:hello I was reading your post wht does cigarette smoking have to do with sperm count. I want my husband to quit and if I can give him some good reason he may just do it. thanks : My husband had mumps at some point in his life.Neither him or his mother remember when he had it, but she verified that it caused inflammation in his testicles. His sperm count is 10 mil. with 78% abnormal forms. Motility went from 10% his first analysis, to 50% his last analysis. Is there any hope for us? We can't afford I.V.F., ICSI, etc., our insurance doesn't cover artificial methods of treatment. My husband is 42 years old and has not fathered a child. I have a child from a previous marriage. We want soooo bad to give him a sibling. And I want soo bad to carry my husband's baby.
: : Are we wasting our time??? Any cures or treatments for bad sperm? From what I've read, it doesn't look good at all. I'm 29 and have a few more years to try, but it sure is getting to be awful depressing. We've been at this for 7 years now.

: You are NOT wasting your time. You are only 29. I am 40! Took me six years to conceive my first and only child with my hubby with low sperm count. He was
: tested as having a level of 18 and then told us "normal" was 50-100. I don't know if that's million or what. But it only takes ONE
: little sperm to get to that egg, dear, so please hold on to hope. If hubby smokes cigs or pot, make him stop! Mine does and we
: are having a major battle about it, continuing for years.... We have been trying for child #2 for almost 10 years now and have had
: three miscarriages. It is not fun, but if we get a good sperm and a good egg together, we can still have a miracle happen! I wish
: the best for you, and please correspond with me if you wish to. P.S. We also had a diagnosis of 1/3 abnormal morph. :-( BUT WE
: DO HAVE ONE CHILD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-) Brenda
