Trying to get pregnant. Bad sperm count. Taking codine. Will sperm count improve?

Hi me and my wife are trying to get pregnant after 6 months of just having our last baby without any joy. I have been taking large amounts of Codine but have only recently just cut down to one tablet a day. How long will it take for my sperm to get better again? I'm a healthy 26 man so not sure why its taking so long to get pregnant. Sean.

Thanks for writing to us.
Since you have decreased the doses of codeine, the sperm count is likely to improve in next three months. In addition, you also need to have a healthy diet rich in minerals and vitamins for adequate nutrition.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
