Sperm motility refers to the movement of the sperm in a man’s body. In a healthy man, normal sperm motility is considered to be 50%. That means at least half of all the sperm in a sperm sample should be traveling forward. If a man’s sperm sample has less than 50% motility, it is considered to have low sperm motility.

Poor sperm motility can really affect a woman’s chances of getting pregnant. Sperm motility is important for fertility because sperm needs to be able to travel forward up the vagina, past the cervix and into the uterus in order to fertilize the egg. It doesn’t matter how much sex a couple has, or what a man’s sperm count is, if the sperm are unable to travel toward the egg.
One of the best ways to improve sperm motility is to make sure that your man is eating a healthy, well balanced diet. Your man can also try a daily multivitamin to help increase his sperm motility. Another option for getting pregnant with low sperm motility is intra-utero insemination (IUI). With this method, the sperm is harvested, cleaned and then inserted into a woman’s vagina.
IVF, also known as in vitro fertilization is another method that can be used when sperm motility is low. However, IVF is a very expensive option and is usually reserved as a last chance kind of option.
