Getting Pregnant With Low Sperm Motility
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

Depends how low ...: In general intrauterine insemination (iui) may help with mild to moderate sperm problems but ivf with icsi (intracytoplasmic sperm injection) is better for severe sperm problems. If semen analysis shows total motile counts (tmc) of less than 10 million on more than one sa, or IUI preparations have less than 2 million 'postwash' tmc (after the sperm is prepared) on a regular basis, icsi is needed. ...Read more
Do you mean: 0.5 million? If so the chances with IUI are quite poor I'm sorry to say. That isn't to say impossible, but highly unlikely. Pregnancy rates with IUI are generally no better than 2-3% if sperm are below around 2 million. Talk seriously with your doctor, or A doctor, about ways to be successful. Good luck. ...Read more
Possibility / probability of pregnancy after a d&c? With possible low sperm count, or with normal sperm count.
Quite possible: In general, a single D&C does not provide much of an effect on becoming pregnant. So the likelihood of pregnancy after unprotected sex is essentially the same as before the D&C. Partners with lower sperm counts will of course be less likely to help conceive a child. Note that repeated D&Cs might lead to reduced fertility, if scarring results from one or more of the procedures. ...Read more
Possible: Although normal sperm morphology is important in conceiving, a low value may be compensated by higher sperm counts and increased motility. It does take 100's of millions of normal sperm to "get the job" done, you may benefit by concentrating the sample and considering doing intrauterine insemination or iui. Make sure the rest of your testing is normal. Good luck. ...Read more
Sperm count 11 milli viscosity normal pH 7.5 motility 90 % i kno my sperm countz low what's the chances of getting my wife pregnant. Is it very low?
Further tests: Best single number for interpreting the semen analysis is a total motile sperm count (tmc). Volume x count/ml * % motility = tmc. Any value over 20 million is considered adequate. A semen analysis in this range is low, but with good motility pregnancy commonly occurs. That said, a semen analysis is not a great predictor of pregnancy. Further testing of both male and female is recommended. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Motility issues are generally resolved by the IUI process of implantation. ...Read more
