Question: Are erection problems associated with low sperm count/motility?
My fiancee has erection problems sometimes - not always - even though he is only 26 years old, and we are trying for a baby the last 4 months without success. I know it is not a long time trying however i would like to know if erection problems are associated at all with low sperm count/motility? We didn't do any sperm tests yet.

Hi,

Erectile Dysfunction is not associated with low sperm count.

Please get semen analysis done to identify if the sperm count is normal.

Is he able to insert inside you ? Why do you say he has erectile dysfunction ?

Hello,

Thanks a lot for your reply. He has erection problems about 50% of times and dicficulties ejaculating many times. However the other 50% he is having normal erection and ejaculation.
I just thought that these disfunctions might somehow associated with low sperm count/quality.

Thank you!
