I have recently had my sperm analysis done and it showed up some areas that hopefully can be improved. It has been and continues to be a stressful time for both of us as it has filled us with a lot of uncertainty. It is in my head 24/7 and i know my partner is hurting too at the results and that hurts me the most. I decided to make a start in the gym, cut down on alcohol (not that I did drink much), cut down on smoking but i am trying to give them up altogether. I have also started to take Wellman supplements daily.
My sperm results showed the following:
1) Sperm count is 18million, which I think is considered low but doctor not too worried about that.
2) Motility is 10% which is flagged as low and probably quite a problem.
3) Sperm mean forward progression is 1 and this seems to mean that they are moving but failing to progress forward.
4) The leukocytes are 25 which is quite high (reference range is 0-5). This may mean an infection but we asked GP about this and he didn't agree and felt antibiotics won't help.
So after my OH reading many very helpful posts on here, we realised that if I make some adjustments as mentioned above that things might improve. My big worry is, in relation to the gym that I read everywhere that certain things is not good for the quality of sperm such as a Jacuzzi and tight clothing. I am wondering if there is any others that i should be avoiding as I want to give us every opportunity to be a daddy and mammy.
