what is the difference of these two?

LarryGuy - April 18th, 2011 12:30 PM

low sperm count means "the number of sperm that are in a man’s semen"; while sperm motility is how your sperm moves.

Mommycute - April 18th, 2011 12:37 PM

sperm count refers to the number sperm while motility is sperm's movement like if that's fast or weak. simple as this..

coolMOMMY - April 18th, 2011 12:44 PM

Sperm count is measured by counting the number of sperm present in a specific volume of semen. Sperm motility is measured as a percentage of the sperm that are moving forward.

so when to consider that a man sperm motility is normal?

Stephie - April 18th, 2011 1:46 PM

when it is above 50% the sperm motility is considered normal. below that or equals 50% it's considered as low motility.

I'm very curios on what are those things that can contribute to a low sperm count and low sperm motility?

low sperm count and low sperm motility can generally be treated effectively thru IVF or ICSI. However, this is expensive treatment

Theere are some cases that men looked to alternative therapies, ranging from acupressure to homeopathic remedies to help with their low sperm motility, as well.
