They found sperm in my urine test, is it normal?

No, it is not. It may indicate that your spermatozoa are traveling backwards into the bladder, instead of being expelled from the penis during ejaculation. In other words, it may be an indicator of retrograde ejaculation. It can be detected by a post-ejaculation urianalysis, which may be recommended by your doctor in order to find out other possible causes of infertility.
