Hubby had an SA. I called to get the results and the nurse said that the RE wrote on the paper that his numbers were ok for either IUI or timed intercourse. Of course, I wanted to get the actual lab results and see the numbers for myself. Now I'm worried...here are the results:
Total sperm number: 378 million
Total motile sperm: 189 million
Count: 105 million
So those are above normal.
Motility is 50% (normal is 50% or more)
Morphology (Kruger Strict Criteria) is only 7% (normal is 14% or more and subfertile is 5-14%)
Now I'm freaking out because I thought everything was fine, but now after looking at his numbers, 7% morphology seems really low Any thoughts??
We just got back my husband's results a week ago and his morphology was 11 which is also not ideal but the last time we conceived it was at 7. Below 14 my RE recommends IUI and they do a wash as well so the good sperm have a betetr chance of reaching their target. I hope this helps to at least let you know you are not alone and that 7 is OK.
While that morphology is a little on the low side, I don't think that it's something that you have to worry much about. The big thing to remember is that the counts are awesome. It only takes one of those guys to get the job done.
