What is oligonecrozoospermia?

Oligonecrozoospermia is a combination of two seminal disorders: oligozoospermia and necrozoospermia. Therefore, it is a problem both in the concentration of sperm in the ejaculate and in their vitality. Most of the sperm in the ejaculate is dead.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the sperm concentration must be at least 15 million sperm/mL and the percentage of live sperm greater than 58%. If the sperm concentration and vitality values ​​are lower than those indicated, the diagnosis is called oligonecrozoospermia.

If a seminal sample has a low number of spermatozoa and most of them are dead, pregnancy in a natural way will be complicated. In these situations, it is recommended to go to an assisted reproduction clinic.
