What is sperm analysis?

Sperm analysis (spermiogram) is the first test in the processing of a male partner, and it involves microscopic analysis of ejaculate.

Spermiogram evaluates:

  •  Number and concentration of sperm
  •  Morphological characteristics
  •  Volume
  •  Sperm movement
  •  ph value
  •  Viscosity

 

It is generally accepted that the sample is best analyzed after 3-5 days of abstinence. The diagnosis is never made on the basis of a single sample analysis. If conditions allow, it would be best to do a second sample analysis in the range of 2-3 months.

Normal values of spermiograms according to the criteria of the World Health Organization (WHO, 2010)volumen sjemena je 1,5 – 6,0 ml

  1. pH value 7,2 – 7,8
  2. complete sperm count  ≥ 39 x 105 / ejaculate
  3. sperm concentration  ≥ 15 x 105 / ml
  4. sperm motility ≥ 40 %
  5. progressive mobility ≥ 32 %
  6. sperm morphology ≥ 15 % of normal forms
