I dont think so: There is no medicine that you can take that increase sperm production and chance for pregnancy in female partner. Surgery for varicocele is not proven to improve pregnancy rate. If oligospermia is due to obstruction a urologist may be able to surgically correct it.

I respectfully disagree here. Treating/removing pre-testicular causes of oligospermia can result in improvement in semen parameters. Relieving obstruction improves sperm counts too. To a degree, oligospermia, depending on the cause, can certainly be improved by identifying the cause, and effectively treating it with medications, behavioral modifications, and in some instances, surgery.
