The article discusses a study that examines the reproducibility and reliability of young men at risk of infertility. The study reveals substantial agreement between consecutive semen analyses at risk of infertility including total motile count. It states that the retrospective cohort study involved patients with history of surgically-corrected unilateral or bilateral cryptorchidism or non-operated varicocele. The semen analyses were taken from total sperm count, semen volume and semen motility.
