    Improving sperm quality?

    My DBF had a vasectomy over 18+ years ago (long time before we met ), we have had 3 failed IVF/ICSI's using from a frozen TESE and 1 very short BFP from a fresh TESE sample.

    We were told that DBF's sperm could be the "problem" which is why we opted for fresh.

    I was just wondering if it is possible to improve the quality of the sperm even though it won't get the same "exercise" as "normal" sperm would.

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Vixen,
    I posted to you an another thread about acupuncture. My acupuncturist believes that it can also help increase the volume and quality for male factor. Not sure how it would work in your scenario but probably worth looking in to.
