Infertility

Sperm motility

02/10/2010

Question:

I am unable to understand the cause of low sperm count & its motility. I have had a varecosele surgery & am taking all necessary precautions (eg.loose briefs,avoiding tights, smoking,alcohol,etc..) & am also taking zinc + Vitamin E,C. I am 40 yrs & healthy otherwise. Any other way around.. Please suggest..

Answer:

Treatment of varicocele does not guaranty recovery of sperm to its potential full fertility power. You are doing all that was needed to be done. Some urologists suggest addition of Clomid or HCG may also be beneficial. The ultimate treatment, provided there is no female obstacles, is artificial insemination.
