Low sperm count
I have a low sperm count and also too many abnormal sperms. We are trying to conceive the natural way as far as possible. What are the alternative methods for us given my condition.
I am also informed that I should consume folic acid and zinc to remedy my condition and give up smoking. Will giving up smoking help? I smoke about 10 - 12 cigarettes a week.
Waht can I do to remedy this condition?

Dear HK

The advise that you have been given is correct and the supplementation is approriate. However, I do not believe that smoking is a major contributory factor in your case as the quantity smoked is not excessive.
I would like to have more information on the actual sperm count parameters and the morphology parameters to give you a more educated and informative response.
