Improving Sperm Morphology

Hi all. OH sperm test has come back with Low morphology (he has a varicocele which may or may not be related to this). Dr has scheduled a repeat test but I was wondering what he can do in the mean time to improve it?
He already takes wellman vits, healthy diet, goes to they gym & is not over weight.

Unfortunatly his job means he drives all day and has laptop on his lap. he does drink but not to excess and only a couple of times a week.

Is there anything else we can do?

We had that issue as well - between two SAs a few months apart - the first low morph and the second good (and we've conceived after 2.5 yrs TTC!) - DH stopped smoking completely, cut caffeine, cut hot baths and drank a LOT of water (which he never did before). Dunno if these factors contributed directly - but we're very happy with the results!

Thanks for the reply. he doesn't smoke, mainly has a shower but he does drink a lot of redbull so we can start with that!

The varicocele warrants further investigation from a specialist.

Sperms are complicated things and there is much that is not understood. Simple measures like tablets are not always sufficient to improve count and forms.

Laptop should be on table rather than on his lap.

Hi Atilla, the Varicocele has been investigated by a consultant, he has been told it may or may not affect fertility and was offered an operation to correct the valve but told that it might not help the issues and that having the operation might not improve fertility...
so not that helpful really!

he uses the laptop in the car unfortunatly, he sometimes puts a cushion under it!
