Abstract: In the assessment of unexplained infertility the evaluation of seminal characteristics is primary and paramount, as far as the male is concerned. We present in this article our experience with semen analyses of 100 infertile males. The collection and examination were according to standardized and well accepted methodology. We found that majority of infertile men were within the age interval of 26-30 years, and had been married for 1-3 years, when they first submitted themselves for fertility assessment. The physical parameters were found to be important, in that they in many patients pointed towards a specific physical cause; depletion in semen volume, altered colour, and pH changes were found especially informative. We also found the microscopic arm of semen analyses very useful in pin-pointing existing deficits in the male. Some significant correlations were also observed between abnormal microscopic parameters and clinical conditions. The results are discussed.
