Husband with low sperm count. Can we still conceive naturally?


Hi Ladies!
My husband has low sperm count and low motility (they move slow) The fertility Doctor said we should have IVF.
For 2 months now my husband has been taking Fertility Blend which is supposed to help the sperm move better and to help sperm production...

Have any of you had your husband have low count & low motility but was still able to conceive on your own? Or know of anyone that has? Just looking for some hope! IVF is so expensive for us right now!

Thank you!

Same here Hun! Conceiving naturally didn't happen. I had my husband on fertile aid for men and it barely made a difference. He wason it or a lng time too. We ended up doing IVF!

greeneyes0279- Thank you for the reply! My OB Doctor said she has had patients who conceived naturally with Fertility Blend.. so i'm hoping. He hasnt been on it for that long =(
So frustrating. We would do IVF in a heart beat, if we had the money to do that! Only thing stopping us from IVF right now is the funds for it! And our Doctor said they dont do payment plans anymore! Which is even more frustrating.

Me and my fiance started ttc in july 2011. Had 2 chemicals last year then a 5+2 miscarriage in april this year. We had tests and fiance has low sperm count and motility. We was also told we needed ivf but we'd never afford it. So we carried on ntnp but getting on with our lives. To our shock we got a natural bfp 3 days after my af was due. We had a scan at 9 weeks and everything is going perfectly. It is possible but unfortunately it takes time. I hope this gives you some hope. Good luck on your journey.

Husband was diagnosed with low count and very low motility five years ago. We had been trying for years, and also could not afford IVF. Well, amazing a couple months after that, i got pregnant. While We lost that first pregnancy, I got pregnant with my son right after that loss. Then my second son two years later. And now a surprise third! So the old saying "it only takes one!" is very true!

Yeah, ivf is so expensive. Hope you conceive naturally.

I had a friend whose husband had low count. I'm not sure what they tried, but they did see specialists (I know not ivf). After 3 years without success, they started looking into adoption and she got pregnant naturally. Now she has two handsome little boys!!
