Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for the query.

All of your reports (blood & semen) seem to be fine except the motility of sperms which is on lower side. But it should not worry you, as your sperm count is good which will compensate for the low motility.

For pregnancy to occur apart from normal semen analysis, open tubes (wife) & regular ovulation (forming egg monthly/regular menses: wife) are required. If both are fine, there is good prognosis for pregnancy. I hope your wife is also evaluated and found to have no concerns.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if you have any other concerns.

Regards

Dear Dr.,
Thank you for your answer.All of the wife's test is normal.The Dr.prescribed only folic acid tablet for my wife and for me she has prescribed the following medicine.Dr. also told to take this medicine till my wife conceives.

Prescription:
1. Oligo capsules twice a day
2. Maxoza I

I am wondering can this be good to take this tablet or is there any alternative(natural herbal or food) to this medicine to avoid any side effects if any.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply.

Your wife can continue Folic acid tablets till conception as it will help in preventing anomalies in baby.

The tablets you are taking contain antioxidants & nutritional supplements. These are practically devoid of any side effect. So no need to hunt for herbal medicines. You can safely continue these tablets.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if you have any other concerns.
