(Sious Falls, SD)
Here is the expanded version of my husband's semen analysis:
Count: 214 million/mL
Volume: 2.5 mL
Progressive motility: 3 (on a 0-4 scale)
Strict morphology: 11%
Since these results, he has started taking 50 mg Pycnogenol, multivitamin (every other day) and fish oil.
He also takes Amoxicillin every day for acne.
Do you think that the amoxicillin could be causing any problems (he's resistant to stopping it)? Are there any other supplements he should take or ways to improve the morphology or do you think his numbers should be adequate since all the other parameters are so good? Acupuncture for him would be more difficult because of his work schedule and the driving distance, but if you think it could help, perhaps he could at least go on occasion and take herbs that might help.
We still have to run a few more tests on me, but everything so far as been normal. I do ovulate, so I'm hoping we have a good chance of having it happen naturally. (I did get pregnant once before but miscarried.) I'm hoping the acupuncture/herbs will help correct any subtle imbalances I might have and that my husband is producing enough good sperm to get me pregnant.
Thank you so much!
