Poor Motility, abnormal forms

Hi
Anyone with poor motility or high abnormal forms, i have to tell you about Pycnogenol.
I found out about it by accident really as we were embarking again on the fertility rollercoaster again and DH had a new sperm count done which wasnt good high abnormal forms and poor motility (they recommended (icsi)
I had read about this supplement and tests had been done on a number of men with sperm problems, after 2/3months a significant im provement was found, soooo not hanging around we got some, 200mg was suggested but as the tablets come in 40mg the ones we could buy from the health shop, dh took 2 every morning and 2 every evening, also along with his normal vits and minerals for men trying to conceive. also he stopped any alcohol though wasnt a big drinker anyway, took cool showers, no baths. and ejaculated every 3 days without fail to get rid of any build ups of abnormal forms
Diet was basically cut down to salads and jacket tates ect, just healthy options
Within 2 months the count was normal. This pycnogenol done wonders it even changed the volume. :D

TTC - 12+ years
IVF/ICSI - May 05 BFN

Sadly Lost our Beautiful Baby Boy SAM 21 wks Gest - 12th January 2006, and he was truly my miracle....

RE: Poor Motility, abnormal forms

Hi Oll

That's a wonderful turn around and lovely to hear that improvements can be seen.

I've read a little on Pcynogenol improving morphology of sperm so it certainly looks like something people suffering with the same could look into.

I think together with the diet changes, extra vitamins and lifestyle changes you've given yourself an amazing opportunity.

My DW (Lorri17) heard about this on Saturday morning so I got some from H&B on Saturday but have only just started taking it.

I have low motility and morphology as well :sadface:

Only problem with pycnogenol is the price, especially taking 200mg.

Lorri17 read somewhere that grapeseed extract is almost as good as pycnogenol so have got some of that as well to mix and match.

Anyone know of pycnogenol cheaper on the internet??
I thought a thousand million things that I could never say this morning

You may go for proanthocyanidin, it the 100% like pycongenol but much much much cheaper,, Do a google seach and u will know this fact. It also called Grapeseed extract.
