Abstract

Objective : The aim of this study is to describe the sperm profile and eventually determine the main spermatic disturbances at the origin of male infertility in western Algeria.


Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional study in 320 infertile male patients consulting at the Medically Assisted Procreation Unit (MAP) of Oran, in Western Algeria, in the end of exploring the results of their semen analyses and semen culture.


Results: The results of semen analysis revealed that the main spermatic disruption in our study was asthenospermia because at the first hour after emission, 93% of our patients had less mobility than normal.


Oligospermia was present in 37% of cases and azoospermia in 14% of cases. That is, a concentration of sperm below normal in 51% of cases.


Results of the analysis of the sperm’s morphological characteristics revealed that only 16% of our patients had teratospermia.


The semen culture revealed that the main pathogen found in our patients is Staphylococci in nearly 70% of cases.


Conclusion: Our study revealed alterations in both quantitative and qualitative semen of patients. This was mainly asthenospermia in 93% of cases followed by oligospermia.
