Necrospermia is the presence of an elevated percent of dead sperm in the ejaculate. Thus, the answer is yes, it might be associated with OAT (oligoasthenoteratozoospermia), especially with asthenozoospermia, since the reason why there are immotile sperm in the ejaculate might be that they are dead.
