5 Years and no Baby!
Dear Dr Cassim

My husband (34) & I (31) have been trying for 5 years and have gone through ALL the medthods & emotions possible. My gynae says there's nothing wrong with my cycles, ovulation etc. My husband has been tested twice and has slow & immature sperm. He is currently trying Sperm Aid and I'm taking Stamino Grow and Spirulina. Should we try anything else to supplement our fertility? Our very last option is IVF but we would very much like to conceive naturally and hopefully safe some money.

dear Luzelle

Unfortunately, without the actual figures of the spermiogram available to me I am unable to give you a very accurate opinion as to whether natural conception is at all possible . There is no harm done in using Stamina Gro, Spirulina and sperm aid. However, if the sperm parameters are extremely poor, then these supplements will make very little difference and the inevitable treatment of IVF may become necessary.
