Welcome to ehealthforum,
The cause for the low sperm count should be established. Most often the problem is due to obstructive causes, which if resolved can improve the sperm quantity and quality. Consider visiting an Urologist/Andrologist for further evaluation and treatment for your partner. Get your thyroid levels monitored for good control. Be regular with treatment. Monitor ovulation with checking cervical mucus changes and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation and time your intercourse for having fruitful results. Keep lying still for sometime after intercourse (do not change positions after ejaculation has occurred). Put pillows under buttocks to minimize spill. Have intercourse in positions that allow for deeper penetration for high deposit of semen. Have diet with foods rich in zinc content to ensure better maturation of egg and sperms. For further evaluation and assistance, visit your gynecologist/obstetrician. You can also opt for IVF or ICSI using your egg and your partnerâs sperms (such you both remain the biological parents) if other treatment options fail.
we have done 3 IUI, IVF as well however not any positive response. gynecologist are not offering my husban with any medication to increase the quantity and quality of sperms. i have tried putting pillows under my buttocks everytime still no result. I have checked my ovulation time with the ovulation sticks and tried having intercource at the those times still no result. i am very desperate plz provide some medicines for my husband and other techniques for me to get pregnant
