As for the normal values of a spermiogram or also called seminogram, the most important ones are:
- Sample volume ≥ of 1.5 ml
- pH between 7.2 and 8.0
- Sperm concentration ≥ of 15 million/ml
- Total sperm count > 40 million
- Progressive motility (A+B) ≥ of 32%
- Living spermatozoa > of 58%
- Normal spermatozoa ≥ of 4%
- REM (sperm capacitation) > 5 million, being this the most determining parameter of the seminogram
