Here is a link to the vitamins below for you that have worked with improving my DH's motility and count!! I have him on a higher does that the instruction to help improve his numbers even more, he takes 3 instead of 2 a day!! I would recommend taking 3 to 4 a day if there is a short period of time and you need to get the numers up quickly or even just for better results!!

The first time he did an SA after his reversal surgery he had less than 5 million count and only 36% motility and we weren't even eligile for IUI because his sperm count was too low. He started taing the vitamins about a month before his second SA at the 3 a day dose and he had 6.5million sperm and 65% motility, so it was a big improvement and we became eligible to qualify to do IUI!!!

I love this thread and it makes me feel a little better!

We have been TTC for 15th months. All of my tests came back normal, but hubby's SA was overall good except for his morphology which was 0% we were told our best option is IVF with ICSI. He is going to retake the test next month, but I am just so upset!! ARGH!!!! We have an appointment with the endocrinologist in January!

I am so glad I found this thread! My DH has low morphology at 1-2% and I get really down thinking it might never happen for us. Thank you for this thread! It reminds me that we are still early in our journey, which is far from over!

Don't Lose Hope!


Hi everyone! I just want to encourage everyone that struggles with MFI with my story. We found out in October that DH had low count and motility (only 6.2 million and 17% motility) at that point we'd been doing Clomid rounds with our OBGYN (which wasn't really going well either, I only O'd once during the three rounds we took it) If I don't take fertility meds, I have anovulatory cycles. So, DH's MFI really compounded our problems!

After discovering we had MFI, my OBGYN referred us to an RE. I felt pretty down after doing research on MFI and reading everywhere that there's really nothing you can do. I did read though about Fertilaid for Men. I did tons of reasearch and everywhere I read it got rave reviews. So, I decided, hey what do we have to lose?

DH started taking Fertilaid for Men, CountBoost, and MotilityBoost in mid-October. In mid-November we started our first round of Femara and on December 1 we did our first IUI. (6 weeks after starting the Fertilaid) DH went early to drop off his sample and we went to breakfast, feeling pretty anxious. We were ready to walk in there and hear the worst!

When we got there my RE came in and shared the good news, DH's count had gone up to 13 million and his motility was up to 50%!!!! After washing the sperm we were left with 5 million very healthy sperm.

We were elated and our RE told us with numbers like that we had a very good chance of getting pregnant within 3 rounds of IUI. We couldn't believe the results we saw in just 6 weeks, I couldn't imagine what another six weeks would do!

To our surprise, we found out last week (Dec. 10) that I'm pregnant!!! We were in shock. The only thing I can attribute our success to was the Fertilaid, we hadn't really changed anything else about our lifestyle.

I hope this offers all of you ladies hope, I know when we first found out about DH's MFI I thought that was the end, I felt so incredibly hopeless. There are solutions though, don't listen to the negative people out there that say you have no hope!!

I'm praying that everyone who struggles with male factor their BFPs very soon!!!

wonderful thread!

Thank you for sharing your positive results with Fertilaid. My DH was on wellmen conception for almost a year but unfortunately his count was still depressingly low at less than 3 million, recently I put him on Fertilaid for Men and CountBoost, really hoping this can make a difference.

it took me over a year to persuade my DH to take supplements, at first he started taking them a couple of times a week and then gradually moved to taking them almost every day. but it's pretty much me driving the process. unless I get him at the right moment ready with the supplements and a glass of water (right temperature mind you otherwise not a chance) I am now trying to get him to do acupuncture but I do not think he will ever be persuaded
