Semen Analysis
Hi doc,

My hubby has been taking staminagrow tabs for the last 3 months, however the SA results showed that he has a really low sperm count, abnormal movement and traces of antibodies...he doesn't drink coffee or any caffeine stuff, nor does he smoke. What else can he take to improve his condition? We've been TTC for 2 yrs now. I'm fine on my side...He recently had a kidney infection, could this have any effect on his results??...His 28 yrs old. Thx

Dear Pert

I would suggest that your husband sees an urologist as soon as possible as there may be certain reversible causes such as varicocele. In addition, a trial of hormonal treatment such as proviron/nolvadex/gonadotropins may be considered to increase the sperm count and if this is combined with low dose cortisone, may in addition lower antibody levels and thereby improve sperm performance.
