Abstract
Background: Fructose is the major carbohydrate source of energy for the sperm motility.

Aim and Objective: This study was designed to reevaluate the correlation between sperm motility and semen fructose level in male infertile subjects due to non-obstructive causes.

Materials and Methods: It was a cross-sectional study. As the study sample population, 150 male subjects, with age (mean ± SD) 29.02 ± 5.86 years, were randomly selected from the referred cases from different infertile clinics of Udaipur. Sperm count, sperm motility, and qualitative and quantitative analysis of semen fructose were done. On the basis of sperm count, the sample population was divided into following three groups – Group A (azoospermic), Group B (oligozoospermic), and Group C (normozoospermic). One-way ANOVA was done to compare the sperm count and seminal fructose levels among A, B, and C groups. Kruskal–Wallis test was done to compare the sperm motility. Statistical analysis of result was performed using SPSS-17. P < 0.05 was considered to be statistically significant.

Results: There was a significant difference in the sperm concentration among three groups (P < 0.001). Groups were significantly differing in seminal fructose level (P < 0.001).

Conclusion: This study showed a significant negative correlation between seminal fructose level and sperm motility.

Key words: Male Infertility; Seminal Fructose; Sperm Motility
