(A review of the abnormal semen report)

Test results of male fertility help you to detect infertility in men. The male fertility test involves semen analysis. Don’t worry about the results when you have submitted your sperm sample for analysis. Your andrologist, a male fertility specialist, will help you find solutions to your reproductive issues. This blog provides you guidance on abnormal semen reports and how to make changes in your lifestyle for better sperm health.


A semen analysis could produce an abnormal result if the semen volume, sperm count, sperm morphology, or sperm motility do not meet medical standards.

Commonly observed abnormalities are as follows:

  1. Azoospermia-Absence of sperm in the ejaculate. Almost 10 -15% of infertile men suffer from this problem.
  2. Aspermia-Ejaculation with a complete lack of semen(dry orgasm).
  3. Oligospermia – It is the most common cause of male infertility. It can be classified as mild, moderate, or severe, depending on the severity.
  4. Asthenospermia or Asthenozoospermia– Asthenozoospermia is the term used to describe reduced sperm motility.
  5. Teratozoospermia– Sperms with abnormal sperm morphology. An abnormal head, midpiece, or tail may be found in the sperm.
  6. Necrozoospermia or Necrospermia– In this condition, the majority of sperm is dead(necrotic). Here, the percentage of living spermatozoa is less than 58%.
  7. Hypospermia– When the volume of the total ejaculate is less than 1.5 ml
  8. Pyospermia-When semen contains a lot of white blood cells. It is also called leukocytospermia


The normal and abnormal ranges are based on percentiles. The percentile means the percentage of men with that particular result who were able to be the father of a child in one year. So, if your results are unusual, don’t get worried. A normal semen result doesn’t guarantee fertility and on the other hand, subnormal results don’t mean that you will never be able to be the father of a child. Moreover, there are lots of other factors influencing the fertility of men.

Make changes to your lifestyle in addition to receiving treatment from fertility specialists to improve the health of your sperm

  1. Reduce your stress
  2. Have a healthy diet
  3. Reduce alcohol intake
  4. Quit smoking
  5. Exercise
  6. Minimize exposure to environmental dangers/toxins


Thus, the test results of male fertility help you to detect sperm health. If your results are abnormal, discuss them with your fertility specialist, and hopefully go for further management. Enjoy a healthy pregnancy journey with your partner by paying close attention to the recommendations of your fertility doctor.
