Characteristics of a Healthy Sperm Cell

Sperm cells are the male gamete cells that are produced in the testicles. They are contained in the semen, which is the fluid carrier of the sperm.

A healthy and normal sperm cell must have the following;

A Head: the head must be smooth, oval in shape and must resemble the shape of an egg. The size must be about 2.5 to 3.5um in diameter and 4.0 to 5.5 um in length. It must be 40 to 70% covered with a well developed acrosome (this helps the sperm penetrate the egg coat).

The Body: this is the middle section that has the same length as that of the head. It must be slimy in nature.

The Tail: A thinner tail section that is about 45 micrometer in length. This is used for movement.

Having discussed the characteristics of a normal sperm, now, what makes your sperm healthy as a man?

What Makes a Sperm Healthy?

There are three elements that help show that your sperm are fertile and heathy enough to impregnate a woman. They include; quantity (count), movement (motility) and structure (morphology).


Quantity of a healthy sperm

This has to do with the number of sperm cells (sperm count) in the semen. On the average, a sperm count of 15 million milliliter per semen or more is most likely to fertilize an egg faster than a lesser sperm count. A reduction (oligospermia) or total inability (azoospermia) to produce sperm cells is what leads to infertility in men.


Movement of a healthy sperm

Sperm cells do not move at the same rate. Normally, not all sperm cells move effectively, only about 40% need to move towards the egg for one to fertilize the egg. The lower the average motility, the lower the chance of fertilization. And that means, higher motility rate means higher chances of fertilization and invariable, pregnancy.


Structure of a  healthy sperm

For a sperm cell to successfully achieve fertilization, it must be well shaped. In fact, this is very important. High sperm count and high motility will be useless if the sperm cells are not well shaped.

With all this said, how do you achieve producing healthy sperm cells as a man if you are having male infertility issues.
