Dear ...!
Many thanks for the query.

A low sperm count can be very well due to a grade III varicocele and the count can improve by a laparoscopic varicocele ligation. Masturbation from childhood is not a thing of worry and it will definitely have any bad effect on the speerm count though it is desirable to avoid masturbation for at least 3 days before submitting your semen for a semen count next time.
