    Default zinc?

    Has anyone heard of zinc being good to increase sperm count/male fertility? DH just came out with this one - could be crap that his mates have been telling him!! I'm off to do a bit of googling...!

    You're right ... it is good for male fertility (and female fertility too). I used to take it in tablet form when TTC.

    A lot of the men's multis have zinc in them. If your DH is taking a good multi and eating healthily that's a great start.

    My Dr advised that DH start increasing his zinc intake so he now takes Centrum every day

    Zinc is really important and a lot of people don't realise how important it is. You can do a Zinc tally test at Terry White chemists for free if you are not sure what your Zinc levels are.

    I read this when we were TTC as well.

    Possibly coincidence, but after DH's first sperm analysis, his count was <1 million. I fed him up on zinc tablets (just straight zince, not multivitamins), and his next test was 4 million, then his next one was 11 million.
