hello
thank you for writing in to HCM

A user of meth - if he is used to inhaling the drug or injecting the same - there might a lower sperm count More often the problem is with sexual function

The semen analysis may probably a lower motility in few of the past users

However it will be advised appropriately after the preliminary screening is done and an initial report is obtained

wish you all the best

So then most likely the meth did not hurt his sperm?

hello again

As I mentioned it can affect the sperm motility
We also need to keep in mind if there are other causes present for altered sperm parameters
