Is teratozoospermia related to hypospermia?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 12/22/2021

Generally no, Hypospermia refers to a low semen volume, less than 1.5 ml total. Therefore, hypospermia is related to oligospermia, that is, a low number of spermatozoa in the ejaculate.

However, a male who presents both alterations, hypospermia and teratospermia, will have a much higher degree of infertility and the possibility of achieving a natural pregnancy will be very limited.
