A. Sperm Testing
New guidelines from the World Health Organization (WEHO) have redefined the new 'normal' values for semen analysis but the new lower limits for normalcy are not to be confused with measures of optimal fertility. Low/normal is far from optimal for peak fertility.

The new reference values represent the bottom line - the lowest acceptable values of sperm health - which are much lower than the average values of fertile men. Higher sperm values are known to help speed up the time to conception and are in associated with significantly increased fertility. Normal - especially low/normal - is not optimal when you want to achieve peak fertility but it is helpful to know the bottom-line values.

Male factor infertility is the sole cause of infertility in approximately 20 - 30% of cases, and male factor combined with female factor is associated with 40-50% of all infertility cases. Male infertility is usually diagnosed based upon the results of a semen analysis, which is best performed early on in your infertility work-ups, certainly before using high-tech infertility treatments.

The new WHO guidelines were defined through extensive studies on the semen of 4,500 men in 14 different countries spread over 4 continents, all the men had their fertility confirmed through their partners becoming pregnant in less than a year of trying to conceive.

Semen Volume:
This is the total amount of liquid semen produced in one ejaculation, the average semen volume in the study was 3.7 ml.
New minimum 1.5 ml
Previously set at 2.0 ml,

Sperm Concentration
The average sperm count is thought to be around 60 million/ml and the average in this study was 73 million/ml.
Sperm per ml:
New minimum 15 million
Previously set at 20 million
Dr Peters level 60 million

Total Motility
This value includes all motile sperm, those with forward motion and those with more random motion. Studies show that the greater the motility the better your chances of conception up to a threshold of 60% motility after which greater motility does not seem to make a difference
New minimum 40%
Previously set at 50%
Dr Peters level Above 50%

Morphology
This value refers to the number of sperm with normal shape and structure Previous studies have indicated that fertilization rates were highest when the numbers of morphologically normal sperm were above 14%, and that fertilization rates were very poor, only 7-8% when the numbers of morphologically normal sperm dropped to 4% or below - the level now considered as the bottom line of normalcy

New minimum 4%
Previously 15%,
Dr Peters level Above 15%

pH Level
Range should be 7.2 to 7.8
Acidic levels (lower pH) could indicate the presence of infection.

White Blood Cell (WBC) Count
Over 1 million/ml could indicate the presence of infection.
