It is known that several factors affect sperm motility, such as pH, temperature, ions, osmolality, and ovarian fluid (OF) [22].
Semen analysis provides basic information regarding sperm count, motility and morphology, but the ability of a male to fertilise cannot be completely expressed.

Here, we present a low-cost and rapid paper-based microfluidic approach for quantifying male fertility potential that simultaneously measures 3 critical semen parameters in 10 min: live sperm concentration, motile sperm concentration, and sperm motility.
In vitro studies evidenced that inositols, and mainly the prevalent isomer myo-inositol (MI), are sugars strongly involved both in spermatozoa maturation and in their migration from the epididymis [8-11], suggesting a potential role for these molecules in affecting sperm motility and fertility.

Subsequently, 20 [micro]L of this dilution were placed between a slide and coverslip, and rates from 0 to 100% were assigned to the motility rate, depending on the percentage of motile sperm; and point rates from 1 to 5 were assigned to the vigor of the spermatic movement.
We aim to predict results of varicocelectomy on sperm density and progressive motility using preoperative clinical, laboratory and radiological data and to propose cut-off values for significant parameters.
