Thanks for the query XXXXXXX

The normal semen count should be about 120,000 but 90,000 is more than enought to conceive

Your partner can definitely start taking medications. Follow the below precautions

Use boxer shorts than briefs
Avoid keeping hot objects like laptop on the groin area
Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol intake
There are no proven food products to prove semen count but please avoid mint.
Have intercourse during the ovulation period

I wish you all the best

If there is anything else I would be happy to help. Please write back
