Brief Answer: There are few options Detailed Answer: Hi, I have gone through your query. Since your sperm count and semen quantity is low, it is usually suggested to increase the volume. Normal semen volume range from 2 to 5 ml per ejaculate. On abstaining for a long time the sperm counts within the semen may increase but the semen volume actually does not vary much from before. Antioxidants can be taken to prevent the lowering counts if there is no underlying pathology. L-carnitine significantly increased the semen volume. Combination of l-arginine aspartate and Pycnogenol Treatment increased significantly the semen volume. For Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI), Best way to collect sperm is by ejaculation in a sterile container. After which they are washed and procedure of IUI is followed. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
