    Default Headless sperm, I can't find much about it, anyone know?

    So DF's SA has said he has a lowish count, with low motility and really bad morph (96% bad). The 96% are headless (anucleated spermatozoa). The FS said that there is no chance of this changing or improving in any way. Anyone with info, advice? TIA

    i dont know much about the actual condition, but from what i understand, all the genetic makeup is in the head of the sperm, as once they have burrowed into the egg, they lose their tail anyway.

    sorry im not much help i just saw your post and wanted to give you i hope u find some solution!

    im really sorry to hear this news for you. have you tried seeing a np? or ap? i know one thing that i feel helped improve DH sperm was royal jelly and zinc as well as folate, vit C and cq10

    if you are going to investigate with natural threapies then i would give it at least 3mth then get a re test xx

    thanks guys

    loula, this was the second SA unfortunately with a 3 month wait between the last. We are going to look into ways to improve the remanining, heads-still-attached sperms quality, just a bit stumped as to where we should be looking now. DF was taking Menevit but now just plain old zinc multi.
