He has had a second semen analysis, and we got the results back...his count went from 5mil to 36mil! unfortunately he still has only 25% "normal" sperm, so he's probably going to have to go through more tests. blood tests show testosterone is slightly low "but not too bad". Everything else is normal. His total semen amount also doubled. Hes been excersizing a lot more, and taking l-carnitine suppliments along with his vitamins...I'm hoping if he keeps it up things will improve even more?
I know the 25% isn't good, and his doctor is getting a second opinion before he takes any action. Is there anything he can take at home to make his sperm heathier?View Thread
My husband's urology appointment was a couple days ago, and the doc said everything checks out physically. He's scheduled for a hormone panel and another semen analysis to confirm LSC. The doc suspects he may need to go on Clomid. If clomid helps boost his SC, would it be permanently corrected or would he have to go on it every time we want a baby?View Thread
About a month ago my husband was diagnosed with low sperm count (around 5 million per ml) and poor morphology and motlity. He goes to see a urologist next month to find out the cause and if it can be helped. He is now taking vitamins and suppliments that are supposed to help with that kind of thing. I am healthy and have a normal cycle...but is there anything more I can do for my part to increase our chances of becoming pregnant?
PS~ we do have children, but my last 2 took 3 years to concieve (I lost my last one due to miscarriage)View Thread
