High Viscosity?

Hello, my DH had a SA last week, he's had a few in the past and has a very low count which at the moment is 0.1 mil per ml. We have one little boy through icsi 2 years ago and are now seeing if we have the option to try again.
The test last week showed something they hadnt mentioned before which is high viscosity. I know this means the semen maybe too thick for the sperm to swim through, but does anyone know if this can be something that can be changed?

Any suggestions would be great thanks, he's already on a load of vits to try and improve count etc and it has improved slightly as the previous sa showed just 40 sperm!

He could try taking a cough medicine containing Guaifensesin (and only this active ingredient if it has decongestants in it as well it doesn't work). Many women take it to improve the quality of their CM and theoretically it could reduce all muscous viscosity - including seminal fluid. Check with your fertility consultant first though. Good luck
