Question: I am diagnosed with low motility.Count is 30ml. Age 33, non smoker and occassional drinker, Vegetarian. Seeking your advice
Answered by Dr. Rajesh Lakhanpaul 22 hours later

In ayurveda there is a branch that deals with all problems related to sex and this is called vajikaran. We have number of herbs which have proven efficiency to increase the count.

From your mail the extent of motility cannot be judged as you have mentioned the volume. The main thing is the percentage of motile, sluggish and dead sperms.

Above this we give importance to presence of pus cells in semen if any as this can be the sole factor to kill sperms leading to more dead and less motile sperms. It will be better if you mail detailed report of your semen analysis. It is appreciable that you have no addiction; this will be a boon for quick cure.

Diabetes and hypertension or use of any drug on regular basis, also lead to this problem.

There are herbs like musli shatawari ashwagandha kaunch kesar salam panja salam mishri shilajit and so on which are widely used.

The exact compounds or medicines can be advised after a detailed examination.

I have gone through your report.

Here are my suggestions.

You may try Shatawari kalp granules in milk, Tab. Gandhak rasayan, Cap. Addyzoa, Musli pak. Please consult your ayurveda specialist before starting these.

Get a repeat semen analysis done again after a month and report back.

Dear Sir, Please let me know about the dosage, diet and duration.
Answered by Dr. Rajesh Lakhanpaul 39 minutes later
Hi and thanks again,

I understand your concern. But it is difficult to specify dosage without physically examining and evaluation the patient. In ayurveda we have to access the patient before making recommendations. So any recommendation authoritatively is not possible without examination of the patient. Further the medications needs to be modified after a month following reexamination.

Regarding diet, avoid spicy stale and heavy meals; be regular with diet time; have lot of fruits; you can boil dried dates in milk and have it once a day. No addition is permitted.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have any more concerns.
And if all your queries are answered, please close this discussion.

Wish you good health.

Dr. Rajesh Lakhanpaul
