Colour: Greyish White
Transperancy: Opaque
Viscosity: Viscid
Time of
Collection: 1:55pm
Time of
Liquification: 2:25pm
pH: 7.5

Fructose: Positive

Total Count: 80 Million/ml
Live Count: 50 Million/ml
Sperm per
Ejaculate: 400 Million

Percentage Motile Sperm: 63%
Rapid Linear Progression: 10%

Tapering: 10%
Duplicate/Double: Bent Head = 15%
Amorphous: 10%
Round: 15%

Midpiece Abnormalities: 20%

WBC : 2
RBC: 1

according to the normal range mentioned on the report there are 2 things which are low, RAPID LINEAR PROGRESSION (should be more then 25%) and the NORMAL FORM (which should be more then 30%).
I read on the internet that if the semen analysis contains more then 1 White Blood Cells that would mean that either there is an infection or infertility issue.

please help me, will i be able to have a baby, i am married for about 2 years.

Overall your numbers aren't bad and yes you should be able to have a baby someday.

You need to have your local urologist review these results with you and see if you have prostastitis or epididymitis causing an increased white blood cell count. These are easily treated and some men just get it from time-to-time.

The prostatitis or epididymitis can be the cause of low normal forms and lowered progressive motility and should improve after treatment.

If you are actively trying for a pregnancy please follow these sperm healthy lifestyle guidelines to help improve the morphology and motility.

Sperm-Healthy Lifestyle

1. No heat to the scrotum and groin areas. Heat causes damage to the sperm cells so stay away from hot tubs, saunas, Jacuzzis or soaking in baths above body temperature.
2. Stay well hydrated. Drink plenty of fluids. Caffeine is okay in moderation.
3. Eat a well balanced diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Red meat and fish should be consumed regularly.
4. Regular ejaculations, every 24-48 hours, to keep the system revved up.
5. Avoid testosterone replacements and all male hormone/androgen supplements. These can drastically reduce or even zero-out sperm counts.
6. Absolutely no tobacco in any form. Tobacco use causes DNA damage to sperm cells that leads to lower pregnancy rates, increased incidence of miscarriage and birth defects. This holds true for marijuana and other recreational drugs.
7. Alcohol in moderation. Excess drinking is associated with significant sperm toxicity.
8. Maintain a healthy BMI level. Excess fat tissue results in increased estrogen and lowered testosterone.
9. Avoid cells phones in pants pockets or belt clip attachments. Do not place laptop, tablets or other computer devices directly on lap.

When it comes to supplements more does not always equal better so please follow the dosages below. If you are not a fan of taking all these individually we would recommend purchasing a male fertility blend vitamin such as FertilAid for Men, Fertility Blend for Men, Conception XR or other blended multivitamins containing a majority of these ingredients such as GNC's B-Complex 75 Complete (as low as $9.59/month) with the addition of the missing items. Fertility Boost for Men can also be added to help improve sperm motility and forward progression.

Always consult your primary care provider before starting any supplements.

Home tests do not give a patient any information on sperm quality so it is wise to save the money on the home test and spend on an official test done at an accredited medical testing laboratory.
