One third of male fertility issues are due to the so called “male factor”. Theoretically about 50% of fertility issues are male related. Sperm with low motility score is one of the wide spread fertility disorders. Sperm motility score should be studied in the laboratory, equipped with modern magnification equipment. The normal motility score represents the percentage of sperms which actively move into the forward direction. The good count score is also a crucial component of fertility in men. Low count and sperm motility is a common cause of male infertility and should be approached in holistic and interdisciplinary way. To get better idea of treatment patterns at European fertility center, let us look at some of the techniques, which help to manage and increase the sperm motility.
What is important in assessing the sperm quality?
Low sperm motility is one of the most challenging reproductive health conditions and needs comprehensive diagnosis, with semen analysis done by a trained urologist being the most informative diagnosing steps. The following factors are important in the semen analysis:
- The volume of the released semen should be 2 to 5 ml. The lower volume may indicate decreased function of male reproductive organs.
- The quantity of sperm per milliliter should be at least 10-20 million (in the norm of 40 million spermatozoa) per ml.
- The mobility of sperm cells - normally the semen should contain 60 and 80% of mobile spermatozoa. The predominance of fixed (non-motile) spermatozoa says about infertility or inflammatory diseases of male reproductive organs.
- Sperm color should be normally milky white (deviation may indicate different diseases). Pinkish sperm indicates the content of blood in it, and yellow or greenish – diseases of inflammatory or infectious nature.
Please mind that only after thorough study of these and many other specifications can the treatment of male infertility begin. Home remedies are efficient only as supplementary means and should not be overestimated.
Modern medicines help improve sperm motility
In сase of low scores of sperm motility, the doctor may prescribe modern hormone medications to increase sperm count and motility. The purpose of such a hormone treatment is to block the male body production of female hormones and reduce their content.
In addition, natural remedies are widely prescribed to improve the quality and quantity of sperm in the short term. Homeopathy, vitamins (Vitamin C, Beta-carotines, Zinc) and various natural dietary supplements (e.g. L-arginine or L-carnitine) have also proved to be efficient in managing the low sperm count and low sperm motility. Important is to perform the comprehensive diagnosis in order to eliminate the root cause of sperm deviation and to avoid the overtreatment.
