    Hello ayaz,

    All parameters are OK except motility, which is a bit poor. For sperm motility to be normal, at least 40% of sperm must be active. In your case, the semen analysis shows that only 30% are active, which is not too concerning as the rest of values are normal. In these cases, results may be improved with healthy habits and a balanced diet.

      One more question dear Sandra,
      If I usually have intercourse on the 10th to 20th day of menstrual cycle on a daily basis, will I be able to make my wife pregnant? Can daily intercourse harm my sperm count or quality? Please, give me some advice in this regard.
      Thanks

      Hello ayaz,

      Of course having sex during the fertile window of the woman is totally recommended to increase the chances of pregnancy, especially if you’re trying to conceive. Having intercourse daily does not affect your sperm count, so don’t worry about it. However, given that you have mild asthenozoospermia, it may take you longer.

      How long have you been trying to conceive so far? After one year trying without luck, you should visit a fertility specialist and consider undergoing a fertility treatment to conceive.

      Best regards

      I have been trying to conceive for the last 5 months but no conception happened. Every month my wife has her periods.
