The process of life gestation is the combination of male sperm cells and female egg cells, and the quality of semen is the key to life gestation. If the semen is abnormal, it will lead to the decline of male fertility and even male infertility.
What is normal semen like?
The normal ejaculated semen is viscous, milky white, and contains gray white clots. After about 10-20 minutes, the clots will liquefy and become translucent and turbid thin mucus.
(1) Semen volume: 2~6ml normally.
(2) Color: normally gray white or slightly yellow.
(3) PH: The normal pH of semen is 7.2-8.0.
(4) Liquefaction time: after normal semen is ejaculated, it becomes gelatinous under the action of seminal vesicle coagulase, and becomes liquid under the action of prostate liquefaction enzyme after 15-30 minutes, which is semen liquefaction.
(5) Viscosity: contact the glass rod with the liquefied semen and gently lift it to form semen silk, which is less than 2cm in normal length.
(6) Sperm count: normal count ≥ 20 million/ml.
(7) The proportion of normal sperm: the proportion of normal sperm ≥ 50%.
(8) Activity: ≥ 50% of sperm move forward rapidly in a straight line.
(9) Survival rate: usually refers to the examination within 1 hour after ejaculation, and the live sperm ≥ 50%.
(10) White blood cells: white blood cells in normal semen are less than 1 million/ml.
If a man has sperm abnormalities, he needs to go to a professional andrology hospital for examination and treatment as soon as possible, so as to avoid the decline of male fertility and even the serious situation of male infertility due to untimely treatment.
