  2. Hi lordbodom

    Most of the values in youir sperm analysis are within normal ranges for a healthy sperm sample except for the motility.

    The WHO cut off value for progressive motility is 30% and yours is at 30%. If this is your first sperm analysis your specialist may require you to return for a second analysis in a few weeks time to see if the values are the same.

    In the meantime you may want to read up a little in the following articles:

    What is asthenozoospermia? -definition, causes and treatment.

    Semen quality: What is measured and what can be done to improve it?

    I hope this helps to answer your question.
