Spermogram: Results of spermogram

A single test can not necessarily lead to definitive conclusions about the patient's fertility. It may be necessary to carry out several spermograms, at least 3 months apart, in order to check the results.

For information, here are the "normal" values ​​when analyzing sperm:

  • Sperm volume: between 2 and 5 ml.
  • sperm pH: between 7.2 and 7.8.
  • Number of spermatozoa per milliliter of ejaculate: between 20 million and 250 million (a minimum of 40 million per ejaculate).
  • Sperm mobility: In the laboratory, we study the mobility of spermatozoa after ejaculation, then an hour later ...
  • Vitality of the spermatozoa: at least 75% of them live on ejaculation.
  • Sperm morphology: at least 30% at normal morphology.
  • Zinc assay : more than 2.4 μmol per ejaculate.
  • Determination of fructose: at least 13 μmol per ejaculate.
  • Citric acid dosage : more than 52 μmol per ejaculate.
  • Leukocyte count: less than 1 million per milliliter of ejaculate.
