Long term TTC & infertility

hello, im new to this but here goes.
last week we have found out that my partner has a very low sperm count - we have been trying for a baby for a year now but due to our age (22) doctors told us to keep trying. since getting the results my oh has become depressed and is pushing me away. we would welcome any advice or stories about natural conception with a low sperm count. the docs have told us to try for a few more months and then they will do further tests. i myself have gynocology problems however a recent laposcopy have diagnosed normal findings.

My husband also has low sperm count. We had been trying for a year when we both were tested. Most doctors like to see around 20 million sperm. My husband had 10, not million just 10. He was pretty upset as well because he felt like he was the reason we weren't able to have children. That same month I had an HSG where they fill your tubes and uterus witha dye to see if there are any problems. Some how that seemed to help and we ended up pregnant with only 10 little sperm. I unfortunately miscarried but that was a fluke on my end but overall your husband should try to stay positive and enjoy the fact that he's supposed to have lots of bedroom time with you. They say, "Practicing is the best part of having children."

hey everyone, this is our trouble too. 1st SA was borderline and second was much below average in all respects. We have a referral for Oct been trying for 14 months : ( I have heard that HSG can 'flush' and a few women on here have got pg after that : ) it really does give me hope that we can do it with our swimmers : ) having a 3rd SA just incase they are on the decline x

We have been to the clinic today to do a 3rd SA because both others were not great results but in different ways! the nurse was even confused! So we will see what this reveals. We have our first app at clinic in October so will hopefully get some more answers then

This is the best advice u can give u. Stop trying and think positive!!! My partner has low motility (30%) and very low count (2 million) ... but u only need ONE GOOD SPERM.!!! 30% is still 600,000 sperm that are ok. Now I am 39 we ttc for 2 years and I have a Unicornate Uterus. We were told ivf was only option. One week before we were due to look at clinics I fell pregnant naturally and am now nearly 8 weeks pregnant. We stopped trying because we figured our only option was ivf, and because we chilled out and stopped trying it happened!!!! Lol so like i said have faith because u only need one good egg and one good sperm. Xxx
