Hi doctor,

I have a sperm count of less than 10 million per mL. The semen analysis reported as follows: Volume 3 mL, abnormal forms 0℅, motility - rapidly progressive 20℅, sluggishly progressive 20℅, non progressive10℅ and immotile 50℅, pus cells 10-12/HPF and vitality 50℅. What are the chances of mine able to conceive a child?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Since your sperm count is low and immotile sperm count is high, there is 40% to 50% chance.
  • But, definitely there is a treatment for the same. Please consult your specialist doctor.

Thank you doctor,

What type of treatment should I get? Should I take any medication or any improvement in food habits? How to improve the chances of me being a father?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • I suggest you Folic acid supplements and Iron supplements. Also, I suggest tablet Co Q (Coenzyme Q10) once daily for three months.
  • Take plenty of fluids, vegetables, fruits, less oily and spicy food.
  • Wear cotton inner and loose lowers. Meet andrologist and take his guidance for the above treatment.
  • Do get back to me with the reports if the andrologist has advised, so that I can guide you further.
  • Try for pregnancy during the fertile period of your wife. All the best and take care.

Thank you doctor,

What kind of specific report to be done from andrologist? Some are saying that my chance for naturally being a father is negligible and I have to go for IVF or ICSI or IMSI. Is that true?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • The andrologist should be the right person to guide you for further tests. Please consult an andrologist first.
  • IVF (in vitro fertilization) or other options are there as a last resort. Let us first try with basic treatment. Take care.
