Normal sperm count: Everything you need to know
Normal Sperm Count: Understanding Your Semen Analysis
A normal sperm count is approximately 48 million sperm per milliliter of semen, with a normal sperm count range being 40 to million sperm per milliliter of semen. A low sperm count which would indicate subfertility or infertility would be less than 15 million sperm per milliliter of semen. A low sperm count called oligospermia generally means that a man may need extra time or some medical assistance to conceive. For a mild case of oligospermia, intrauterine insemination IUI is often the treatment of choice. For a more severe case of oligospermia, it is likely that IVF will be necessary to conceive.

Quick Definition: The definition of motility is the ability of an organism or fluid to move. Sperm motility refers to the movement and swimming of sperm. Poor sperm motility is also known as asthenozoospermia. Sperm are motile cells.
Sperm Motility refers to how well the sperm in a given semen sample are moving and it is one of the parameters looked at in a semen analysis. Natural conception and pregnancy cannot happen if sperm are unable to move. Not all the sperm have to be able to move, though. Doctors also take into consideration progressive motility — how many sperm are able to move from one place to another, as opposed to just twitching around or going in circles.
