Male fertility in terms of sperm health both in terms of quality and quantity. Male sperm is produced by the testes in the scrotum sac.
Some abnormalities that can occur in sperm and affect male fertility include:
Oligosperms: sperm counts are lower than normal values
Azoosperms: absence of sperm cells in semen
Teratozoospermia: abnormal sperm deformity in the head or tail
Asthenozoospermia: abnormalities in sperm movement
Some risk factors that can affect sperm cells / male fertility are the lifestyle that most often affects, including unhealthy eating patterns, frequent smoking and alcohol consumption, certain medical conditions such as varicoceles, infections in the reproductive organs, metabolic diseases such as diabetes, obesity, consumption of certain drugs, etc.
On laboratory tests that have been done, the results of your husband's FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) hormone test are still in the normal range based on laboratory references. FSH is a hormone that functions for spermatogenesis / sperm cell formation. While testosterone levels are also still in the normal range based on the reference value that is the benchmark of the laboratory. The hormone testosterone also plays a role in the process of sperm cell formation, libido activity in men and the development of male sexual organs.
Liquifaction refers to the level of viscosity of sperm. Ejaculation fluid / semen consists of sperm cells and other protein-containing fluids which generally have a rather thick consistency. Within 15-60 minutes the liquid semen will liquefaction / melt at normal room temperature followed by dead sperm cells. Cement liquid that is too thick will disrupt the movement of sperm, on the contrary if the liquid sperm is less viscous / too liquid it should be suspected of poor sperm quality. Abnormal liquefaction generally occurs if less than 20 minutes of liquid semen has changed the consistency to liquid, on the contrary if it occurs more than 60 minutes indicates the liquid sperm is too thick.
Normaejakulat can indicate that ejaculatory fluid released within the normal range, which is between 2-5 ml with a normal / neutral pH between 7-8. Microscopic examination in sperm analysis should be done to assess sperm cells in terms of quality and quantity.
To help improve male fertility, the following things can be done:
Do a healthy lifestyle
Eat healthy and nutritious foods
Reduce foods high in fat, multiply vegetables and fruit
Inadequate body fluid needs
Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption
Avoid physical and psychological stress
Maintain ideal body weight
Prevent yourself from the risk of sexually transmitted infections
