Sperm Count | Nucleus Health

A semen analysis is a test done on men to measure
the amount and quality of their reproductive fluid, called semen, and their reproductive
cells, called sperm. A man’s reproductive system includes two glands, called testicle
or testis. They are located in a pouch of skin called the scrotum. The scrotum is outside
the body, which keeps the testicles cool enough to make sperm. Connected to each testicle
is a mass of coiled tubes called the epididymis. Each epididymis stores immature sperm while
they continue to develop. During sex, sperm travel through a tube attached to the epididymis
called the vas deferens to another tube called the ejaculatory duct. There sperm mix with
fluid from two glands called seminal vesicles as well as the prostate gland. Now called
semen, this fluid mixture exits the body through the urethra, the tube inside the penis that
usually carries urine. During sex with a woman, this process, called ejaculation, deposits
semen in her vagina. Semen contains tens of millions of sperm. From the vagina, sperm
can pass through the cervix, uterus, and fallopian tubes to fertilize an egg from the woman’s
body. Fertilization of the egg marks the beginning of human development during pregnancy. A man’s
doctor may recommend semen analysis if he is unable to get a woman pregnant after at
least a year of unprotected sex, or after six months if she is over 40, or if he has
had a birth control procedure called a vasectomy. The test may be done to make sure there are
no sperm in the semen. For semen analysis men need to provide a semen sample after not
ejaculating for two to five days. Usually men collect semen in a cup or jar after stimulating
themselves to ejaculation, called masturbation. Or a doctor may provide a special condom to
collect the semen at home during sex. It is important to collect all of the ejaculated
semen. Samples collected at home should be kept at body temperature and returned to the
lab within two hours for reliable results. In the lab the person testing the semen will
look at the total amount, or volume of the semen sample. The normal volume range is one
and a half to five milliliters, or about a third of a teaspoon to one teaspoon. If the
semen volume is too low, it may not have enough sperm or enough fluid to nourish and help
transport the sperm to a woman’s egg. The lab will also look at the thickness of the
semen. If the semen is too thick the sperm will be trapped within it. Next, three main
tests will be done on the semen sample under a microscope. First, a test called a sperm
count will measure the sperm per milliliter of semen. If the sperm count is low, it decreases
the chances of getting a woman pregnant. Second, a motility test will look at the way sperm
move or swim. If the sperm have poor motility, they swim too slowly, don’t swim properly,
or don’t move at all, with poor motility the sperm may not be able to move towards
a woman’s egg to fertilize it. Third, a morphology test will look at the shape of
the sperm. Sperm with abnormal morphology may have a shape that causes poor motility
or the sperm may not be able to fertilize an egg, even if they reach it.

  1. so my grandpa has give us 6 uncles and 1 auntie then us father and one mother is more like 12 we're cousin's

  3. What is a sperm. A sperm is a kind of fish in waters. Sperms are living organisms just like skin or eyes etc. It is an organelle by itself. Semen is blood cells with protein liquid with semen. When they are within body they smell like blood. But once they are out they stink like dead fish along with the protein and fat and fiber and blood. That's why young guys stink but urine dissolve some just like how you preserve fish using salt. Every day you have to wash to remove stinking. Some get diseases because of not proper care including the joks they wear. Just to make it simple. Some people have to go to a doctor to get to know that. The whole human body is a kind of stinking oven and it is always good to clean once in a while. Also internal organs has to be cleaned by taking proper balanced diet and once in a while no food except water like fasting. Some times clean environment hiking leaving the busy cities.
