IVF can be an option when the sperm count is low.
Has your husband spoken to the doctor to find out if there is anything physically wrong that it causing the low-none sperm count? Does he have a variocele for example?
Other things he can do include wearing loose fitting underwear to allow his testicles to be "cooler." How's his diet? Have him limit any alcohol and tobacco use. Drugs of any kind can impact fertility. Have him watch his weight as well, get more exercise. Men that "sit" for extended periods tend to have lower sperm counts.
As long as he's producing sperm you do have a chance of pregnancy.
thanks for your help .but I also have pcos and had irregular periods since day1 ,so it is now both of us with a problem,i could have try and deal with it when was just me but my hubby I think is not having that extra drive anymore I think he has given up
Talk to him Allison. He may be having self-esteem issues from the low/none sperm count.
Fertility issues can be devastating, for both of you. Counseling may help.
Would you consider adoption? There are many healthy babies that need a loving home.
Hope it helps. Good luck!
