My partner has a smell of onions from her vagina after sex (high acidity). Would high acid levels in vagina effect my sperm if trying to conceive?

My partner has a smell of onions from her vagina after sex (high acidity). Would high acid levels in vagina effect my sperm if trying to conceive?

Strong vaginal odor: ...is very subjective. One person's "onions" might be another's "foul", "fishy", or others. Strong odor after sex suggests bacterial vaginosis, i.e. overgrowth of mostly normal bacteria. BV is associated with abnormally low vaginal acididity, not higher. Trichomonas can cause similar odor, and BV is more common in presence of other STDs. She should see doc for exam, diagnosis, & STD testing.

How good is zeman drug to boost my husband's sperm count. We are trying to conceive.

How good is zeman drug to boost my husband's sperm count. We are trying to conceive.

Not Very: Zeman is an expensive vitamin/suppliment. If he is deficient in his diet, a vitamin/suppliment may help various areas of his health. If he is not, then it will likely have no effect. There are no studies showing zeman to be any better than any other vitamin/suppliment.

We're trying to conceive, but my partners sperm count is low. What could help us out? He's 31!

IVF/ICSI: Don't know what the sperm count was but there are many therapies to help IUI or intrauterine insemination can help with moderate abnormalities while more severe ones will benefit from injecting the sperm into the egg in the lab (IVF/ICSI)

My boyfriend and I are trying to conceive but he has a low sperm count like 200, 000, is it possible?

My boyfriend and I are trying to conceive but he has a low sperm count like 200, 000, is it possible?

Yes with help: Hi, when the sperm count is low (>14 million is normal), then chances of conception naturally are much lower. This sperm count is less than a million. If this is indeed the case, then it would be difficult to conceive naturally. I would have him test again in about a month. If still low, you should see a reproductive endocrinologist as ivf would be the treatment of choice at that level.

Vitamins: At 35, he is at the highest end of an eventual fall in male hormone levels (if he is indeed normal). A lot of times, reproductive specialists will evaluate for testosterone levels, B vitamins and gonadotropins. A trial of Carnitine of Acetyl-L-Carnitine may be beneficial.

Sperm count: You are presuming that your sperm count is low. Your partner should have a semen analysis to see if he needs to do anything. If your sperm count is normal, there isn't anything you may need. If it is abnormal, you should talk to a doctor before trying other measures.

How often u shoud have intercourse when u trying to conceive? Does the sperm really need to recharge for 2 days?

How often u shoud have intercourse when u trying to conceive? Does the sperm really need to recharge for 2 days?

See answer: To optimize your chances of conception/pregnancy, the general consensus is to have sex once every 24-48 hrs during your "fertile window" which is the day of ovulation and the preceding 5 days. Having sex more often than once every 24 hrs does have the potential to deplete a man's sperm count especially if they are borderline to begin with....but most men do not need a full 48 hrs to "recharge".

We been trying to conceive from 1 year. I have 15% motility with 54.2 million sperm count. Please guide a way to conceive in a natural way.

Keep trying: The motility is very low so that is concerning. Iui or ivf/icsi will greatly improve chances. But regular sex is important. A multivitamin is recommended as well.

Here are some...: L-arginine is considered as a "recursor" for nitic oxide, which is currently known key molecule to dilate blood vessels so it has been touted to enhance erection. More details? Go to http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/drugs-supplements/arginine/background/hrb-20058733; thereby you gain more its usage & side effects.

I m trying to conceive from 6 months. We did initial tests like sperm, ovary sonography, cyst, all normal. Kindly guide on next step to be taken?

Try the following...: Though concerning possible infertility, but no matter what can be the underlying causes, it's worthwhile to do: Try intercourse following full foreplay once daily around ovulation date; have female partner lie on bed as long as possible after ejaculation. Besides, practice healthy lifestyle without overindulgence so to energize your mental & physical ability to live on. Of course, ask Doc timely.

Pregnancy: If it has been a year of trying to get pregnant and have had no success, it may be time to see an infertility specialist. Commonly it is the male that has low sperm count, but there are many other causes in the woman as well.

Sperm motility: Yes you can....the sperm swim up through the uterus through the tubes to encounter the egg. By the time you stand up. There are thousands if not millions of sperm that have entered your uterus starting the journey. The question is are you ovulating at the time and does he have an adequate sperm count. Good lock.

My fiancee is 23 and he has just found out that he has low progesterone and motile sperm. We're trying to conceive. What does he have to do conceive?

My fiancee is 23 and he has just found out that he has low progesterone and motile sperm. We're trying to conceive. What does he have to do conceive?

See a REI specialist: You both should see a fertility specialist (rei) for help. He may benefit from weight loss, stopping smoking or aromatase inhibitor pills (if he has low testosterone with high estrogen). If you're 40 you should also get checked out for low egg supply (diminished ovarian reserve), ovulation or hormonal problems, damaged/ blocked fallopian tubes, endometriosis, and fibroids or polyps in your uterus.

Motility low: A single semen analysis is an incomplete evaluation. I recommend 2 semen analyses and a hormone profile. That said, your results show good numbers but poor motility. A sample collected offsite can have low motility. Intercourse every other day during the week of ovulation is the recommended initial course. If unsuccessful, a complete evaluation of both partners is recommended.
