Brief Answer:
No much improvement after taking drugs.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your query,

Based on the facts and reports of Semen Analysis of your husband that you have posted it appears that he has Oligoasthenospermia. He has been taking multiple herbal medications and subsequent semen analysis did not show much improvement as far as sperm count and motility is concerned.

To be honest and true there are no drugs in any faculty of medicines Ayurvedic, Homoeopathy or Alopathy that can increase sperm count or motility of sperms. There are many drugs available in market who claim to be effective in increasing sperm count and motility but none of these drugs have proved scientifically to be effective as claimed by them and none of them have been accepted by WHO.

Considering his age I would suggest you to consult qualified Infertility Specialist for detail evaluation and help for newly assisted reproductive techniques like IVF (In vitro Fertilization or Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) for conception.

Do not waste money and time in trying many drugs with hope of improvement in quantity, quality and motility of sperms. It is a futile exercise.

Hope I have answered your query, please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,
I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.
Dr.Patil.
