Frustration

Hi my husband and I have been unsuccessfully trying to conceive for just short of a year, my husband had his sperm count done a while ago and it came back low, under 1000. Has anyone successfully conceived naturally with a sperm count this low.

Gp said we need to try for a year before we will be referred to a fertility clinic

Each month is torture waiting to see if this is the month for us

Hi PinkF. Yes, it can happen, but be prepared that you may need to be referred for IVF/ICSI. You could try giving your husband a good quality multi-vitamin tablet along with some extra zinc and selenium. This might help with the way they swim, and who knows? Good luck, and I shall be thinking of you. Diane

I’ve read a lot about men taking multi vitamins, improving diet etc. Take one month at a time and try not to put too much pressure on things, as these journies can be long and straining. Wishing you the best x

It can definitely happen.

To try to improve things, my clinic suggests condensyl for men or menevit. Expensive but they contain everything needed to improve sperm quality.
