Low sperm count, taking Malarone before. Could this be a side effect of it ?

Had a sperm count which was very low and had been taking malarone approx 3 months before that. Could this affect the result? Also the count was 1.2. Million and the motility reading was OCC MOT OCC IMMOTILE - do you know why that is? Our doctor did not explain it well and we are very worried it will not be possible to conceive. Thank you so much

thank you for writing to HCM
Malarone really does not cause such a dramatic drop in the sperm count

You should consider doing your sperm count once more before coming to such a diagnosis

If found to be low - further tests can be done to identify the cause and what treatment can be offered

hope to have answered your query
