Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To determined the frequency of various infertile male population by conventional method.

METHODS: Conventional semen analysis method was used according to the world health organization guidelines. Statistical Package for social sciences version 21.0 was used for statistical analysis.

RESULTS: Out of 1103 specimen, 88 (7.97%) were azoospermic, 108 (9.79%) were oligozoospermic and 406 (36.8%) were asthenozoospermic.

CONCLUSION: Comparatively the azoospermic population was decreased approximately 50% with reference to the previous studies, oligozoospermia was slightly decreased and asthenozoospermia was slightly increased. New technique for the measurements of sperm motility should be accurate and more precise. Need a molecular study regarding the infertility level of male population.
