There is always a chance that a good one can get up there.  If not, you can get the sperm directly inserted into the uterus.  At least he has some that may be viable.  IUI is starting to get cheaper.  Even if you have to use artificial means, at least there is hope.

Ummmm... why the heck is he just telling you this NOW? I mean, to me that is something that should be revealed at the beginning of a serious relationship or at the very least when a couple starts TTC....

That aside (and boy would I pizzed and have trouble putting it aside) I would get him into a doctor and then get a referral to a fertility specialists if needed.

Okay, I have NO idea if this will help or not, but my DH and I tried for over a year to get preggo, and I went "crazy" lol...I started taking folic acid, and made him take it to, and I started having him take "Mega Man" vitamins from GNC...it had most of what men need for healthy reproduction (granted this was 9 years ago), anyway, after a few months of that, we both got tested and he had "more swimmers than normal" according to our doctor...LOL...I don't know if it was the vitamins or not, or what his count was before that...but maybe that will help??  It's amazing the things they can do now, so hopefully one way or another you two will be expecting a beautiful baby one day soon!  Best of luck, and LOTS of baby dust to you!

Here's something for your man to try- have him take Vitamin E. It's supposed to be like 400 IU or whatever the dosage rating is. It's supposed to help make those swimmers stronger. :0) He should take a daily vitamin, which has E in it, and I'd just have him take some supplements along with it. You should also be taking vitamins, preferably prenatal. I would do whatever I could to make my "entry way" more accepting of what swimmers DO come in. Good luck momma.

I dont understand why u are just finding this out!  But call your primary doctor and get a referral to a fertility specialist.  I mean he should have told you before you started even think about ttc!  But good Luck!  I'll send some baby wishes ur way!
