Our expert says:
It is not only important to find out if you have a very low sperm count but you need to also find out how good the quality of the sperm is i.e. sperm morphology and how many percentage of the sperm are motile after a certain number of hours of assessment. So there are 3 important parameters when one ascertains how bad or good a semen quality is. What is important is the avoidance of smoking and alcohol. Also eating healthy and exercising together with the above may improve your semen analysis parameters. There are some conditions that may cause you to have an abnormal semen analysis such as the presence of a varicocele. I would suggest that you visit an urologist to ascertain if there are any correctable factors present in your particular case that may help improve that sperm count and quality. If however there are no medical conditions present and sperm count persist to be low then I would advise you to seek help from a fertility clinic so that your wife and yourself can undergo assisted reproductive techniques such as artificial insemination or in-vitro fertilization to assist you to conceive.
