Patient :Hi my wife and i are ttc our first child. I just had a sperm analysis done and morphology ect was fine but concentration was 3 ×10^6. My doc said it was low but we shouldnt experience any problems as everything else was good. After looking online at sperm concentration we have become very worried about my concentration. Is this extremely low and should we be stressing out over it....please help. Thanks
Thanks for the query to ATD for an opinion,
The concentration of 15 million -65 million is considered adequate for conception as in lower counts sperms can always be concentrated after sperm wash and with intrauterine insemination can be placed directly into the uterus during fertile period for conception. Also the motility is again a major factor which decides the conception chances.
There are medicines like CARNITINE TABS available which can be taken 500 mg thrice a day for 3 months to increase the counts and its effective. Presently i agree that the counts are low but it doesn't make you infertile in any manner. You may discuss the option of carnation use with your physician and continue with natural methods for conception. By god's will, you both may be rewarded.
I hope i have answered your query,
Please don't be stressed as stress itself is responsible for decreased sperm production,
Wishing you good health,
