DH has low everything in regards to sperm - what can we do?

Postby kruddlopez » Wed Aug 09, 2017 7:56 am

Hi ladies!
It has been about 4 years since I've been to TWW - you ladies were amazing before and right now DH and I are really needing all the advice/support we can get! Little back story - we have a son (biologically mine), DH legally adopted him - so I have had 1 successful birth prior to marriage. We have been TTC #2 for 2 years on our own. Finally about 3 months ago I told DH maybe it was time to get things checked out, so we did - DH saw my fertility Dr in Houston, and we are in the process of actually accepting the results.

We found out DH has sperm issues every way around it. Low sperm count (.5 mil) so not even 1 million! Low motility of the .5 he does have, low morphology, unfavorable pH - you name it, it came back bad. I am going to post the results encase anyone is seeing something we are not! I have was also checked out and I am 100% clear to get pregnant physically, normal periods, ovulating every month, 31 day cycle, ovaries look good, can pretty much tell you exactly when I am ovulating, very in tune with my body. But I feel like if I expect DH to make some lifestyle changes, I am going to be right there with him doing it too!

So with all that being sad, we are not giving up hope - we both believe in the power of God more than medicine, but we definitely want to do everything possible to increase our chances!

We have an appointment next week with fertility Dr - but I would love to hear stories/advice/help/anything you ladies have that might help us, Dr's know a lot but I've found that sometimes another human being who has been through this can relate more! Today I am going raid the vitamin store - starting with pre-natals for me, Zinc & Vitamin C for DH - he is already taking Maca in high doses daily - I think now that the initial shock has wore off for us we are both ready to throw everything we have at this.

:) Hopeful!

I haven't braved the fertility specialist yet, but have you checked out FertilAid or Fertility Blend for men yet? I just ordered both the men and women varieties of FertilAid in hopes of it helping. They have great reviews, and also have specific additional men's supplements to address issues like low count.
