pregnant by someone with a low count?

User Profile
I had unprotected sex on Nov 2 2013 I found out I was pregnant on the 27th of Nov. I just recently found out that the person said he has a low sperm count and is having doubts, my question is it possible to get c I'm sure its his for he is the only person I was with and I myself am still in shock for how fast I conceived for it was not this fast with my daughter. Just needing a peace of mind for now I am 23 weeks thank you.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
To fertilize the egg only 1 healthy sperm is needed, hence even if sperm counts are low, but presence of healthy sperms in semen is high, pregnancy chances are possible. If in doubt, you can opt to get a Paternity test. Discuss with your doctor/gynecologist for further clarification and assistance.
Take care.
