I heard this too. My dh had a root canal recently. I was told that the infection can still be present because they keep the tooth in the mouth. I have asked him if he was willing to have it removed. No sure if he will at this point.
Hope the removal helps your hubby as well!!!

I am late for AF & having symptoms but not getting my hopes up .
MrsCompas so sorry about your miscarriage. How are you feeling? When is your next iui? Sending the stickiest kind of baby dust to you.*
Oursecret have u managed to rearrange your appointment? Glad your dh is getting on board with lifestyle changes. We have seen a lot of improvement with vitamins and cutting down on caffeine. My dh was pretty healthy before ttc and we didn't think there was much we could do to *improve things but he did like his cups of tea and the odd cappuccino at the office.*
Lisap oh exciting.. Have u tested. It would be great to get a bfp on this thread. glad to see improvement in count and motility. Is there anything that can be done to improve volume? Does abstaining help?
Lyns sorry u got your hopes up last month but looks like you had a nice long leutal phase which is only a good thing.**when was your dh's last sample? Are you planning on getting another one? enjoy your holiday
Georgiebell thanks for posting those articles, very reassuring.*
Redcolabottle results have def improved. I know it's so hard to interpret at times. All parameters look good apart from total count. I Think guidelines state that total count should be more than 40 mill but def in right direction and not too far off.*
Regalpeas hope the dental work improves those swimmers.*
We had a consultation at a fertility clinic last night. This was mainly because I often have irregular bleeding and was getting a bit stressed with Nhs waiting times. Anyway part of the consultation involved dh providing another sperm sample and we have seen some more improvement in count and morphology but reduction in motility.
Conc per ml 43 mil (previously been 1 million, 14 million, 33 million)
Morph 10%(previously been 5% and 2%)
motility 36% (previous been 17% and 50%)
So ladies sperm does vary and it really appears that vitamins can make a difference (dh taking multi vit, wellman, macca, zinc and vit c).
Dreaminhopin - thank you for your thoughts. I'm feeling much better as I know my 2nd IUI is coming up soon! I'm just currently on a BCP break and I have 12 pills to go and once I get my period we start IUI.
Congratulations on that 14 million and 33 million count!!! Goes to show you that the count can vary. YAY for that!!! I hope we get a big count on our second IUI. MY DH is currently taking USANA vitamins, Zinc, CoEnzymeQ10, VitaminC, Selenium and is working out regularly to maintain a healthy weight. I am so proud of him. He's definitely working as hard as I am to make this work and puts up with my moodiness that all of the hormonal pills bring me.
Looks like I'm the only one awake this Sunday morning. Hope you had a good
dreaminghopin, I got a letter through from the hospital (NHS) confirming a new appointment time at the end of June yesterday. I didn't get a choice on appointment times, they've just booked me in. Have to admit that we are now looking into the private route considering the muck up with appointments last time.
Well done to you and your hubby for getting his count up, that's impressive! And to everyone else who has managed to work to get some improvement.
We are still trying our best too, but it does get a bit boring doesn't it Some people are so lucky, a couple of months ttc and they are there and can move on. Feeling in limbo land at the moment x
Hi girls, hope u don't mind me joining... My Hubby and I been ttc for nearly 2 yrs now, very low sperm count (3million) n motility low too so after much searching and trying different 'wonder tablets' I've kinda accepted it isn't going to happen naturally for us although every month I do still pray for a miracle. We have now had our first icsi appt thru nhs and waiting time is approx another 17 months, at the moment I'm feelin so down, terrified it's never going to be us, another close friend has just gotten pregnant (1st month tryin) n I can feel myself drifting away from my friends thru no fault of theirs simply because it gets harder n harder to deal with our own personal heartache each time. If I was a child I'd be lying on floor stamping feet just now - IT'S NOT FAIR! Hope u all don't mind me ventin here from time to time, my husband is wonderful but I don't like him to see me gettin too upset as I feel he blames himself and that's the last thing I want xx
