Objectives: The aim of this study was to perform a comprehensive evaluation of the current status of semen parameters in fertile men who had 1 or more children and whose wife had a pregnancy within the last 12 months in Malatya province, Turkey. Methods: Sperm samples were obtained from 131 fertile volunteers and analyzed in terms of sperm volume (mL), number of sperm (sperm/mL), sperm motility, liquefaction, and sperm viscosity using a Makler device (Sefi Medical Industries, Haifa, Israel). The classification was made according to the World Health Organization criteria. Results: The mean ejaculate volume ranged from 1.5 mL to 5.5 mL, sperm count from 27 to 180 million/mL and motility from 35% to 90%. The average sperm motility was found to be 69.9% for grade-A, 7.6% for grade-B, 8.7% for grade-C, and 13.3% for grade-D. Conclusion: The mean spermogram values of fertile men in Malatya province were similar to those determined by WHO for fertile men. This study is significant in terms of providing a regional classification of spermogram values.
