    Don't want to read and run.. but I really don't have any answers. I have no idea what my hubby's sperm count is, sorry.

    If the doc said it's fine, then I'm sure he knows what he's talking about.

    To help your OH cope with this, maybe he could start doing things to possibly improve his sperm count? There are many websites out there describing what causes low sperm count and how to possibly bring it up a bit. (Ex: https://www.lowspermcount.org/)

    My boyfriend had low counts...can't remember exactly but it was under the 20 million "normal" count. Well...it took us a year, but we did conceive naturally! So it is possible, just may take longer. :)

    It may take a bit more time... but then again, maybe not! lol. I have a friend who conceived very quick, even after the doctor told her it would take a bit longer than usual... but only took 3 mos! I've also seen other BNB members conceive even though hubby has lower count/motility/morphology.

    I would ask for for the Motility/Morphology as well... those can be more important than just the count. If they are healthy and strong swimmers- then there is a good chance one will get where it needs to be!!!

    Best of luck!!!

    im really chuffed and happy ok update
    my ohs sperm morphology is 7% the average is 4% so hes nearly double that
    his motility they put the percentage of rapid and sluggish together but ill explain both he has 40% rapid and 32% sluggish so all together his motility forward progression is 72% and the doc says average of them both is 50% together so hes up again :) his non progression is 8% and imotile is 20%
    on the letter it says viability is np which im not sure what np means but i was thinking no problem maybe his ph is normal too
    it says discosity fluid normal
    colour normal
    anti sperm and antibody is normal so all in all its all good the doc is happy with his results and even though he has 7million instead of the average 15 mil the rest of his test are really good :)

    Hello!
    Just seen your message and registered so that I could reply. My DH had an SA early December after having had a reversal and it was only 3million per ml. We don't know the motility as the sample was sent off to the clinic where we had the vr done and it was too cold and old by the time it got there! Anyway got my BFP on Wednesday, so there's hope. DH has been on lots of vitamins since the vr , but a couple of months ago we added omega 3 and siberian ginseng- who knows if this helped...

    xx
