low sperm count

I am not sure if you are the right person to ask this, but I am quite curious.

my current boyfriend had tests done a long time ago which included a sperm test and was informed that he had a low sperm count. We are looking at having kids and wanted to know if you could over come a low-sperm count?

The test should be repeated. There may have been a transient reason for the low sperm count, e.g. a viral illness, smoking ,etc. Sperm regenerate every 3 months.
