The semen analyze of my husband showed a ph of 6.5. As far as I know, this indicates an acidic semen, How much of a problem is this in concieving? What could be the root of the problem? Thank you for your answer
A normal pH of the semen is 7.5 -8.5. However, the most important semen parameters to evaluate are sperm count, sperm motility or movement, and sperm appearance. If these were normal, the clinical significance of pH is clinically negligible.
