Sperm motility index and it?s relation to sperm concentration in subjects with impaired fertility potential

A cross sectional study of sperm motility index (SMI) in normozoospermic and oligoasthenotera-tozoospermic males was undertaken to find correlation between sperm concentration and SMI. Two-hundred subjects with impaired fertility potential were screened for the routine semino-gram parameters along with SMI using sperm quality analyzer (SQA IIB) to find out the SMI in the population of central India and were divided into normozoospermia and oligoasthenoterato-zoospermia (OAT). The SMI in the normozoospermic group was 290 +106.93 and in OAT group it was 55 +26.02 (P<0.05). In conclusion, SMI has progressive linear relation with sperm concen-tration (coefficient of correlation 0.94)
