Fertility spermogram : why do we have to run? (Part 2)

Fertility spermogram : why do we have to run? (Part 1)

In the first part of this article concerning fertility spermogram you were able to understand that in order to obtain spermogram results that can be compared to reference values, the spermogram has to be executed in the very same manner that reference values were generated.

But why doing all these spermograms so quickly after ejaculation? In fact, it is very easy to understand. The reason is that when a man ejaculates his semen into the vaginal ways of his partner, spermatozoa do not remain into seminal plasma. It hardly takes a few minutes before those with the ability to fertilize go through the cervix and swim away from the seminal plasma. When a spermogram is performed, it is not the goal to measure the bias corresponding to the effect that the seminal plasma exerts on spermatozoa. The goal is rather to observe spermatozoa as they are at ejaculation. The seminal plasma effect is not much interesting because it is not representative of the real fertility mechanism.

But still, how can seminal plasma cause a bias in the fertility spermogram results? You can already guess that it is what I will explain in more details in a future paper about fertility spermograms.

Stay tuned!
