Hi,

Now we are trying from donor sperm and my wife had gone 3 IUI but all are ended with negative results. As per doctors, she is perfectly fine and all test results are normal imcluding HSG.

Hello,

You have a history of low sperm count. Some food affect sperm quality like high fat dairy products (whole milk, cream, Cheese), Soy products, pesticides & BPA (present in soft drinks & packed food), trans fat & processed meat, Msg. Avoid them as they cause low sperm motility, decreased sperm count or abnormal sperm shape.

Avoid alcohol, smoking, caffeine or any other addiction. Snack on walnuts, eat fish, fruits & veggies. Take fenugreek supplements, vitamin C, D, zinc, ashwagandha is effective. Your treating doctor may give you multivitamin supplements & clomiphene citrate for better sperm count. Ge examined by a GP & get physically examined. If any pathology is detected, get it treated.

Exercise regularly, stay away from stress, stress decreases sperm count, avoid negative people, take adequate sleep. Stay away from anxiety.

After doing all this religiously you should get Sperm test done, your count should improve.

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