Abstract

Introduction: Routine semen analysis remains the backbone in the evaluation of male factor infertility, besides detailed medical history and thorough physical examination. Male factor is responsible in at least 50% of cases of failure to conceive.
Aims and Objectives: To evaluate the seminal patterns in male partners of infertile couples and to identify possible contribution of male factors to overall infertility problem.
Materials and Method: Ours is a retrospective study of all semen samples collected from 1st July 2015 to 30th June 2016. Various Seminal parameters were evaluated like volume, pH, liquefaction time, viscosity, pus cells, sperm count, motility and morphology according to WHO (World Health Organization) criteria.
Results: There were total 159 cases. The age ranged from 20yrs to 43yrs.The most common abnormalities found in our study were oligozoospermia and azoospermia.
Conclusion: Semen quality remains a significant contribution to overall infertility. Semen analysis is still a cornerstone laboratory evaluation and contributes to defining the possible male factor to a couple’s infertility.
