Within male factor infertility, 1% had normospermia/absence of any urological abnormality,15% of males were diagnosed with mild to moderate oligospermia, 5% with severe sperm defects like oligospermia, oligo-asthenospermia, azoospermia or aspermia or teratozoospermia and 2% with untreated other urological conditions like unilateral or bilateral varicoceles, hydroceles.
Nevertheless, it remains unknown whether the differences in ROS and capacitation levels after serum supplementation affect the fertilization potential of spermatozoa from patients with inadequate sperm parameters, such as oligozoospermia, asthenozoospermia, and teratozoospermia.
Here, 125 sperm samples included 25 samples of normozoospermia (sperm routine parameters and morphology are both normal), 25 samples of oligozoospermia, 25 samples of asthenospermia, 25 samples of teratozoospermia and 25 samples of oligoasthenoteratozoospermia.

Estos niveles y grados de esterilidad se clasifican de la siguiente manera: azoospermia (ausencia de espermatozoides en el eyaculado), normozoopermia (concentracion de espermatozoides, 4 millones en total o mas), oligozoospermia (concentracion de espermatozoides, menos de 4 millones en total), astenozoospermia (menos del 50% de espermatozoides con progresion lineal o menos del 25% con progresion rapida), teratozoospermia (menos del 50% de espermatozoides con morfologia normal), necrozoospermia (menos del 50% de espermatozoides no viables), y Aspermia (ausencia de eyaculado externo).
