dc.description.abstractNo sperm should be regarded too low to consider extensive treatment in order to improve semen or to correct any possible abnormalities in female partners. The infertile couple should be given devoted care and advice to improve their sexual relations and their psychological attitude towards the problem of infertility. A pregnancy rate of 51.9% where the husband's count was less than 10 million/ml, offers adequate support for this statement. In cases of mental trauma inflicted on patients by a verdict of inability to achieve parenthood, viz. on people who have already suffered severe psychological shock and tension resulting from a period of infertility, discouragement lessens the already doubtful chances of achieving pregnancy. In no circumstance should oligozoospermic patients receive treatment for infertility unless a chromosomal analysis has been completed and found normal, since our rate of chromosomal anomalies (11.4%) in a group of oligozoospermic patients is considered to be too high.
