Introduction: Men infertility could have different causes. The first step in men infertility treatment is semen analysis. Different factors could analyze in semen experiment. One of the important factors is semen PH which the normal range of it is 7.2-8. Materials and Methods: In this study, 200 infertile male referred to Qazvin ACECR Telemedicine Infertility Center were analyzed. In these persons the correlation of semen PH to age, sperm motility, semen viscosity and volume were assessed. These persons were classified in different groups of motility pattern, also classified in 3 groups according to viscosity and volume of semen as Hypo viscosity. Normal and Hyper viscosity. Furthermore the age classification was as follow: 20-29, 30-39, 40-49 and 50-59 years old. Results: In the study of age and PH, p<0.05 and there is a significant correlation between these 2 factors. It means by age increasing, the mean PH increases. About PH and semen volume, there is a significant correlation between these two Parameters that mean by PH increasing the semen volume decreases. Also a significant relation between PH and viscosity was observed. So, PH increasing can due to semen viscosity increasing. In addition, the PH affects sperm motility, it means p<0.05 and there is a correlation between them. In this case PH increasing induces increasing in sperm motility. Conclusion: It seems that PH is a factor that affects male infertility and it has a significant correlation with Viscosity, volume and sperm motility. The analysis of other factors in semen is understudying by this group.
