We are ready for one more child. But having no success. Im a "fertile turtle" as my doc puts it. DH has a low sperm count, we believe. Is there anything we can do at home to increase his sperm count?

  • Vitamin C, B-12, Zinc, and EFA's. EFA's are found in foods like seeds (pumpkin,sesame,sunflower), nuts and oily fish (tuna, mackerel, herring, and salmon) All those will increase the count. Don't forget he will also need Selenium to make for good mobility.
