Low Morphology

Hi



Just had my results back from the doc on the Sperm analysis -



Sample Vol - 4.5ml

Motility - 75%

Count - 85 million ? (85 10x6/ml)

Normal Sperm Morphology - 2% According to the Doc is low 15% is the norm



Re Test in 4 weeks



Is there anything i can do to improve this we have been trying for close to a year now and Morphology seems to be the problem. I think the tea, wine and beer will have to go other than that i generally lead a healthy lifestyle. I did use to work with pesticides but this was about 5 years ago - however measures were in place to reduce exposure thro ppe

It doesnt sound like there are any wonder drugs to improve this but are there any Vitamins or supplements i should be taking and what quantity mg/dose

At least we know why nothing has happened after 12 months!

Thanks for your help

Hi Mr & Mrs L

I think you will be best posting your results in the `sperm scientist` thread as you will get an answer direct from someone who spends all day looking at sperm and they really know what they are talking about :) There is a link to that thread in Eeyores post above `Life in a Lab`

Most consultants will suggest taking well man type vitamins, healthy diet, no smoking or alcohol, wearing loose fitting pants and also avoiding exercise which could make you hot in your groin ie. cycling.

A re-test in 4 weeks seems quite soon, it takes approx. 3 months to produce brand new sperm so any dietry / lifestyle changes that you make now will not make a massive difference, but the healthy lifestyle and vits is really worth a try also some alterntaive therapies and herbal remedies can help too, have you had a look in holland and barrat? they have some great fertility boosting vits and pills

Please keep us posted and Good Luck
