Brief Answer: No drugs proved to increase sperm count. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have Oligozooasthenospermia meaning there by low sperm count and less % of active motile sperms. Truly speaking there are no drugs in modern medicine fraternity proved to be effective to increase the sperm count. So many Herbal and Ayurvedic drugs are available in the market who claim to be effective to increase sperm count however there are no scientific data to accept their claim. Following general measures help to improve sperm count. 1) Practice regular exercise for 45 minutes followed by meditation for 1/2 an hour in the morning. 2) Take high protein diet rich in vegetables and fruits and Vitamin A,C,D,E.and Zinc 3)Take anti oxidants like Almonds 5-6 everyday.. 4) Avoid alcohol and smoking.. Please consult qualified infertility specialist for clinical evaluation and get following investigations done to rule out any of the factors being the cause of low sperm count. 1) Varicocele 2) Low testosterone levels in blood. 3) Thyroid disease. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me I shall be happy to help you . Thanks and Regards. Dr.Patil. 3) Diabetes

Two years ago I had RAI Therapy 11 mCi for Graves desease. 3 months later I was euthyroid and felt fine. My doctor told me do have control of thyroid function for 3 months . 2 months later I was in a very bad condition . MY TSH was 75 . During begining of levothyroxin therapy I started to feel severe paresthesias and neuropatic pain.Now I am euthyroid on levothyroxin therapy , but diagnosed with small fiber polyneuropaty. I am very sick and have constant generalised neuropathic pain. Du you have experience what happens with patients after RAI therapy without levothyroxine supplementation in time.

I am a Ph.D. chemist, ~50, have been taking thyroid medication since 1995, Since switching from T4 only to T3/T4 (25ug/75ug), I have seen a big improvement in cognition and then on switching to T3 (50ug) only (done this myself for just the past 3 days see and even better improvement when it comes to my attention span. In addition, I take meds for depression & anxiety. I have not experienced any unpleasant side effects of T3 only besides a little diarrhea--is this OK? ( I think somehow, my body has a greatly diminished ability to covert T4 to T3).
