Treatment For Asthenozospermia?
Hello doctor! My husband and I have been married for 3 years but have not yet been blessed with offspring. My husband was examined as having asthenozospermia and I was normal. We managed to get pregnant naturally and had a miscarriage at the age of 6weeks a year ago. So far, the treatment has only been consuming oligocare and now added with Dr. Obgyn’s nuvigen. The questions 1. Which is effective between the two supplements? 2. What treatment is appropriate for my husband’s case? 3. Do you need to go to androlog? If so, can you recommend an andrology specialist in Jakarta? Thanks.
Thank you for the question.
Asthenozoospermia is a condition in which there is a decrease in the movement of sperm in more than 50% of sperm that can affect the ability of sperm to swim fertilize an egg and cause difficulties in obtaining offspring. This movement disorder can be caused by many factors, such as metabolic disorders in sperm or lack of certain substances in sperm such as DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), structural disorders in the sperm tail, and other unknown causes.
Here are things you can do to overcome asthenozoospermia:
IVF program, by firing sperm directly into the egg so that sperm can directly fertilize the egg. Take supplements or vitamins that can increase sperm motility, such as supplements containing DHA, DAA (D-aspartic acid), vitamin C, vitamin D, and Zinc. The two drugs that you mentioned basically have different compositions, the first has a composition such as a multivitamin and the second is herbal-herbal substances. Until now, there have been no studies that prove one drug is better than the other. Lifestyle improvements. For this reason, you can consult a real-time specialist doctor if you are interested in undergoing IVF, and you can also consult an andrologist available at HealthReplies.com and adapt to your domicile.
The following recommendations for lifestyle improvements that your husband can do:
Eat nutritious foods, contain lots of vitamins, antioxidants, and folic acid such as vegetables, fruits, and nuts. Avoid soybeans because soybeans have isoflavones which affect sperm quality. Take a multivitamin as a food supplement. Avoid smoking, soft drinks and alcohol. Reduce weight or achieve ideal body weight. Regular exercise 3-5x a week. Get enough sleep at least 6-8 hours a day. Hope this helps :)
