That sounds really tough and stressful for both of you. I'm not a medical expert, but the two tests might be using different criteria for what they consider to be 'normal,' hence the different results. Inconsistent results could be due to a variety of factors like timing, test conditions, or even natural variability. Your doctor suggesting a retest is likely a good way to get a more reliable measure. It might also help to consult with your fertility specialist about whether different lifestyle changes or treatments could improve the sperm quality. I'd definitely recommend following your doctor's advice and maybe even seeking a second opinion for peace of mind. Good luck, and I really hope things work out for you two.
Semen situation changes since it is influenced by many factors. Better to follow your doctor's advice to redo testing and in the meantime continue trying and DTD.
Hi, I am sorry you are going through this. I recommend re-doing tests
So, when you read about this, it is actually a very low percentage for ALL men of sperm that are normal. (which then makes it odd they use the word normal). 4 to 10 percent are the norm for 'normal' sperm in all men. Having abnormal semen does not make a man infertile.
