Does poor sperm vitality correlate with abnormal sperm morphology?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 11/26/2018

Yes, teratozoospermia can affect both live and dead sperm.

Dead sperm do not have an abnormal morphology in all cases. Sometimes, they are confused with immotile sperm, and performing a dye test is necessary to determine whether they are actually viable or not.
