    Doctors not only look at the amount of sperm present in the semen sample but also analyze the shape of each sperm. The analysis will determine the number of sperms that are normally shaped and properly formed. In normal conditions, more than 40 percent of the sperms have better shape and correct form.

    Motility or Movement of the Sperm

    The movement of the sperm within the semen sample is also observed during the analysis. Ideally, the sperms should move forward in progression and should be moving sluggishly within the circles. Normally, around 20 percent of the sperms should show forward progressive movement.
