Is sperm agglutination always analyzed in a sperm test?

By Silvia Azaña Gutiérrez.
Last Update: 02/05/2021

Sperm agglutination is a parameter that is always taken into account when performing the microscopic examination of a semen analysis.

If agglutination is observed when a semen sample is analyzed under the microscope, the specialist should note it in the report. In addition, the degree of agglutination and the type of sperm union (e.g., grade 2, head-head unions) should be included.
