ABSTRACT
Background: Infertility is a stigma in our social environment where 40-50% is due to male infertility.
Aim: To evaluate the different patterns of semen abnormalities seen with associated factors.
Methods: A prospective study was carried out at the Pathology Laboratory on seminal fluid with male factor as the cause for infertility. Semen samples were analyzed by manual method, using WHO guidelines.
Result: Out of 110 samples studied, 74 were Normozoospermia with normal semen parameters and 36 had abnormal semen parameters. Oligoasthenozoospermia was more evident (23), followed by Oligozoospermia (7), Asthenozoospermia (3), Azoospermia (2) and Teratozoospermia (1).
Conclusion: Semen analysis remains the cornerstone for evaluating infertility in males. More than the seminal volume given importance; the count, motility and morphology are the most valuable factors of male infertility. Negative lifestyle has a significant impact on semen parameters especially with cigarette smoking and to some extent alcohol consumption.
