Anon_61399 posted:
I am a male, 29 Yrs old and married for 2 Years. I had my semen analysis done as my wife's checks are all OK, Results showed 104,000 million sperms. Total Motility is 62% with 25% active and 30% moderately active sperms.

I wanted to know what the chances of pregnancy or what is the least active motile percentage required for pregnancy.

The numbers you provided are within normal parameters meaning you should have no problems conceiving and are a fertile as the next guy off the street. Each month a fertile couple has unprotected intercourse you have a 20% chance of getting pregnant and most couple conceive after 6 months.


With that said... a semen analysis does not predict fertility 100%. Statistically you have enough live sperm to natural conception. If you have been trying for 1 year straight and still nothing you should look into starting a fertility blend vitamin to make sure your sperm quality is high and follow a sperm healthy lifestyle (see past post on this topic).

Couples that test normal for both the male and female fertility parameters can still be faced with infertility. This could be a couples factor. The first thing accessed can be checking if you wife's body is having a negative response to your sperm and killing the sperm so they don't have a chance to swim through the cervix into the uterus on their way to the egg for fertilization. When you mention that you wife checks okay was that a full work up with a reproductive endocrinologist or just her ob? A specialist will do a number of more intensive testing to make sure her ovaries release an egg during her LH surge (ovulation) and perform a HSG test to make sure she doesn't have any blockage of her fallopian tubes.

Intrauterine inseminations with timed ovulations can help improve the odds of conception so discuss with her doctor to see if they offer this service.
