aEx versus Go; bEx versus Mo; cGo versus Mo. *P < 0.05; **P < 0.01; ***P < 0.001. Quality groups are based on the motility values: excellent quality (>90% motile), good quality (80–89% motile), and moderate quality (<79% motile). MOT: motility; PROG: progressive motility; SOD: superoxide dismutase; CAT: catalase; ALB: albumin; GSH: glutathione; MDA: malondialdehyde; Na: Sodium; K: potassium; Fe: iron; Cu: copper, Mg: magnesium; Zn: zinc.
