Answer to your Health Question


My sperm is just like water but comes in large amount, so

What amount of sperm discharge is referred to as good sperm count?



Dear Sadiq,

The force and amount of semen that will be ejected during an ejaculation will vary widely between men and may contain between 0.1 and 10 milliliters.

Adult semen volume is affected by the time that has passed since the previous ejaculation; larger semen volumes are seen with greater durations of abstinence.

The number of sperm in an ejaculation also varies widely, depending on many factors, including the time since the last ejaculation, age, stress levels, and testosterone.

Greater lengths of sexual stimulation immediately preceding ejaculation can result in higher concentrations of sperm.

An unusually low sperm count, not the same as low semen volume, is known as oligospermia, and the absence of any sperm from the semen is termed azoospermia.

Oligospermia (originally oligozoospermia) refers to semen with a low concentration of sperm ('sperm count')

A low sperm count would be defined as less than 20 million sperm per ml of semen.

On average, sperm count should be above 60 million/ml.

According to the National Institutes of Health, a "good" sperm count is characterized by several factors.

The amount of sperm per volume of semen is very important for fertility. On average, each ejaculation should produce 1.5 to 5.0 milliliters of semen.

The average sperm count is 20 to 150 million per milliliter of semen.

The shape and motility of the sperm can also affect male fertility. In order for a sperm count to be considered normal, at least 60 percent of the sperm should be normally shaped and able to swim forward.
