What should I do for low motility of sperms?
Q: I am 25 years old, married for the past 2.5 years. We are trying for a child for the past 4 months, but my wife did not conceive. The doctor asked us to undergo certain tests. My wife's reports are normal and my sperm count is 98, but motility is only 8%, which should normally be 60%. I also have gastric problem due to which I am not able to take medicines prescribed by the doctor. What should we do?
A:A good sperm count with poor motility on one semen analysis needs confirmation by another semen analysis after a gap of 2 to 4 weeks. The most common investigations needed are doppler examination of scrotum for varicocoele, investigating for infections or inflammation in the sperm passage organs and excluding the presence of antisperm antibodies which are capable of killing your sperms. You should consult a Urologist who would organise all these investigations and would be able to guide you to future course of action.
