Hi everyone, I'm Emily. I normally post in the TTC board, but I have a quick question and thought you ladies would be the best to ask.

DH got his first SA done yesterday, and his results came back with lower than average sperm count and motility.

While my OB recommended we keep trying naturally for a few months, I thought that at the very least he could try taking some vitamins to see if that makes any difference. If there is no BFP in the next 4 months or so he will go in for another SA and we'll take it from there.

Are there any specific types/brands of vitamins that you might suggest he try in the time being?

Thanks in advance, I appreciate the help!

My husband takes GNC mega man and I have heard great things about wellman conception so if I am not pregnant soon I will be switching him to the wellman. Good luck!.

My DH had good count and good motility but low morphology. In addition to his general multivitamin, we added the following supplements and, in about one month, his morphology percentage doubled (from 2% to 4% under strict criteria). We also both switched to a mostly organic diet at the same time.

With this result, we were able to do IVF without ICSI and had a 80% fertilization rate (10 mature eggs, 8 fertilized, 5 of them grew into robust healthy blastocysts). All of this was better than our RE expected (I am 39 so these are better percentages than normal for my age and at the start they were thinking 4-6 eggs would be a good result for me). Of course it's worth noting that I also consulted with a nutritionist and added coenzyme q10 and inositol to my supplements to help egg quality.

Vitamin E (200 IUs - urologist said not to go over 400 IUs total and there is some in his general multivitamin)
Selenium 200 mcg
L-Arginine 500 mg
Zinc - 100 mg
Folic Acid - 400 mcg
Vitamin C - 500 mg

Before starting we consulted with a nutritionist to make sure that was not too much of anything.

Check out the Complete Nutrition Vitamin packs by It Works. I feel amazing since I've started taking them. You can view my profile to get my website address to read more about these and place an order if you'd like.

Odorless fish oil Omega 3’s (315 mg of DHA)
A super form of Vitamin K, MK7
Reishi Mushroom
Fatty Acids
Phase Control Release
Multi Minerals
Is Gluten Free
Antioxidants
All packaged into a small individual daily servings that you can take with you anywhere. These packets contain 5 supplement tablets, three green and 2 white. The green tablets resemble the old Its Vital, with all the added bonuses. The two white tablets are the minerals, both coated with a cellulose coating, not a pharmaceutical coating. So you can take your vitamins with ease. You can take this packet at anytime of the day with the new Phase Control Release. Over 12 hours the packet will feed your body all the nutrients it needs.
