What is teratozoospermia?

Teratozoospermia, also known as teratospermia, is a semen alteration in which there is a large number of spermatozoa with abnormal morphology.

It is a sperm condition that may lead to serious consequences, such as male infertility. The sperm parameter that is compromised is sperm morphology.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) offers guidelines to evaluate semen parameters (some examples of these parameters are concentration, motility, or morphology). The values set by WHO can be used to determine normality, so if the value of a given semen parameter is below the reference, it may suggest a sperm pathology.

With regard to teratozoospermia, the shape of the spermatozoon is assessed. Formerly, teratozoospermia was diagnosed if 14% of the sperm had a normal shape. In 2010, WHO updated its reference values, and now a man only has to meet a 5% rate of properly shaped spermatozoa to be within normality.

Therefore, in order to diagnose teratozoospermia by the current standards, a man has to show a high rate of dysfunctional spermatozoa; more than 96% of his spermatozoa have to be morphologically abnormal.

This alteration produces male infertility since unproportioned spermatozoa or with odd morphology are unable to swim in the right way; consequently, they have it harder to reach the egg. Even if they make it, they still have to penetrate the egg, so anomalies in the head may hamper this action.

Depending on the degree of affectation, it can hinder getting pregnant naturally to a greater or lesser extent.

Male-related fertility problems account for 30%-50% of the couples that are trying to conceive naturally. The assessment of a man’s fertility begins with a seminogram, followed by a MSC tests (motile sperm count). Once the diagnosis of teratozoospermia is confirmed, the couple has several alternatives to achieve pregnancy.

    Antioxidants are not effective alone in the management of teratozoospermia.

      Dear David,

      your sperm morphology is altered, only 2% of sperm presents normal forms. This may hinder your chances of getting pregnant naturally.

      There exist vitamin and antioxidant supplements that may improve the quality of your sperm. However, if there’s no improvement, you should consider turning to IVF or AI (artificial insemination). With 2% of normal forms, the most advisable option is IVF.

    My husband has 3% normal sperm although he is on Tamoxifen which has improved the count and motility to 65% and 20 million, but the morphology still remains 3%. The sperm is also watery. Can we achieve pregnancy naturally because our first year of trial is over and now we’re in second year of trial.

    • usuario
      Sandra F.

      Hello opy,

      Achieving a natural pregnancy is more complicated with teratozoospermia, since only 3% sperm are normal shaped, with the rest being abnormal and therefore unable to fertilize an egg. Vitamin supplements and antioxidants can be helpful of course, but if even with that your husband’s semen analysis doesn’t improve, you should turn to assisted reproduction to have a child.

    Normal – 2%
    Amorphic – 97%
    Tails – 17
    Neck -2
    No. of spermatozoa – 40

      Sandra F.

      Dear Alice,

      I’m afraid with only 2% of normal spermatozoa, achieving a natural pregnancy is rather difficult. I’m not saying it’s impossible, but the truth is, amorphous sperms are unable to fertilize an egg. Achieving it or not will depend fundamentally on the cause behind teratospermia. For this reason, in some cases it may improve by taking vitamin supplements; however, if not, you’ll have to turn to IUI or IVF.

    Hi. My husband’s SA came back with 2% morphology and the teratozospermic index is 1.46. I had a chemical pregnancy in December but we couldn’t get pregnant again after this. My husband also had to go on prophylactic HIV treatment for a blood spatter. Does this affect the SA and will we ever get pregnant?

    • usuario
      Sandra F.

      Hi Natania,

      If it occurred a few months ago, the prophylactic HIV treatment for a blood spatter could’ve altered the results of your semen analysis. You can take supplements now, and take another SE in a few months to see if the results continue to be altered or have returned to normal. If they continue to be altered, you are advised to turn to assisted reproductive technology (ART).

      Hello ss1234,

      Only 2% of normal forms indicates this is a case of teratozoospermia. With teratozoospermia, the chances of conceiving naturally are low, so you may consider turning to assisted reproductive technology. In your case, ICSI is not necessary in principle as you have 2% normal forms, and ICSI is indicated when less than 1% of sperms are normal. IVF (in vitro fertilization) would be the fertility treatment of choice in your case.

      I hope I have been able to help,

My advice, as I said on my previous comment, is that you wait at least a couple of months. In principle, both the microsurgery and the vitamins you’re taking should help you improve the results.

          I hope this helps,

    Sperm concentration 92 mil/mL

    Round cells: 3.3 mil/mL
    WBC: 1.0 mil/mL

    In my teens I got my girlfriend pregnant, but that was 20 years ago. About a year ago my strict morphology was 3%. I used to smoke marijuana daily. I stopped smoking after the first test, a year ago. I thought my percentage would increase but sadly it went the other way. I do drink daily now.

    If I stop drinking and take vitamins/supplements, do you think I can improve my percentage? If so, what vitamins and supplements do you recommend?

      Sandra F.

      Hi Jes,

      As you may know, toxic habits such as smoking or drinking daily are detrimental for semen quality. So, my advice is that you do not smoke anymore, or drink alcohol. Instead, take vitamins and supplements that help you improve your semen quality.

      In addition, I can see the presence of white blood cells (WBC) in your semen sample is high (1.0 mil/mL), and therefore this is a case of leukospermia. In these cases, the most common is that there is some infection, too. Certain vitamin supplements may help you boost your sperm quality. The following article will give you more info on this: Diet to improve spermatozoa.

      With only 1% normal sperms, getting your wife pregnant naturally may be complicated. With vitamins and antiox, results may improve, so give them a try. Try taking it during 2-3 months and then repeat the test to see if it worked. If not, an ICSI would become necessary.

      Hello Lea,

      What is the measurement unit of WBC 2.0 (white blood cells)? Are you talking about a percentage, millions, cells…? I cannot give you an accurate diagnosis without it. If it stands for 2.0 million/ml there may be an infection, which could be easily cured with a treatment for this type of infections while at the same time taking vitamin supplements. If after that results haven’t improved, you may go for an ICSI cycle.

      Ask your doctor for the most appropriate treatment for WBC infection.

        Hello Dr. Sandra,

        Thx for the reply. As what I have seen in result WBC 2.0 it’s reference value (WHO) and it is equal to WBC/100 sperm cells. And when the doctor read the result she said its ok because the important thing is the total motility of the sperm. My question now: is that ok?

      Hello,

      2% normal sperm morphology translated into teratozoospermia. You can try taking vitamin supplements for a few months and then repeat the SE to see if the results improve. If not, you may need to undergo ICSI.

      Hello Arowolo,

      Taking into account your husband’s results, on the one hand he has asthenozoospermia (poor motility) and severe oligospermia (very low sperm count). He would need to turn to FIV/ICSI to conceive.

    Hi Sandra,

    I went to my local hospital to have a semen analysis test, as me and my wife are trying to have a baby. Below are my results:

    Volume produced 4.9 ml (1.5)
    pH 8.1 (0-14)
    Viscosity: Normal
    Concentration 175mill/ml (15mill/ml)
    Total sperm/ejaculate 857.5 mill(39)
    Liquefacation: complete
    Agglutination: No
    Appearance: Normal

    Motility
    Progressive:53%
    Non-progressive: 4%
    Immotile:43%
    Total No.of progressively motile sperm/ejaculate: 454.475mill(32mill)
    TotalNo. Motile/ml:92.75ml(15mill/ml)
    Morphology:2%Normal(>4% Normal)
    Round cells: Yes 2mill/ml

    Interpretation of test results said Teratozoospermia, but below in the comments section said: “of doubtful clinical significance”.

    Can you please tell me what these test results mean as I am 44 yrs old, my wife is 36 yrs old, and we would love to have a baby. Earliest reply much appreciated,

    Regards

      Dear Muhammad,

      Given that you have only 2% of normal sperm, this is a case of teratozoospermia, yes. My advice is that you take vitamin supplements for 2-3 months and then take another semen analysis to check if it has improved with the supplements. If not, you should turn to IVF to have a baby. Please, take a look at the following post, as it may be of interest: Foods to boost sperm quality.

      I hope this helps,

      Hello RaghuD,

      According to your SE results, this is a case of teratospermia (2% normal sperm). Also your percentage of round cells is quite high (34 m/ml). Since you’re already taking vitamin supplements, continue to do so for at least 3 months and then take another SE to see if the results have improved.

      Best regards

        Hi Doctor,

        First of all thanks for your time and reply. I have done the test on 04/06/2016.

        Volume : 2ml
        Viscocity : 0
        Liquification Time : 30 min
        Ph :7.5 alkaline
        Sperm Count ( mill / ml ) 92

        PUS Cells : 1-2 /hpf
        Epithelical Cells ( NILL )
        RBC’s Cells (NILL )

        Morphology : Normal (4%) Abnormal (96%)

        Head Mid Piece tail

        Amorphous :10 Cytoplasmic droplet : 7 Coiled Tail : 6
        Elongated : 8 Short Tail :13
        Pyriform : 8 Hair Pin Tail : 11
        Macrocephalic :6 Double Tail : 4
        Microcephalic : 8
        Broken neck : 10
        Double Head : 5

        Please look into the report and let me know. I can see there is an improvement from 2-4, hence can I wait for some more time to get a natural pregnancy or do I have to go for ICSI/PICSI methods? Kindly suggest me from this front. Also I didn’t get your point regarding the percentage of round cells is quite high (34 m/ml) in previous report. Is this good or bad? Yes, I am using the tablets from last 50 days and am continuing the same.

        Thanks for your great help here,

      Dear Alex,

      Which unity of measurement is “L”? For example, “Normal – 1L”? Do you mean %? I’ve never seen that before. If it is a %, then you’ve got sever teratozoospermia, and you may need IVF/ICSI to have a baby.

      Dear fblr,

      Given that you’ve got only 3% normal sperm, this is a case of teratozoospermia. But the remaining parameters are fine. As this is not a case of severe teratozoospermia, you can take vitamin supplements to see if your results improve with them. If not, you could give an AIH (artificial insemination by husband) a try. Check this out for further info: Artificial insemination by husband (AIH).

      I hope I have been able to help,

    I assume this is bad? What are our options? What can we do?

    Hi Dr Sandra,

    My gf is pregnant but I’m not too sure that the baby is mine (I found out that she was also seeing her ex), so i went to check my sperm.
    These are the results:

    Liquefaction time: 30 min
    Volume: 3.6 ml
    pH: 7.9
    Count: 91.55 million/ml
    Motility
    Progressive (PR): 60%
    Non Progressive (NP): 13%
    Immotile (IM): 27%
    Morphology Normal: 3%
    Morphology abnormal: 97%
    Agglutination: Nil
    Immature cells: 0%
    Leukocytes: 0.2 million/mL

    What are my chances of getting her pregnant? Thank you so much

    Hi Doctor – Went to doctor and, please, let me know your analysis on the values. Whether I will be able to have a baby in a normal way?

    Very stressed about morphology… Searching on Internet does not seem to give an acceptable range for abnormal headcount. Doctor referred me to a urologist. He said all looks good except head count. But he said he do not want to speculate and let urologist look into it:

    sperm concentration : 42×10^6ml
    ejaculate total count : 88 x 10^6
    motile percentage : 40%
    progressive percentage : 20%
    progressive concentration : 8.4 x 10^6/ml
    normal morphology form 02%
    abnormal morphology forms: 98%
    head defects : 96%
    neck and mid piece defects : 02%
    tail defects : 00%
    cytoplasmic droplets : 00%

    Comment: moderate asthenozoospermia with severe teratozoospermia

    What’s the meaning of this?

    Dear Sandra,

    I am 36 years old.

    pH: 7.6
    Volume: 3.5ml (was 6ml 4 years ago)
    Appearance: Normal
    Viscosity: Normal
    Progressive Motility: 44% (was 57% 4 years ago)
    Agglutination: Nil
    Viability: 85%
    Concentration 110 x 10^6/ml
    Round Cells: 0.4 x 10^6/ml
    White Blood Cells: 0

    Strict Morphology
    Normal: 1% (was 9% 4 years ago)
    Head-piece defects: 74%
    Mid-piece defects: 18%
    Tail-piece defects: 7%

    Normal Motile Sperm Count: 0.484 x 10^6/ml

    Questions:

    1. With all parameters being quite excellent, does that compensate for the 1% normal morphology?

    2. With normal morphology at 9% 4 years ago, what vitamins, supplements, anti-oxidants should I take to increase chances of morphology?

    3. My wife has had 2 miscarriages 4 years and 3 years ago. These were where she was pregnant, but the sac never formed. What are the likelihood that it is caused by my low normal morphology (at that time about 9%).

    4. We have always been on contraceptives. We have finally decided to have a baby. With my low morphology, how long should we try before we decide on the IVF option?

    Thank you very much.

    Dear Sandra,

    We hope you can help. Here is my husband’s semen analysis report done on 22nd of August 2016.

    Volume 0.8
    Liquefaction complete YES
    viscosity NORMAL
    Agglutination NONE SEEN
    Concentration 8.6
    Motility 28
    Progression 2-3
    Normal forms 3%
    Head-peace defects 88%
    Mid-piece defects 9%
    Tail defects 0
    Immature forms –
    Leucocytes 0.1

    Diagnosis OLIGOASTHENOTERATOZOOSPERMIC
    Suitable for ICSI treatment only.

    Our GP didn’t tell us that it’s important to abstain from intercourse/ejaculation 3 to 5 days before semen analysis. So the day of appointment we had intercourse (just couple of hours prior the SE).

    I guess my question is, can this affect the results, but most important the percentage of normal forms?? Could better results be achieved if waited, or not really…?

    We have been trying for 6 months now. I have had an ectopic pregnancy (right side tube removed) in 2002. But I was able to get pregnant in 2003. My daughter is almost 12 years old now. My husband has kids too. But they’re all adults now: 30, 26 and 23 years old.

    We both quitted smoking 4 weeks ago. We enjoy wine glass or two every second night. But eat healthy. I am 38 years old and my husband is 47.

    Thanks for your time!

    Hi,

    My partner just found out he’s got teratospermia with 4% normal. His Dr’s not been much help.
    I’ve just found out my progesterone level is 21 and also Dr’s not been much help but aware it’s not best levels and should be around 30, so Dr said.
    What chances of getting pregnant naturally do we have or where should I go from here?
