Why did your DH start using the cream?
On the research I've done it does lower the sperm count. He needs to tell the doctor what is going on an get off the stuff. You said he had average sperm why did he start using that stuff?
He needs to try taking Maca long with other Vitamins to help get his count back up to normal. Make sure he drinks plenty of water, eat fresh fruits and takes a really good Men's Multivitamins. I've got my DH on a Men's Multivitamins long with taking Maca an other vitamins to help with his count.
This is what my DH takes to his up his count. I will tell you his count at first was only 3million an now it up to 10million. Hope that we get a BFP here in a few days if not be going to another IUI. Then we will have another SA done to see how count is. Praying it up more to improve our chances more.
This is what I got my DH taking
Maca 2x a day
Ginseng (Panax ginseng) 1x time a day
Zinc 2x a day
Vitamin C-1000 with Rose Hips 2x a day
Co-Enzyme Q-10 30 Mg Capsules 1x a day
Multivitamin for men 2x a day
Lots of people may think I not telling truth but test results don't lie. His count years ago was over 120 million now it is down to these. So we are doing anything to make it come back up.
Vitamins, minerals, water, and amino acids (proteins) all play very important roles in semen production. While that's an oversimplified list, these are the main ingredients that your semen is produced from.
zinc: increases sperm cell production - can be found in lamb, oysters, fish
vitamins C, E: improves production and motility (swimming action) of your sperm cells
Coenzyme Q10 - Take 10 mg daily. Increases sperm count and motility. Helps with DNA damage too.
Ginseng (Panax ginseng) - Known as a male tonic (an agent that improves general health) and used to increase testosterone levels and sperm count.
L-carnitine - Take 3-4 grams daily. Required for normal sperm function.
Eat a natural foods diet that focuses on fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, fish, poultry, legumes, nuts, and seeds.
Drink 50% of body weight in ounces of water daily (e.g., a 150 lb man would drink 75 oz of water).
GoodLuck. Hope this gives you all some help.
