Hi,

Low sperm count is not an obstacle for conception as long as there are some viable sperms, it may delay but not prevent pregnancy. Maythesnia gratis has specific effect on sperm count, consider to avoid specific maneuvers that may reflexively delay pregnancy like nipple stimulation before or during sex, as it increases prolactin level and may inhibit ovulation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Melek, Cardiologist
