Hi!

We do have these two links on Male Fertility: 

My sister's husband had low count and low motility, too, however, and he was told to try the following to help increase his count and motility:

  • Eat a healthy diet rich in antioxidants
  • Lose weight
  • Stop smoking & drinking alcohol
  • Increase physical activity
  • Stay cool (he had to switch from boxers to loose fitting briefs to help keep cool, as well as avoid hot tubs or hot baths, and keep the laptop off his lap)
  • Stop using lubricants, including saliva, during sex (or use Pre-Seed if lubes are needed)
  • Avoid stress

He was also told that abstaining from sex, including masturbation, for a week or two prior to my sister's ovulation window would increase the odds of good production when it's time to have sex during the fertility window.

Quoting ginger_snap99: I would have liked to see a link on this list for male infertility problems. I've had all my tests done and I do have mild pcos but my eggs & follicles are good. So we had hubby tested, low count & low motility. Did 3 rounds of failed IUI'S. Now what? Can't afford IVF!
