Sperm morphology — the size and shape of sperm — is one factor that’s examined as part of a semen analysis to evaluate male infertility. Sperm morphology results are reported as the percentage of sperm that appear normal when semen is viewed under a microscope.
Sperm morphology ranges indicate what percent of sperm are considered normal in size and shape. These sperm are the most likely to be able to fertilize an egg, so the percentage can give you a clue about your chances for conceiving with your partner. The ranges will differ from lab to lab, depending on the criteria used to assess the sperm. Stricter criteria will result in a lower normal range.
According to Dr. Jane Frederick, a leading board-certified reproductive endocrinologist in Orange County California US, “There are different ranges for morphology depending on the lab, but we use a strict Kruger morphology that means 14 percent, or more is normal range. Ten to 14 percent is still good fertility potential, 5 to 10 percent is decreased fertility, and less than 5 percent is poor fertility potential.”
