Therapy For Low Sperm Counts
By Sam Thatcher, MD, Ph.D.

Sam Thatcher, MD, Ph.D.Q. My husband has a very low sperm count. Luckily, we were able to conceive naturally last winter. Do you have any suggestions to increase our chances of this happening again in the future. This pregnancy took 6 years to come even with 2 AI attempts.

A. I might suggest cycle tracking with basal body temperature (BBT) and ovulation prediction kits (OPK). Recent research has shown that properly timed intrauterine insemination (IUI) can also be of value. Your chances of pregnancy after assisted reproduction (in vitro fertilization IVF with sperm injection ICSI) may be excellent, but this is a completely different story.
