In brief: See a Fertility MD

Abnormal semen analysis, such as low sperm count, always needs a 2nd test 1-2 months later for confirmation.
Based on how low the count and/or sperm quality tests like motility and morphology are, we may do hormonal or genetic blood work. In some guys tablets or rarely shots can increase count. I recommend seeing a reproductive endocrinologist, and/or a urologist with an interest in male fertility.

In brief: 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 on the cause.
