Based on your response to this question, which may indicate absence of sperm, very low sperm count, low sperm count or normal sperm count, The Analyst™
will consider possibilities such as:
The thyroid gland is responsible for balancing cell metabolism, so when the thyroid gland is not functioning properly, cell metabolism suffers. This causes changes in the production of sperm.
Zinc increases sperm count and motility as well as raising testosterone levels when low.
