In brief: How low?

It really depends on what the actual numbers are.
As a generalization, most men with 'low' sperm counts can achieve normal chances of conception with their partners by treatments that include intrauterine insemination (iui.) for a smaller group of men where the numbers are 'extremely low, ' ivf with injection of sperm into the partner's eggs (icsi) can be very succesful.

In brief: Seek advice

Seek advice from a reproductive endocrinologist for low sperm counts.
Best strategy on your own is healthy diet and exercise, minimize stress and alcohol, vitamin supplements, and avoiding heat exposure. Couples should try regular intercourse, every other day from day 10 to day 16 for a woman with regular menstrual cycles.
