Lifestyle Changes: Avoid tobacco, marijuana and excess alcohol. Eat a well balanced diet and a male multivitamin with antioxidants won't hurt either. However, if you have low counts you should also be evaluated by a professional to make sure nothing is wrong structurally, hormonally and sometimes genetically. Sometimes men can use Clomid (clomiphene) to boost their counts but it depends in the cause.

Avoid Bad stuff : Alcohol, smoking and drugs can decraese sperm count.
Smoking tobacco not only to decrease the quality of a woman’s eggs, but it is thought to reduce a man’s sperm count. Illicit drugs like Cocaine and marijuana have been demonstrated to affect sperm count and even motility.
If you have a varicocele, fixing it can lead to improved motility.
