Hi everyone. My DH and I have been TTC for 3+ years. In addition to my DOR, we are also dealing with MFI. We got his test results today from his analysis a couple weeks ago. I understand everything but two categories - WHO and SSM. I can't find any information online explaining this and I can't call the office until the morning. Anyone know what this means and what's normal?
These are the new 2009 guidelines for spermanalysis and spermcount and semen parameters by the World Health Organization (WHO)
At the end of 2009 the World Health Organization (WHO) has published new reference guidelines for semen parameters.
These guidelines were generated by evaluating 4,500 men in 14 countries whose partners had less than or equal to 12 months time to pregnancy (TTP). WHO found that with a 95% confidence, men whose partners had TTP of 12 or fewer months had NO LESS than the following:
Semen volume: 1.5 ml
Total sperm in the ejaculate: 39 million
Sperm per ml: 15 million/ml
Vitality: 58% live
Progressive motility: 32%
Total Motility: 40%
Morphologically Normal: 4%
