Abstract

Objective: To assess the relationship between the duration of infertility (DI) and the seminal parameters of a cohort of White-European primary infertile men. Patients and Methods: Data from 1644 infertile men were analysed. Patients were grouped according to the self-reported DI into 12-month time frames. Semen analysis values were assessed based on 2010 World Health Organisation reference criteria. Descriptive statistics tested the difference in clinical, hormonal and seminal parameters between groups. Logistic regression models assessed the impact of DI on semen parameters. Results: A DI of 60 months was found in 207 (12.6%), 651 (39.6%), 387 (23.5%), 168 (10.2%), 92 (5.6%) and 139 (8.4%) men, respectively. Patient's age (P
