Treatment for oligospermia ( low sperm count? Anyones hubby tried home remedys?
My hubby has a very low speem count, was advised to take wellman pills but another SA test showed the same results.
I was researching treatments this evening and this website came up, home remedys, wondered if anyone's hubby's have tried any home remedys and if so have the worked?
Never tried any of this.. My dh has very very low speem count also... Anywhere from 20 per sample to 600,000 per mL. The urologist says its unexplained and has not offered us any solutions. We have had to do icsi wih ivf.
Saw your post and decided to register to B & B today as it sounds like you guys are in a similar boat and nice to have a chat. We have just received my husband's 3rd SA results (very low). Have been trying to conceive for 1 year and 5 months and are due to see fertility specialist next week for first time. Have had him on all sorts of health foods and he has cut down on drinking but does not seem to have done the trick which is frustrating. Just hoping there is a solution to all of this. It's really not fun anymore!
It's defo not fun.
My hubby was told to take wellman conception as it contains every vitamin that a man should need, it didnt change his test results 1 bit.
The doctor said as he's young and doesn't smoke and doesn't drink that much, proberly changing extra things wouldn't change the results.
I'm 33 and hubby is 32 (but soon to be 33). When we started trying I thought it would be the perfect age job/lifestyle wise to have a baby but now I'm getting concerned this is going on longer than I expected! We live in London and to begin with I wondered if that was not helping things as can be quite stressful, but again, loads of people are preggers in London so I think I was just clutching at straws.
I've had him on same vitamins and it hasn't changed things either. He has never smoked but used to drink more than he should, but that has stopped and it hasn't changed the situation. Annoying!
Don't particularly like hospitals and wanted this to be a natural process but looks increasingly unlikely. How far along the line are you guys? From what I've heard things move so slowly on NHS I'm wondering if we need to think about going private....but so expensive.
We are both nearly 27.
We have a flat we rent out, bought a new house, both have jobs and just waiting for us to be complete.
We waited a year til after we got married to start trying coz we thought it would happen quick, how wrong were we.
I got my 1st appt through beginning of July and 10 days after that I had my 1st scan for pcos, then had 3 months of bloods taken, waited to go back, had day 21 28 and 35 bloods done as my cycles are long. ( I ovulate with no blocked tubes but not all the time)
It wasn't til after all this that they asked for a SA test!! Stupid! I know I would have to go through it all but at least we would have known earlier it was hubby. We was devastated and was told ivf straight away would be the answer.
So waited another 90 days hubby did another SA which the same results and have no been discharged from the hospital but waiting to hear from hammersmith now.
So it's been 9 months so far. It's felt ages but it's not really. They can't just give it to you straight away.
Hubby has a urologist appt in June as they want to try find out why his count is so low, we are hoping to get a 1st appt at hammersmith before June.
And that I'll be pregnant by the end of the year.
After your 1st appt they should give you a tough date to start ivf.
Don't give up hope.we will both get there.
I think we all clutch at straws, it's what we all do best x
We were older when we got married and still waited 1.5 years before trying, a lot of our friends got right to it! Similarly to you, I honestly thought it would just happen, 12 months of trying max. We didn't feel ready straight away but at least we would have known there was an issue sooner.
I know what you mean about time flying, even if the prospect of waiting a number of months seems ages at the time. It must be reassuring to know that you are very likely to pregnant by the end of the year. That's not that far away and exciting. Let's keep each other updated on progress, fingers crossed x
It's all what ifs my hubby says.
I said do you wish we had of tried earlier, he wasn't ready at the time coz he wanted to be in a house and we hadn't got ours yet.
So if we had of fallen straight away we wouldn't have been able to afford the house, so having a baby at that time wasn't an option.
Private ivf is very expensive but have you thought about egg donation?
If you donate eggs you get ivf for yourself for free in a lot of hospitals. As they are desperate for eggs.
I have thought about it and would consider it In the future. hubby isn't too keen as if 1 of your eggs turns into a baby, at 18 they can ask who the egg donnar was, and you just don't know complications it may cause you, but I'd love to help women who don't ovulate.
Yes defo keep me informed it will be lovely to keep chatting x
