Semen analysis result help


#1

hi there, my wife and i have been trying for 15 months now. went to an urgent care doctor for a cold she was having and it got brought up that we were trying for 15 months so the dr sent us for a semen analysis. since he was not a fertility dr he didnt really explain the results to us, just said it wasnt impossible to have a baby but will be hard. can someone explain these to me?
what is my sperm count? (like how many million?) i dont understand difference between sperm concentration and sperm count could someone help with that? do these results look ok, is it possible that we can conceive or are they too low to conceive? any help would be greatly appreciated.
i am 31 yr old, never done drugs or smoked, dont drink, in fairly good shape. wife has a daughter from previous relationship.

liquiefaction : normal
appearance : normal
semen volume: 2.5 ML (normal is 2.0-5.0ml)
viscosity: normal
sperm motility: 43% (normal >=50%)
sperm concentration: 10.4 ml ( normal >=20) unit (x10 ^6 ml)
total sperm count: 26.0 (normal >=40) unit (x10 ^ejac)
sperm normal forms 44 (normal >=60%)

This will explain normal levels of a S/A.

Volume: >1.5 mL
Count: >15 million/mL(count can get a bit confusing…technically, count means total number of sperm per milliliter volume of semen - or a sperm concentration)
Total NUMBER of sperm: >39 million
Morphology (normal forms, in your case): >4% (Kruger Strict criteria); minimum 14-40% WHO criteria (range, depending on who you talk to )
Motility: overall motility percentage should be >50%. Of those 50% that are moving, you want at least half of the 50%, so 25% total, to be moving forward quickly, or to be Grade A or Grade 4 (doesn’t look like they assessed the different motility grades.)

I’d say request another s/a just to get another test to see if the numbers are around the same. Sometimes you guys can have bad days and get a low test. You aren’t far off from normal.

Does wife not have any fertility issues? Just because she has a daughter doesn’t mean she couldn’t have ended up with secondary infertility.
