ASAs & Semen Parameters

There were contradictory data on the relationship between the presence of ASAs and semen parameters, such as sperm concentration, motility, viability and morphology. Most published results showed that there was no definite relationship between the presence of ASAs and sperm concentration, motility, viability and morphology.[34] However, serum titers of ASAs were associated with decreased sperm counts and normal forms.[35] The immobilizing ASAs were able to decrease sperm motility and viability.
