Explanation Of Sperm Examination Results.?
, I have a sperm test in 2018 July, the results are normozoospermia. and in April 2019 I tested again, the results were teratozoospermia. I planned to incem with my wife, but because my latest sperm test results were not good I was doubtful. If I prepare myself for the sperm test next week (Monday 8 April 2019) well (exercise, healthy eating, adequate rest) is there a possibility that my sperm test results will be as normal as July 2018? thank you

Teratozoospermia is a sperm disorder where the sperm cells produced experience an abnormal shape. This disorder makes it difficult for sperm cells to fertilize an egg, so that it can cause infertility in men. In the examination, both the head, middle, and tail of the sperm are assessed in terms of form and function, and compared to normal form. There are several different criteria to declare someone experiencing teratozoospermia, but generally divide by:
Teratozoospermia is mild, if 10-14% of all sperm are normal sperm
Moderate teratozoospermia, if 5-9% of all sperm are normal sperm
Teratozoospermia is severe, if less than 4% of all sperm are normal sperm
However, the cause of teratozoospermia is not known with certainty. Some things that are known to be related to this condition include:
Psychological factors, such as stress, lack of sleep, fatigue, etc.
Bad habits such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, obesity, etc.
Urinary tract infection
Therefore, checking the condition of your sperm is a good thing to ensure your condition, and it is true that it is advisable to prepare well by doing a healthy lifestyle. However, whether the results can be improved or not, depends on the initial cause of your condition, if only due to lack of nutrition, it might improve, but if due to genetic factors, then the possibility is smaller.
Patients with this condition are still able to have children, but generally need the help of certain technologies, such as artificial insemination, IVF, and ICSI. Always consult with an andrology specialist about your condition.
Thus, hopefully it can be useful.
