My husband is set to give a sperm sample for an IUI tomorrow and is being treated for an infected ingrown hair will this effect his sperm count? Should we just cancel the IUI and wait until next month?

Hello,

in this case I can reassure you, treatment like this has no effect on the quality of sperm at all. So there´s no need to cancel the IUI, I wish you success!

Best regards,

Will the infection be a cause for concern?
Expert:  Dr Norbert Scheufele replied 9 months ago.

Definitely not, the use of an antibiotic can resolve the problem, in the worst case a small surgical treatment could be indicated.
