Sperm count questions
cha77erbox · 30/01/2019 21:31
Not sure if I'm posting this in the right place, apologies if I'm not.
After having initial tests after 3 miscarriages and then longer periods of not conceiving we've received our results. In short, it seems that my body is doing what it should but my husband's sperm count is low, 11 million.
I just wanted to ask, as I haven't seen any numbers on any of the information online, through diet/ exercise etc what kind of improvement can be made to the count? (I like stats and numbers!!)

I think you should tell the gp because if it’s low (I believe normal is 15+) sometimes they refer them to urology, he could also have blood tests to see if he is lacking in vitamins?

15 million is classed as normal. So although 11 milllion is low it’s not hugely so.
My DH first SA was 2 million! Last SA 7 million so moving in the right direction. He takes effervescent vit c tablets every day. (1000umg I think) and wellman conception tablets. Also takes 100mg if coq10. It has made a difference but we will need ivf due to low motility and morphology.
I’ve read good reports around condsyl I think is how it is spelt if it’s just a volume issue. Not cheap thigh but cheaper than ivf!

A lot of the research on CoQ10 is surrounding sperm concentration and motility. And, you may want to look into the absorption. A water and fat-soluble form absorbs better. Good luck!

Sperm count as information alone isn't enough. My DH had a sperm count of 10 million, which was good enough according to the ivf center, and the mobility was 97% which was the highest they had ever seen. So it really also depends on the quality of the sperm.
