The morphology of spermatozoa in the first morning void of boys aged 12–16 years was evaluated. The results suggest that the number of cells having normal morphology increases with advancing age. Thus, the percentage of boys with greater than 45% normal sperm was 26% at the age of 12–13, increasing to 51% at the age of 15–16.
