What is the minimum percentage required for motility to do the IUI ?

Hello Doctor, I am 25, and my husband age is 26. We are under follicular study. My Periods cycle is regular. My husband took the Semen test on November. By that time his sperm count was less, but his motility was 55%. Doctor prescribed him Cap-Q-Gold tablets. He took the semen test on December month. His sperm count got increased but now his motility is 10% only. Doctor is going to do IUI for this month. But I heard if his motility is less, doctor won t do the IUI. Is that True? What is the minimum percentage required for motility to do the IUI?

Dear Ayshwarya

I believe you may not have to go in for IUI as there are many potent herbal medicines that offer very good results. You should start with cap addyzoa [ charak ] one tds and give him milk with dry dates boiled in it and get semen analysis done after fifteen days. More changes can be made as per need.

IUI WITH less motile sperms is not effective.so u must try for a good medication for good quality spermtogenesis.kindly go for CLASS motality test
(grade-1,2,3,4).it is more accurate test for it
there are some dietary supplements for good spermategenesis
like soy isolated protein powder 25-30 gm and vitamin E with selenium.u also can try homeopathic medicine.
