An abnormal sperm count may also indicate an underlying health condition. A normal sperm count ranges from 15 million sperm to more than million sperm per milliliter mL of semen. Anything less than 15 million sperm per milliliter, or 39 million sperm per ejaculate, is considered low. A low sperm count is often referred to as oligospermia. A high, or above average, sperm count is over million sperm per millimeter.

Sperm count is typically one of the first tests performed when evaluating male infertility. Low sperm count decreases your and your partner's odds for conceiving a child, and is one of the most common causes — together with sperm abnormalities and low sperm motility — for infertility in men. What is sperm? Sperm are the male reproductive cells that are continuously produced in the testes and the epididymis located at the top of each testicle. Spermatogenesis is a complex process that takes about 64 days in humans.
Several factors have been shown to influence semen parameters, one of which is sexual abstinence; a clinical criteria included in the semen evaluation to provide maximum sperm quality. The aim of the present study was to assess the effect of a daily ejaculation frequency on conventional and functional semen parameters. Semen samples were collected daily over a period of two weeks of which every second sample per person was processed and analyzed according to the World Health Organization guidelines.
