Abstract: Considering the importance of selenium (Se) in male fertility, its concentration was measured in 211 semen samples from 211 normozoospermic, oligozoospermic, asthenozoospermic, and azoospermic men using the hydride generation atomic absorption spectrophotometry. No significant correlation of any kind existed between Se level in the seminal plasma and sperm count or motility. In view of the known poor correlation of these two frequently used semen parameters with the incidence of pregnancy, the assessment of the fertilizing potential of normozoospermic ejaculates with low Se levels is warranted.
