Very Scared
I am very young, only 24 and my new husband is 23. I have been married before for two years got married at 19 and was married for 2 years
we wanted to have kids really badly but after several tests it showed that he was not producing sperm only 2 million and also not good sperm
I have been married now for 5 months and we also want to have kids but I am scared he too do not produce enough sperm I have polycystic ovaries but when he comes it is only a about a teaspoon full of sperm. I dont think this is normal.

A teaspoonful is normal. It is not the amount of semen which is important but rather the number of sperm. Five months is a relatively short time to be trying. If nothing happens in the next five months, you should go for further tests. With PCOS it would be important to know if you are ovulating. If you have regular periods, then it is likely that you are.
