Fertility: volume & pH level of semen
An_257866 posted:
I had a semen test done the other day. Motility and count was fine for me. However a cause of concern was my volume of ejaculation 1 ml and pH of 7. Could someone tell me if i can father a child? What type of medicines or food should i take to correct this? Why do i have such a reading for my semen?
Thanks a lot for your advise in advance.

The important figures for fertility are sperm count and motility so, yes, you can father a child. Your pH is slightly on the low side as is your volume - I wonder if you weren't dehydrated the day you did the test? Most doctors recommend increasing your fluid intake (within reason, of course ) to increase volume.

Frankly, I don't think you have anything to worry about
