A 22-year-old female asked:

If the female is taking clomid (clomiphene) and the male has low sperm count can the female still get pregnant?

Yes, but: If the male has a low sperm count, you probably want to do an intrauterine insemination to spin down the sperm, especially if you are going through the effort of clomid (clomiphene). You could learn alot from my book tick tock, which i wrote to help people facing the scary world of fertility treatments.
