I am 40 and I have been trying to conceive for 2 years.
I don't have the figures, but the doctor says my hormone levels are good and indicating I am ovulating. my womb is healthy. I am generally in good health except for a slight borderline hypothyroidism which I have been told can cause complication in the event I should get pregnant but not prevent a pregnancy.
recently my partner got tested and his sperm count has come out quite low (again, sorry I don't have the figures) prompting the doctor to say that I will probably not get pregnant unless I do IVF.
I have heard your advice on late pregnancies and improving fertility and I was wondering if you have any advice for improving the health of the man and his sperm count.
Susun does discuss men's health as well in her latest book Down There, Sexual and Reproductive Health ... some things she discusses: Expect results in 7–9 months
• Ally with pumpkin seeds.
• Drink oatstraw infusion.
• Eat more shellfish.
• Experiment with astragalus.
Also, he should be drinking red clover infusions as well as you... Acupuncture, plenty of zinc rich foods, avoiding heat: "Heat interferes with fertility: tight-fitting pants, underwear, or swimsuits, hot tubs, saunas, laptops. Sperm start to degrade after being next to an active cell phone for an hour (in your pocket)." pg. 311, Down There...
Maybe he would be willing to call in during Susun's free health hotline? She could go over more then... each Tuesday evening from 7:30pm-9pm Eastern at (646) 929-2463
