My Dh had sperm issues, one result showed 2% morphology then a year later increased to 5%. I can’t really pinpoint exactly what it was or may have been that improved his sperm enough to penetrate my egg but a few theories I have thought of may have been why. THe 1st sample wasn’t a great sample, he didn’t really abstain for more than 3 days as told to do so. The 2nd analysis I made sure we didn’t do antything for about 4 days…funnily enough the same week he had his 2nd analysis I conceived..were we having sex too much?? Hubby works abroad and everytime he comes home we have sex about 3 or 4 times a day!!!, then he had withhold a few days ready for the sample and then we had sex after the sample was given (at home of course not at the hospital!!)and the sperm was full of energy??
I also noticed that I never produced much fertile cervical mucus when I was approaching ovulation. I bought some ‘sasmar Conceive Plus’ from Boots. It mimics the cervical mucus and aids sperm in helping it swim and reach that egg. If there are dry conditions then the sperm find it very difficult to swim and then die. The mucus helps sperm glide and stay alive longer. I thought I’d better buy it and use it seeing as DH’s sperm just needed a helping hand..Funnily enough I conceived the 1st time we used it!!
Make sure he is getting enought vitamin C. THis is shown to help sperm move..
