In a group of normospermic donors exhibiting hamster oocyte penetration scores of 0-100%, multiple regression analysis indicated that only 20% of the variation in fertilizing potential could be explained by differences in the movement characteristics of the spermatozoa following incubation in vitro. When the movement characteristics of the spermatozoa in semen were considered this figure was reduced to 6.8% as a result of significant differences in the motility patterns exhibited by the seminal… CONTINUE READING
