Treatment for Men with Abnormal Semen

Some of the causes of abnormal semen, such as STDs, infection, retrograde ejaculation, and the ability of the ejaculate to clot properly, can significantly affect male fertility.

It is important to talk with your physician or fertility specialist about the causes of and treatment options for abnormal semen.

Abnormal Semen

Male factor infertility can be caused by abnormalities in the shape and size of the sperm. As with low sperm count, at least two-thirds of the sperm in the ejaculate must be of an adequate shape and size in order to be considered normal. Male infertility can result when the sperm’s shape prevents it from having normal mobility or strength to penetrate the ovum. In fact, some specialists believe that abnormal sperm shape has an even greater effect on male fertility than low motility or oligospermia (low sperm count). A semen test can reveal whether the sperm are of normal shape and size.
