Welcome to and thanks for your question.

Low sperm count is also termed as oligospermia and there can be multiple causes for low sperm count.

The important cause which can be responsible include low testosterone levels, genetic defect, infection involving the testis , drug-induced side effects, varicocele, any injury or trauma.
Excessive history of smoking, alcoholism can also be responsible.
A consultation with a urologist in person can be considered for further management.

what can we do to raise his sperm count?
Expert:  Dr. Anil replied 5 years ago.
Well medication is decided and prescribed after a cause is defined and diagnosed.

You will have to see your doctor for further evaluation and management.


There are some supplements which can be considered.
Terristeris tribulus and Ginseng are good natural agents to restore sperm count and energy

Otherwise your doctor may prescribe IUI - Intrauterine insemination where wash the semem/sperm is done and directly place the sperm inside the uterus, and also IVF - Invitro Fertilization.
