Causes of sperm agglutination

Causes of sperm agglutination

Sperm agglutination may indicate the presence of anti-sperm antibodies. However, this is not the only cause of sperm agglutination.

Other possible reasons why sperm agglutination may occur include the following:

  • Very high concentration of spermatozoa in the ejaculate.
  • Changes in the pH of the semen due to problems in the accessory glands (due to inflammatory or infectious processes).
  • Increased body temperature during febrile processes.
  • Determined types of bacteria can produce agglutination in semen.
