User :   Hello Doctor, I am wriitng to you from India. we have been trying hard for last 7 years to have a child but unsusccessful. My sperm count and morphology is veried, from 1mill./ml to 30ml/ml (with support of ayurvedic medicine addyzoa plus lucopene). Recently I got semen culture done and I found that I have only 1 normal sperm and rest 99 are abnormal, total count was 1.5mill./ml. I have stopped taking any medicine from last six months. Lastly, my doctor also advised me peternia tablet. My wife is totally normal. I had vericocele of grade 3 earlier, but gradually that came down to grade 2/1, so my doctor advised me not to have sugery for this much grade and my FNAC testies was done in 2005 and the result washypospermatogenesis in left testies and normal spermatogenesis in RT. Please guide. Thanks.
