Dear Weja

It appears that your infertility is certainly related to a severe male factor problem. The presence of a very low sperm count and in addition only 2% normal forms indicates a low chance of a spontaneous pregnancy. The possibility of your requiring assisted reproductive techniques is very high. Most medications containing multi-vitamins and nutrients have been proposed however none of them have been scientifically proven to improve semen analysis parameters or pregnancy rates. I would suggest that you see an urologist to ascertain that there are no conditions present that may be contributing to the low sperm count and quality.
