Can infection in semen cause low motility? if yes, then which parameter in semen analysis test detects infection in semen?

1 Doctor Answered
Infection can cause low motility but very few infections can cause it. There are numerous methods to detect infection- from routine analysis, culture of semen, prostatic massage, urethral swab etc. But all the tests are not done in a man. After checking the man, we decide whcih test should be done in his case.
