results of hubby sperm test

My hubby's test came back borderline with low motility and abnormally shaped. He waited 6 days before an emission. Will that affect the results of the test?

Usually, its a good idea to repeat the semen test multiple times atleast 2 or 3 times than just by going with 1 report, also 3 days of storage should be good enough than 6 days, 3 days gap will give fresher stuff. good luck.

Hi babyhope, my husband had the same on his first sample through a clinic. We didn't have a good vibe from the clinic so we went to another and on the second semen test not only did it come back normal but very good! So my advice is to have it tested again and follow the advice they give about improving the sperm because I feel that also helped. Good luck .
