A study was undertaken to know the colonization frequency of bacteria in the semen and cervical mucus of 126 infertile couples and to analyse the semen parameters and formation of antisperm antibodies in relation to genital bacteria. Bacteria were isolated from 12% and 8% of fertile men and women and 31.7% and 25.3% of infertile men and women respectively. Although, a statistically significant difference was noted in sperm count and motility (P < .005) between the infertile culture positive and culture negative group, no significant difference was noted in the volume and morphology. We did not find any significant association of antisperm antibodies in the culture positive group.
