Welcome to health care magic forum
instead of swim up preparation, use density gradient or double density gradient method that will improve your sperm concentration more than swim up method.

At 2009 my wife go for a normal check-up bec she is Pregnacy for 34week+ and the doctor say the baby was very health but not more than 3days the baby stillborn so we ask the doctor why suddenly the Baby will pass away when he say it was health .. So while waiting for the Baby report,my wife go for a check for herself and everything is good and we meet the doctor and ask again why the baby suddenly pass away since there have the report already and he say dun know WHY cos nothing wrong at all so He tell us that we are unlucky that the answer he give.

So after trying for about 2years my wife pregnacy again so we are very happy but the Baby again stillborn at about 3month+ and all the Hope have gone again.. So both of us do a full body check, end up the doctor find out my sperm count less. So now i eveyday eat Zinc, multi-Vitamin and Anlene milk jus to hope that i can improve my sperm count cos we really hope to have a baby. I know i make a big misstake of drinking too much coke, mostly i drink 1.5L of coke everyday. Than this few day i read the news and find out that coke kill sperm so i search online to find out more and i get the answer, that why i have low sperm count if i'm not wrong and my sperm is the problem for the pregnancy.

I now started to smoking less and drink less coke so i really hope that someone out there can help me to solve this problem.. What is the most important stuff i should eat or do to improve the sperm and massage which part of the body get help too?

So i and my wife can get pregnacy again with nothing go wrong cos we cannot take it anymore... We really hope to have a small family after we get marry for 4years. I really hope my sperm count can get improve, Thank to everyone that can help me solve the problem and hope that the Doctor can find a way to stop parents getting stillborn baby cos it a very sad thing. Until now i and my wife still cannot forget what happen in 2009... All the best to all the parents,God bless u all and will look after all of u
