    I really need some advice. My partner and I have a 2 year old daughter, we have been trying for a second child for over a year, my partner was diagnosed with a chronic illness (Behcets) back in January, he was put on medication including colchicine.....this was an error by his consultant, as he knew we were trying but didn't check the contraindications, and we now know it can cause fertility issues, although they should be rectifiable.
    We have just received my partners test results and assume they are not good??

    Semen sample volume 1.9ml
    Semen ph 8
    Semen liquefaction Incomplete after 2 hours
    Sperm morphology 3%
    Spermatozoa 3 10*6ml
    Days abstinence 3 days
    Total sperm number 6 10^6
    Sperm motility 24%
    Progressive motility 6%

    Please help, any advise will be greatly appreciated. :cry:

    We are talking to his doctors and they are going to do all they can to help. I have trawled the internet and read every report I can get my hands on, with regards to vitamins and herbal remedies, we have purchased what looks good and feel slightly more in control. Thank you for replying to me, it was a tough week.

    A sperm count, also known as a semen analysis, is a test of a
    man's ejaculate to check for problems that may contribute to
    infertility. Normal findings vary from one laboratory to the other.

    Here are the WHO (World Health Organization) 1992 criteria:

    Volume: 2.0 ml or more
    Sperm Concentration: Over 40 million total
    Sperm Concentration: Over 20 million/ml
    Morphology: 30% or more normally formed
    Vitality: 75% or more alive
    PH : 7.2-8.0
    White blood cells: Less than 1,000,000/ml
    Immunobead test (%sperm with beads): Under 20
    MAR test (%sperm with RBCs) <10
    Coagulate, Liquify, and Agglutinate: Yes
    Motility: 50% or more with forward progression; more than 20 motile sperm/cc
    Color: Gray/Translucent No Clumping, Sperm-to-Sperm, and Sperm-to-Round Cell
