Question: I have attached my husband seman analysis report. we are planning for baby from last 1 yr..
As per report Motility is 40% and viscosity is more( liquefaction time >1hr)

How to improve sperm motility and decrease viscosity
Now he started having pumpkin seed, sunflower seed .. Even planning to take aswagandha powder to improve sperm quality.. is it OK to take

Brief Answer:
Your husband should take antioxidants and antibiotics.

Detailed Answer:

I think your husband should do a semen culture and sensitivity testing. It can show if any infection is there. He can take the required antibiotics. If culture is normal, then Also he can take doxycycline for 10 days empirically. He should also take some antioxidants for 3 months to improve motility. If he smokes or takes alcohol, tell him to stop it. The liquefaction time is high. So, get a repeat semen analysis done after 1 month of antioxidants.

If there is no improvement, you may need to undergo IUI. In IUI, motility and count is improved a lot and liquefaction is not a problem. He can take pumpkin seed , sunflower seed and ashwagandha also.

You can tell him to take flaxseed powder and sugarcane juice also.

Hope I have answered your question. feel free to ask further.

Brief Answer:
Consult a good fertility centre.

Detailed Answer:
Hi xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I think you should consult a good fertility center for your treatment. Do the semen culture at a good pathology laboratory. I think your doctor might have thought of trying few cycles of siphene and timed intercourse.

For that HSG is not needed. She might have told you about it if the treatment had not worked. But anyways, there are chances that you may require IUI. So, it is better to get it done at a good fertility center.

Hope I have answered your question.

Hi, I have been using Levazeo 25mg 3 times a day for the last 1 year and looks like the sperm motility in me has decreased over the past year. Just wanted to know if this is really due to the effect of Levazeo. I have 2.10months kid and my wife had an abortion after few months of the birth of my kid.
