From: Impact of metabolic syndrome on the viability of human spermatozoa: a cross-sectional descriptive study in men from infertile couples

BMI MetS subgroups Abnormal SST Normal SST P1-value P2-value
BMI < 23 Non-MetS (90, 88.2%) 47 (52.2%) 43 (47.8%) 0.690 0.02
MetS (12, 11.8%) 7 (58.3%) 5 (41.7%)

  1. BMI body mass index; MetS metabolic syndrome; SST sperm survival test
  2. Values were expressed as the number (percentage)
  3. Comparison was performed between men with and without MetS (P1-value) and in BMI groups (P2-value) using the chi-square test
