8% normal sperm cells

What does it mean if test results show 8% normal sperm cells. My gyny says that it means infertility but the urologist says that it means nothing?

Dear Vanessa

The 8% morphology must be taken in context of the absolute sperm count itself. If the total sperm count is within the normal range, then the 8% may not be significant and can still be compatible with natural conception. However, if there are other factors such as motility and decreased numbers, then the 8% will be significant and intra-uterine insemination should be considered.

It probably can but would take a lot longer.

IUI is intra-utarine insemination, also known as artificial insemination. They inject your husband's sperm straight into your uterus.

Hi Vanessa

Yes, you could to either IUI or IVF to increase your chances.

My husband has only 10% motile sperm and we are busy with IUI (The FS says this increases his sperms capabilities to that of a normal man). Go and see a FS.

Can this 8% sperm be extracted and be planted via IVF?
