanks for helping me out with this result.

I fear.

I don't know much at all about semen analysis so others will give you good answers, but your DH is four years older and sperm tests need to be very new to give accurate results.

They are not stellar results as you know especially in the areas mentioned by you, so this may be a cause for concern and a possible other reason for failure? However, you really need to look at results now as this is the sperm you will be using!

DNA fragmentation can be helped by antioxidant therapy I think and relevant lifestyle changes if they are impacting. Again, you need a specialist to interpret fresh results for you and DH.

Hoping for good luck for you.

Hi Bharani,
Unfortunately, I too agree your test is too old.
Sperm should be tested in stages, every 3 months.

When determining a course of treatment, it is common to require serial analyses to avoid any spurious results, ideally with the same period of abstinence each time. For instance, patients could be scheduled for three specimens, with 3 days abstinence, a minimum of 3 weeks apart. It is common for patients to repeat their semen analysis every 3 months after starting any treatment, due to the length of time it takes sperm to mature. The results of the semen analysis can indicate any additional testing that might be useful.

Good luck!

I thought one result is enough, or it stays the same. Thanks
