  2. Hello ayaz,

    All parameters are OK except motility, which is a bit poor. For sperm motility to be normal, at least 40% of sperm must be active. In your case, the semen analysis shows that only 30% are active, which is not too concerning as the rest of values are normal. In these cases, results may be improved with healthy habits and a balanced diet.

    • One more question dear Sandra,
      If I usually have intercourse on the 10th to 20th day of menstrual cycle on a daily basis, will I be able to make my wife pregnant? Can daily intercourse harm my sperm count or quality? Please, give me some advice in this regard.

    • Hello ayaz,

      Of course having sex during the fertile window of the woman is totally recommended to increase the chances of pregnancy, especially if you’re trying to conceive. Having intercourse daily does not affect your sperm count, so don’t worry about it. However, given that you have mild asthenozoospermia, it may take you longer.

      How long have you been trying to conceive so far? After one year trying without luck, you should visit a fertility specialist and consider undergoing a fertility treatment to conceive.

      Best regards

    • Dear dishdev,

      In fact, antidepressants can have a negative impact on sperm vitality, so maybe the cause is related to them. In principle, given that all other parameters are okay, you may improve your sperm vitality by making a few lifestyle changes, including a healthier, vitamin-rich diet.

      Talk to your doctor about it.

      I hope this helps,

      Best wishes

    • Hello Blue.

      Asthenozoospermia is a seminal disorder characterised by a high percentage of immotile or poorly motile sperm.

      The causes of sperm motility problems are diverse: lifestyle, advanced age, fever, exposure to toxins, etc.

      If you are looking for a pregnancy, the best thing to do is to visit a fertility specialist.

      I recommend you read the following article for more information: What is asthenozoospermia? – definition, causes and treatment.

      I hope I have helped you.
      Best regards.
