Semen from 28 healthy volunteers was assessed for basic semen measure and percent of abnormal morphologic forms every 2 weeks for 6 months. Concurrent self-reports were obtained on abstinence, frequency of ejaculation, health behavior and status, experienced stress, social support, and life events. A single assessment of characteristic adaptability (ego resiliency) also was obtained. Significant between-subject positive correlations were reported among selected semen measures, abstinence, and ego-resiliency. Stress was correlated negatively with semen measures of volume and percent normal morphologic forms.
