Our donor has low-ish numbers - we got him tested and these were the results (and comments from the lab):<br><br>
Volume: 1.6 ml, Normal is 2-5 ml<br>
% Motile: 53% Normal is 50% and up<br>
# sperm per ml: 32M/ml Normal is 45-55 M/ml<br>
Total for this ejaculate was 51 Million<br><br>
Is there anything we can do to increase his counts?<br><br>
Thanks

I am probably going to end up taking Clomid next cycle. How did it affect you? I remember hearing that it thins your lining? Anything I can do to make up for that? Help! Basically just nervous about side effects and wanting to prepare.<br><br>
Thanks</div>

i'd like to know too, actually, if anyone has great ideas. i know a couple of things- they say vitamins, esp zinc, l-arginine, im not sure which other ones, help quite a bit. the only thing is, they can take 2-3 months to work, because i guess it takes 72 days to make a sperm. freq ejaculation is supposed to increase it too, except that, before the critical time, it should be 3-5 days since the last ejac for maximum quanitity.<br><br>
the other thing- i can not say for sure if this really helps, it's one of those things i know people have their own opinions on, like preseed, but do you know about instead cups? they keep the semen closer up against your cervix so it cant leak out. i think they are great, personally. used them for the first time this month, and im 2ww-ing now, so cant vouch for their effectiveness yet. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I think I read somewhere about maca increasing sperm count, but I'm not 100% sure. It'd be worth looking into though! Good luck. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
