The sperm count in your report is low,at 7.1mil. For natural conception, the sperm count should be at least 20 mil. There are some method of artificial reproductive techniques where the semen wash is done,to get good quality sperms. And used for ART. You can consult a specialist for possibilities.

how does it get so low?
Answered by Dr. Rhea Chanda 4 minutes later
Gradually with age,sperm count does become lower. Apart from that,infections also have a effect. Tight underwear,alcohol,smoking,addictions, heat etc all cause the sperm count to decrease. You can try FERTISURE M 1 tab daily for 3 months. Its a supplement that sometimes helps to increase the count.
