Possibility / probability of pregnancy after a d&c? With possible low sperm count, or with normal sperm count.

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

3rd round of Clomid (clomiphene)  starting feb 15 (day5-7)  I am now 4 days late, my husband has low sperm volume and ph! what are my chances of pregnancy ?

Here are some...: It's unclear who used Clomid, (clomiphene) you or your hubby, and for what purposes. Since you've started off the care for infertility with the experts, it's good ideas to refer similar questions to the treating doc timely. Online 400-letter space can not suffice to address the related details. As to pregnancy, do HPT in a wk after missing period & repeat it in another wk if the first is (-) & still in doubt. ...Read more

How likely it is to cause pregnancy if a girl which massages me (Standing all time) took a bit of sperm with her finger and inserts it? high/low risk?

Sperm + egg: In order to get pregnant sperm must be able to reach the egg. Vaginal intercourse is the most efficient way to do this. Based on what you describe it is theoretically possible the sperm was deposited in her vaginal although this is a very inefficient way to try and get pregnant. The two of you should discuss your plans and if you do not want to have a baby together use proper precautions. ...Read more

If it takes just 1 sperm to fertile egg, y r men with low sperm count infertile. Does precum really cause pregnancy?

If it takes just 1 sperm to fertile egg, y r men with low sperm count infertile. Does precum really cause pregnancy?

Odds ratio: Sperm have to swim upstream the equivalent of a human swimming 8 miles. Not all of them will survive. The odds are better of 1 making the journey if there are millions to start. Pre ejaculatory fluid can contain enough sperm per drop so one might make it to the egg. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more

Normal testosterone level but low sperm count and motility is there any chance of pregnancy?

Normal testosterone level but low sperm count and motility is there any chance of  pregnancy?

S/he may first try injecting sperm into the uterine cavity then recommend in vitro fertization. ...Read more
