Just one sperm

If just one sperm can impregnate a female, why do we need so many sperm in semen? It is the sixty-four-thousand-dollar question.  Let us deliberate all about that one sperm.

One-sperm Vs. 100-million-sperm

According to experts in the field, an average ejaculation of a semen by a male penis releases nearly 100 million sperm. They categorically pronounce that less than 20-million sperm per milliliter of semen will have infertility issues.  Isn’t it a mind-boggling question?  When just one sperm is needed for achieving a pregnancy, why and how should a man  releasing 20-million sperm will have infertility issues?

Though the answer lies in the law of nature,  some Gnostic Theists, who profess to know the Godly process, say: “God does not reveal the algorithm he has created to live and lead a healthy life”.

Let us not get into the controversy of believing or not believing in the existence of God and the people’s faiths and skepticisms.

The experts and specialists working in the field of treating infertility believe that the nature helps us to have a healthy baby.  In the process, it does not mind destroying weak or unhealthy sperm before reaching the egg and fertilizing it to create an embryo. They term it as a race among sperm wherein only the healthiest sperm will reach its ultimate destination to fertilize the egg and produce a baby.

In fact, all sperm enjoy traversing this tough journey to reach the ultimate destination i.e. uterus through Fallopian tubes.  The healthiest among millions survive to reach the egg that is again covered by a thick layer. Now, the one that is able to penetrate the thick layer surrounding the egg is the real winner to conceive a baby.

Wow is the natural process of attaining parenthood!

Life span of a sperm?

The life span of a sperm depends where is it placed? The answer depends on a number of factors. The most important of them is where the sperm are located.

  1. If the semen liquid is on a dry surface – maybe, on clothing or bedding, the sperm will start getting dead as the liquid dries. And, by the time the semen is dry, no sperm will be alive.
  2. Sperm have the tendency to thrive in warm and wet conditions. So, in a hot bathtub, they live longer than that on dry surface. But, mind it, there is only a remote chance of getting a female pregnant bathing in the same tub.
  3. After copulating, the sperm generally can live up to five days inside a female’s body depending on the certain environs in the body. A female may may achieve pregnancy.

Improve your sperm’s health

Now that you know that the healthiest sperm can help in not only achieving pregnancy, but also having a healthy baby, let us deliberate how to improve the health of your sperm.

  • Say no… no… to smoking;
  • Say goodbye to drugs, especially anabolic steroids;
  • No junk food pleases, only healthy diet;
  • Watch and balance your weight;
  • Avoid cigarettes and drugs, especially anabolic steroids;
  • Limit or moderate your alcohol consumption;
  • Keep away from pesticide and heavy metal toxins;
  • Don’t wear tight briefs or trousers; (researchers say tight jeans may cause infertility among men and women);
  • Avoid bathing in water that is exceedingly hot;
  • Keeping your scrotum cool will increase your sperm production

Know about Semen Analysis

The semen analysis test is performed to know the root cause of male infertility.  The semen is collected in a cup to perform this test. It provides the doctors the behavior of your semen and sperm in it. The treating doctors generally try to find out:

Amount of semen

Usually, at one time, a man ejaculates about 2 to 6 ml (milliliters) of the semen equivalent to ½  to 1 teaspoon.  Less less 2 ml of semen is not considered enough to achieve pregnancy as the sperm in it will be very less.

Thickness of semen

At the time of ejaculation, the semen should be thick.  And, after 10 or 15 minutes, it should get  thinner to facilitate free movement of sperm.  If the semen does not get thinner with the passage of time, it will make difficult for sperm to move freely.

Sperm Density

The density of sperm is measured by the number of sperm in one ml of semen. Generally, twenty million of sperm in one ml of semen are considered normal. And less than that are considered to have Low Sperm Count.

Motility of sperm

Motility of sperm is related to sperm movement. If 50 percent of sperm in the ejaculated semen are found to be moving in a straight line, that is considered normal. If the sperm are finding difficulty in moving forward, it is assumed that either the semen is too thick or the sperm are not that healthy.


Sperm Morphology tells us the size, shape and appearance of sperm in semen.  In this test, about 200 sperm are analyzed to know abnormality in them, if any. This is an analysis of the sperm size, shape, and appearance.

Semen Analysis after Vasectomy

Sometimes semen analysis is performed after Vasectomy.  This test is performed to know the presence of sperm in semen after the surgery.

For how long a man can be fertile?

While women’s fertility ceases with the onset of menopause, men continue to produce sperm and remain fertile throughout their lives.  There are numerous examples of elderly men fathering children.
