Your report is not ideally normal. Change your lifestyle and food. Here I record some guidelines for your convenience: 1. Go for morning walk and jogging regularly. 2. Sleep eight to ten hours daily. 3. Avoid overworking. 4. Never smoke and keep yourself away from alcohol. 5. Never eat sour foodstuffs. 6. Drink abundance of water daily. 7. Keep away yourself from anxiety, stress and depression.
Sexologist Dr. Gomatthi Chinnaswamy's  Response
This 9.5 million is little low compared to the 20 million according to WHO standard.This can be improved with medicine which you can get with the qualified androlpgist's prescription.Added to it you can use the following life style changes-
1)have periodic sex once in alternate days to release the secreted semen to improve motility.
2)consult a local sexologist (allopath)to help you to perfom a qualty intercourse for the proper stimulation of your endocrines.
3)Follow healthy practices to improve overall halth.

Having a moderately active lifestlye. have foods rich in zinc it helps in increasing sperm count but donno abouit the motility. Generally having seafood is good. Sperm count is considered normal above 20 million and more than 50% motility.

Hi, I am 25 year old (unmarried) woman and have been observing irregular periods from past 3-4 months. Previously I used to get them on time but now they have become quite irregular. I have read about the reasons like - stress, change in your lifestyle or daily routine or extra workout. For past few months i had been having a very irregular routine like irregular sleeping hours/ eating time since I am working from home.I recently started going to gym. But now what I am worried about is that I have been told by many people that it becomes difficult to conceive for woman in her 30 s since the quality of eggs starts reducing. Is there any way to find out medically that things are functioning normally or not and how healthy am I ?

I am a 38-year-old male, 6 ft in height and 87 kgs in weight. I had been diagnosed with moderate scalp Psoriasis in late 2007, after which I went in for homeopathic treatment for nearly a year. There was a some relief and I discontinued treatment in 2009. In 2010 I developed reddish Psoriatic rashes on my chest for which I have been under no specific medication. Now in 2011, a semen sample analysis was done for me in connection with efforts for my wife's conceiving a second child. The results showed male infertility with my condition being termed Oligo Asthena Teraspermia (OAT) which is essentially a negative on all three factors of male fertility. I happened to learn that immunological disorders like Psoriasis contribute to Male infertility in at least 10% of the cases. Is this true? And should I see a connection between my two conditions?

Hi doctor, im hoping someone can help me. these topics are not easy to be open about. i have been on the 2 month injection, nur- isterate for about 2years now. During the past two months, I've used various types of drugs recreationally. Mdma, E, cocaine, lsd, shrooms and cannabis. I've noticed that my menstrual cycle is earlier, longer and heavier. I'm due for my next injection in 3 weeks and I've been bleeding for 9days.

should I be worried? what type of effect could these drugs have on the contraceptive? does it reduce the contraceptives efficacy? also, I've been told that the injection is known to promote infertility. I've been on it for 2years and I am 20 years old, should I change my contraceptive?

Hi,I am a 31 y/o currently seeing an infertility doctor for my husbands low sperm count. We know we have to do ivf/icsi and we've already paid for it. I went to my clinic for day 2 and 3 testing and they cancelled our cycle b/c they said that I have elevated FSH levels. They said it happens sometimes and that I could just be stressed. They told me to come back next cycle and try again. Could this mean I could be going through early menopause or premature ovarian failure? Are there other tests they could do before getting a definitive answer?
