Abstract

Zondek, Bromberg and Polishuk have suggested1 that oligospermia in men can be divided into two types, constant and periodic ; and that it is only men in the latter group who are likely to produce pregnancies. While agreeing that individuals differ in the range of variation of their sperm counts, we do not think this is either a clear-cut or a useful distinction.
