Dynamics of sperm motility (sperm velocity, percentage of motility and flagellar beat frequency) and monthly variations of semen characteristics (semen volume and osmolality and sperm concentration and motility) were studied. These criteria were used in the embryology laboratory and reproductive biology in the city of Lattakia, Syria, This study showed that sperm velocity, percentage of motility and beat frequency significantly and rapidly decreased after the activation of sperm motility. To study the dynamics of sperm motility parameters, twenty permeating males were randomly selected and electronically tagged to study the variations of semen characteristics. Specially we focused on the relationship between segmentation failure in cases treated with In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) to define the characteristics using the Computer Assisted Sperm Analysis (CASA). This study compares the reference group (normal) and a group of individuals treated with IVF, who have failed the treatment where segmentation did not occur. The role of the spermatozoon in fertilization expresses itself especially through the motility criterion. Studying the motility characteristics using CASA method seems interesting in clarifying the relationship between some of the motility characteristics and the ability to fertilize in order to determine the notification in cases of IVF. This study based on the acquired information of 85 normal voluntaries as references cases. And 45 patients with segmentation failure in the Embryology-lab of Al-Andalus University for medical Sciences between 2012- 2013. The results were clear, that significant relationship and correlation between segmentation failure and motility of the sperms.
