    Did you mean million rather than %?

    My DH has a low sperm count. He has had tests that have come back at 1.3 million, 4.4 mill and 1.8 mill. We are having IVF at the moment. Our only option was ICSI as his count was so low.

    If he has 0 count then they can sometimes extract some sperm by doing an operation.

    He will need to have at least another sperm test done though as they dont usually make a decision based on just one test. A mans sperm can be low one day and fine the next, so they shouldn't worry too much at the moment.

    Hope this helps, Michelle x

    hi

    thanks, he was upset as when he rang the docs the secretary just said your sperm has abnormalities, you have no good sperm. he then got upset and rang back wanting to talk to doc. they then called back and said the same plus he had 1 percent, mabe one million but the upset it both tests were bad.

    any advice would be good.

    I would suggest he gets himself a referral to a urologist/fertility expert asap to see what the options are

    goodluck to them xx
