    Hello,

    We are planning for a baby and my wife’s fertility reports are fine but in my semen report we figured out some issues as below:

    Volume: 1 ml
    pH: 7.0
    Viscosity: Normal
    Liquefaction: 45 Min
    Fructose test: Present
    Sperm Count: 70 mil/ml
    Sperm Count Per ejection: 70 mil

    Sperm motility @37*C
    Total motility (PR+np,%): 90
    Progressive motility (PR,%) : 80%
    Non motile: 0

    Sperm motility: per 100
    Normal Sperm: 80

    Dear Karthik M P,

    Actually, all your values are normal except for sperm volume, which is below 1,5 ml (the reference value according to the WHO’s criteria). A decreased sperm volume is often related with an age-related decline. The causes of low semen volume are varied. Commonly, it is associated with hypogonadism (low testosterone), diabetes neurological problems, enlarged prostate, high blood pressure, or urinary problems.

    Talk to your doctor to see your options to conceive.

    I hope this helps,

    Best wishes
