    Hey Faye

    How many SA's has your DH had?
    Did the GP say if there was room for possible improvement?

    Don't rule out using his :spermy: just yet as if they can find 1 for IVF then they will use it hun! :hugs:

    Is there anything he can do to help his sperm count? Diet, exercise? Sorry if that is a silly question...

    Oh sorry hun - they do say long distance cycling isn't great and neither is heat.

    What about getting him to take Maca? that is meant to improve count/motility/morphology? Also 1000mg of vit c and zinc are good for :spermy: All clinics will recommend 2 tests to get an accurate account and then 2 tests after the changes have been made 6 weeks later.

    You might be surprised what the FS can offer you chick. There might be other options and with ICSI if they can find 1 :spermy: they can do the necessary. :hug:

    Also, they're a bit expensive but the Zita West male fertility supplements are really good - it's a multi vit and includes L-Arginine, L-Carnitine, Lysine, Zinc, Selenium which are all supposed to be good for sperm. It also includes a few other vits. As well as all this, my OH takes Tribulus Terrestris which is supposed to help and he takes a vitamin B-Complex and Vitamin C - oh and Flaxseed Oil too.

    All of these are supposed to help and would be worth a try.

    My OH had a borderline sperm count with slightly low motility and is being re-tested next week so I'll let you know if there's been any improvement.

    Good luck

    One thing i would say hun is get him on the pills now as it takes 3 months to see a realistic change so by the time you get your appt at the FS, things could definitely be looking up! :hugs:

    Hi Faye, I would have the DH stop cycling for 3 months and redo test. But if you feel you can't wait, see a specialist to see what they can do for you both.

    I think you should get your DH to try maca. If that doesn't work ICSI probably will. I'm not sure about the age restrictions - something tells me that the local trusts make up their own rules anyway.
