My friend who works at a clinic told me they give those pills out The two I said I take. I'm just worried this won't go back to the way it was. My sperm was fine in dec 15
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 month ago.

pills like clomid can help you produce more sperm

your sperm counts will go back and get better

it is normal for them to vary.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I'm not worry about count. It's the progressive part
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 month ago.

the sperm's progressiveness and motility can vary with blood testing. and most likely will get better.
