Spotlight on Sperm Function Testing

Couples who are experiencing male infertility may have sperm function testing done, particularly if the male partner had a vasectomy reversal surgery. Sperm function testing is similar to semen analysis, but they aren’t quite the same test. A sperm function test will help the male infertility specialist develop a customized treatment plan that can help the couple achieve pregnancy. 

First, the man must provide a sample of semen, which is examined in a laboratory. The lab technician will examine many aspects of the medical sample, including the total semen volume and the sperm density. The sperm density refers to the number of sperm present in the semen. A typical density is greater than 20 million sperm for each milliliter of semen. The lab technician will also examine the sperm motility (how well it moves), sperm morphology (shape of the sperm), and the presence of white blood cells. High amounts of white blood cells may indicate that an infection or inflammation could be affecting the sperm.

What Is a Normal Sperm Count?

After having a vasectomy reversal, you may have several semen analysis tests to determine whether sperm is once again present in your semen, and, if so, what your sperm count is. When you watch this featured video, you’ll learn the basics of semen analysis results. For example, a normal sperm count is anywhere from 40 to 300 million. A count below 10 million is considered quite low.

It’s considered alright for a sperm count to be no lower than 20 million, as long as the motility and morphology of the sperm are normal. This video also discusses the factors that might affect the results of the semen analysis and how normal sperm motility is defined.

How Does Your Diet Affect Your Sperm Count?

When you’re dealing with male infertility, seeking the counsel of a doctor is the most effective choice to overcome the problem. Men who have had a vasectomy must also undergo vasectomy reversals. However, it can be helpful to make lifestyle changes to complement medical intervention. When you watch this video, you’ll hear about some foods you can include in your diet to support your sperm count.

For instance, the high levels of amino acids in oysters can boost testosterone production in men. The amino acids in dark chocolate can double your sperm count and semen volume. This video also covers the benefits of asparagus, bananas, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, and other foods for overcoming male infertility.
