Brief Answer:
Chemo can affect sperm count

Detailed Answer:
Yes, strong chemotherapy drugs do affect sperm count. Its possible that chemotherapy has negatively affected your sperm count. Sperm production may decrease during chemo treatment. Its impossible to say whether your condition is due to the chemotherapy or if your count was low before. You can however,try treatment with FERTISURE M one capsule daily for 3 months,then repeat the sperm count.If there is any improvement you may have a chance.
