infertility ratio 1:9
My hubby went for a semen analysis twice in the last yr. On both, it says he has 1:9 infertility ratio. What is the norm for this? Is this good or bad?

Dear Lals

Expressing infertility on the basis of a sperm analysis in the form of a ratio is unusual and does not comply with the WHO recommended report on semen analysis. I would suggest that you post the full semen analysis result for me to give you any additional advice on this matter.
