FertilAid and Low Sperm Count
A low sperm count (scientifically referred to as "oligospermia") is when the semen you ejaculate during an orgasm contains fewer sperm than is considered normal. The World Health Organization defines a low sperm count as less than 20 million sperm per milliliter of semen.
Having a low sperm count has obvious implications for your ability to father a child; the fewer sperm you produce, the lower the likelihood is that one will be able to successfully fertilize the egg. For some couples in which the man has a low sperm count, a medical procedure such as in vitro fertilization is required to achieve pregnancy.
There are a number of factors that can contribute to a low sperm count, including a man’s age, smoking, nutritional deficiencies, excess weight, and genetic factors.
FertilAid for Men is a non-prescription dietary supplement designed to help improve a man’s sperm count, as well as motility and morphology. FertilAid consists of key vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids that have been demonstrated to improve these sperm parameters. A double-blind, placebo-controlled study published in the American Society of Andrology’s Annual Proceedings for 2009 indicated that supplementation with FertilAid for Men increases the total number of motile sperm a man produces.

"Stay on the FertilAid!!"
By Mendy from Danville, Indiana on July 21, 2011
My husband and I have been TTC for 10 years now. We were so disheartened when we heard our RE tell us between my PCOS and my husband's low sperm #'s, our dreams of having a child of our own was very dim without IVF. Our insurance does not cover IVF and we were afraid that was going to be the end of our dream. However, after doing research online I found FertilAid (the answers to our prayers). We both have been taking the FertilAid, and FertileCM for me as well for a little over a year. I have had TWO unmedicated cycles on my own (that's just the second time that has happened to me without medication!!!) I just received news from our RE's office that my husband last count was tremendous!! The RE credits that to FertilAid and told us to "Stay on the FertilAid!!!!" We are now scheduled for an IUI, and praying that with FertilAid our dreams will come true. Bless you and all that you have done!
Lifestyle Changes Plus FertilAid
By Carl from Arizona on March 25, 2012
We were trying to get pregnant for 11 months. At 10 months we got the news that my sperm count was low (9.6 million) and motility was average. After getting the news, I changed a lot of things including not drinking alcohol, caffeine, ate a lot more berries, and started taking FertilAid. After one and a half month we are pregnant. I was never retested, but believe that it had something to do with it.
BFP After Three Years Trying
By Heidi from Miramar, Florida on November 28, 2010
We've been ttc for 3 years. A coworker mentioned it helped a friend of hers get pregnant and although I was skeptical anything out of a bottle can undo PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome), AND help my husbands low (almost nill) sperm count and motility, I decided to try them starting out with the Complete Little Bundle Kit. I couldn't tell if one product was better than the other as I started out taking everything. I went from waiting 60 + days between periods...to 45 days...to 34 days...recently I came back from a week-long vacation and realized that I was 49 days without a period meaning that although I haven't changed my routine, my period was going back to being late again! I started cramping lightly as if I was expecting my period any day now....but it never came. The cramping was suspicious as it was going on for 2 weeks and with no period in sight so I decided to buy a pregnancy test. Amazingly there it clearly was!! It was POSITIVE! I found out the day before Thanksgiving and what a wonderful thing to be thankful for. It took me a little over 3 months just as the package directions requested you wait a minimum for. You don't lose much to at least give these a try! Don't lose hope. Baby dust to everyone TTC!
By Alicia from NB, Canada on August 4, 2010
My husband & I have been ttc for over 3 yrs & after numerous tests have discovered there is nothing wrong with me, but with his sperm count & the fact they are sluggish. In Dec09 he did a test & his count was 8, in April10 his count went down to 2.7 & we were told to start looking about other options to help us conceive as the possiblity of us having a child naturally without help was highly unlikely. My husband just had another analysis done on July 3010 after using FertilAid for Men for 3 months & learned yesterday that his count is now at 40 million!!! My husband has diabetes & cholesterol problems, & we firmly believe that with his diet changes, keeping his cholesterol & sugar controlled, taking FertilAid & lots of prayer God is working a miracle for us. We have hope like we haven't had in a long time. When you're told you may not have a child without medical intervention the blow is devasting when all you've ever wanted to become was a mother. My husband's urologist told us just yesterday that this jump in count is remarkable & he wouldn't be surprised if we have a surprise by December if his counts keep going up like this. If not, we are willing to try IUI just to give a little extra edge to have a baby. So it's off to my doctor again in a couple weeks fueled with new hope in our ttc journey. If you're at the end of your rope, try this product. We know the pain & heartache involved when you so desparately want a child & can't seem to have your dreams come true. To the makers of FertilAid, Bless you! Our hope is renewed & we can't thank you enough!
FertilAid helped to get us PREGNANT!
By Crystal from Alberta, Canada on December 22, 2009
In Oct09 we were diagnosed with secondary infertility due to male factor. We ordered Fertilaid for Men. Hubby also started taking CoQ10, Vit E, Vit C, Fish Oil & Pycnogenol. He cut back his caffine intake and stoped soaking in the tub. 3 Months later he went for another semen analysis. His count went from 30 million to 265 million. His motility went up from 46% to 51% and morphology went up from 3% to 6%. 3 days after his analysis we took a Home Pregnancy Test and it was positive, I think it was everything he did and was taking that helped us to get PREGNANT! Thanks FertilAid!

Hi,i have been taking this for two months and my sperm count has gone up significantly..
We had twins
By Dee T. from Antioch, CA on June 8, 2009
After trying for 2 years, my husband got his sperm count tested and it was bad news. The doctors said that we would have to take very expensive steps to become pregnant. I found this website and ordered a number of products, but my husband and I are convencied that FertilAid did it for us. On our second cycle we were pregnant with boygirl twins. We will use this product again!
By J from NY on April 22, 2009
My husband has low counts across the board after a semen analysis. I started giving him FertilAid once a day. It was impossible to get him to take it 3x a day. He just had the test repeated(4 months later) and ALL his numbers are way above normal. The doctor said whatever he is doing he should keep doing it. I admit I wasn't sure it would work. I am very pleased with this product.
By Becky D. from Central Washington on March 8, 2009
After trying unsucessfully to get pregnant for 6 months, we had a sperm count done. Our doctor told us that we would not be able to conceive without some type of sperm manipulation. Not only was the count very low, but most of the sperm were deformed. The liquification of the semen was also 3x what is normal. After getting a second opinion which was the same as the first, we decided to start trying some new things. We got my husband on Fertilaid for men, started using preseed, I used ovulation test strips four times a day and we used Instead cups after intercourse. I was pregnant after my next cycle! I know that my husband was not on Fertilaid long enough for his sperm to be affected, that takes three months. But I can tell you there was a big change with in a few days in his semen. It was much thinner! It is my firm belief that Fertilaid for men, along with the aid of the other products I mentioned, made enough of a difference for us that we were able to concieve in the first month of using them. I know it sounds too good to be true, but with how inexpensive these products are compared to some of the procedures our doctors recommended, please just give them a try. We are so thankful we did!
Increased my count
By David from Texas on July 30, 2010
I have had several seamen analysis done over the last year. I did two at first to make sure I had an accurate count (by OBGYN request, had around 5-7 million on both results) and then I was given antibiotic to kill off white blood cells, hopefully to increase the count. The antibiotic didn't work and my count fell to about 2 million. I submitted some of my swimmers to storage and then went on Clomid (?) for 3 months. The test result after the Clomid showed about 6 million. My wife and I had given up hope on natural conception and artificial insemination and went to see a new Dr. about IVF. In the mean time I had been taking FertilAid for 3 months to try and get my count above 10 million so we might be able to do AI. One thousand dollars for AI is a lot better than 15,000 for IVF! After my last check I had over 10 million (almost 11)! We have yet to get pregnant but FertilAid did work some what to raise my count. I was on the site today ordering another 3 month supply and decided to get the combo pack for the wife and I .
By Larry from Los Angeles, CA on July 24, 2010
It definitely helped my Swimmers. I had Average counts and after a couple of months my Count, Morphology, and Motility all increased.
From zero to 10 million!
By Mom of One on June 15, 2010
A year after my husband's cancer treatment, the fertility centre tested his sperm and it was at a count of zero. We have been using fertilaid for men for about one year, and my husband's last test ran in at 10 million, with normal motility. His count was so good that the fertility centre has advised us that we can start trying to conceive at home instead of with their help! Thank you fertilaid!
By Rebecca on May 24, 2010
My husband's sperm count after 4 SA's ranged between 4-6 million with 99% morphology (only 1% had normal shape). We were told our only hope was IVF with ICSI. Tried that, and it failed. So he went on FertilAid a few months ago and we decided to give Insemination a whirl, despite the bleak numbers. To our absolute shock and amazement, the analysis day of insemination showed 22 million ml and 65% motility! (morphology wasn't measured). That's actually in the "normal" range for IUI. The only change he's made is taking the FertilAid. I highly recommend it. It has given us so much hope! Thank you!
By Yan on April 14, 2010
This product does exactly what it's promised "increase sperm count". I have been using this product for almost 3 months results are significant before I had in the range from 12 to 16 millions, after using the product count went up in the range from 40 to 56 millions. The count represents good active sperms (after it's been washed for IVI ), average % of sperms moving in forward direction varies from 40 to 65%. Chances to get pregnant increase 3 times in my case. I want to share my experience with all people who are looking for the right solution. I hope my review will add some confidence to people to use this product. Best of luck to all who needs it.
Not Pregnant Yet...
By Hopeful on February 9, 2010
My husband and I have been purchasing this item since Winter of 08 and it has indeed increased his count...a lot!!!! we love will be getting more. I do recommend this to anyone TTC.
By John on December 17, 2009
Holy cow. Not sure if this is just coincidence or what but my wife and I have been trying to get pregnant for two years. I have had a varicocelectomy (sp?) and strongly suspected it was my low sperm count that was the problem. Within one month of starting the Fertilaid for men my wife got a positive pregnancy test! This is a true story. Again, not sure if this is coincidence or not because I haven't had a semenalysis since starting Fertilaid but I really believe it helped!
By anon in Seattle on November 20, 2009
First I want to say that this is my first product review ever! FertilAid addressed the "male factor" in our struggle with infertility. We now how a beautiful 13 month baby boy. If you're struggling to get pregnant and believe it may be to low sperm count/quality please give this a try! We conceived our little boy after 30 days taking Fertillaid + IUI. Best wishes to couples out there on the journey towards conception.
By AH on September 13, 2009
After a year of trying for our second child my husband was diagnosed with male infertility due to poor sperm morphology. After taking this for 3 months his second analysis was so much better. His count went way up and his morphology was normal! After 6 more months, we are pregnant! We feel so blessed but do believe this helped a ton.
By Timmy on July 26, 2009
I had surgery for a varicocele a little over a year ago. After the surgery, My sperm count increased to 17 million. My wife saw an add for Fertile aid for men on Tv and we ordered it. I have been taking it now for about 6 months and My count has increased from 17 million to 78 million. We unfortunately have not conceived yet, but with improvements in my count like this I don't think that it will be long until we do.
Fertilaid for Men
By Anne Marie on June 25, 2009
My husband suffers from low sperm count, motility, and morphology. We were able to get pregnant with our son through IVF 4 years ago. We have done 4 rounds of IVF and so far have not gotten pregnant. My husband began taking fertilaid and his count has gone from 4 million to 28 million. His motility has gone up from 1 million to 6 million. His morphology has stayed at 23% but it is now 23% of 28 million! Our doctor said he has about 6 million good sperm vs. the 200,000 good he had had before. We are very pleased and hoping we will get pregnant soon. Say your prayers for us. I highly recommend this product. Visit infertility-hope-and-compassion.com to read our story.
