Dear Wonder

Apart from sperm motility there might be other sperm abnormalities, which need to be carefully evaluated. Fertility can be increased in a laboratory environment by simple sperm wash techniques and if this is combined with intra uterine insemination, the results are extremely good. Furthermore increasing trace element intake such as zinc and selenium might also contribute towards increased sperm motility.
