Question: My Husband's sperm count after 4-5 days abstinance is 60 million , however since we are trying for a baby we try to have sex every alternate day , however his semen quantity will be very less if done alternate days , is that ok given that some of it leaks out as well and get wasted? His sex drive isnt all that great from the time we are married and I dont get wet enough so we use a lube which might also be affecting his sperm quality. Please advise as to how I can increase his sex drive and how can we stop using a lube ? My husband is 32 yrs ..

Brief Answer:
AVOID USING LUBRICANT

Detailed Answer:
hello
Thanks for choosing wwwhealthcaremagic.com
Your husband has good sperm count but motility is extremely important. Please tell how many are of motility grade 1 and 2. Quantity is important if it is less than 2 ml but lub is very likely to impair the quality of sperms so avoid using it. just relax, focus on pleasure only , not on how to get pregnant. Bring some novelty and experimentation in the way you make love.

Hello, male 33 years old. Had some blood and urine work done. All came back normal. Thyroid, glucose , WBC , RBC , Cholesterol , Kidney and Liver function. They found a small about of RBC in urine, Dr mentioned 3-5 and urine was very concentrated. Dr wants to repeat the test in a few weeks. Given everything else is normal she feels this is due to dehydration. Too much coffee and alcohol and not enough water. Told me not to worry. Does this sound about right?

I have a daughter that is 17 and runs distance races of 1 mile to 3 mile in HS. For about a year now she has continued to have probelms with regulating her Ferritin levels. Supplements are use to raise them, but once reduced the Ferritin leve drops off fairly quickly (in few months). In an April blood test her RBC count had dropped just below normal. I have read how low B12 (among other things) can impact RBC count. We have not had a B12 blood test ran yet, but with the season near year end I wanted to know if having her take a 1000 mcg would be okay in case it might help until we get a blood test in the near future. It appears that doing this for a short period of time would be unlikely to have any ill side affects.

In addition, a non-doctor athletic trainer recommended a Manganese B12 supplement at a high dosage, 100 mcg for two weeks, then 60 mcg for 3 weeks. I have read how high dosage or exposure to Manganese can have harmful side affects. Is this dosage high enough and/or long enough to cause adverse side affects?
