Frequently Asked Questions

Oligospermia is a male fertility issue characterized by a low sperm count. Other aspects of the sexual health of men with this condition are typical. This includes the ability to get and maintain an erection, as well as produce ejaculation at orgasm.

The term oligoasthenoteratozoospermia, or OAT, is used when all three of the following factors are present: An abnormally low level of sperm of a healthy shape (teratozoospermia) An abnormally low amount of sperm (oligozoospermia) An abnormally low amount of sperm with good motility (asthenozoospermia)

Most cases of severe oligoasthenoteratozoospermia are caused by idiopathic testicular abnormality or disorder. Genetic tests are abnormal in 7-10% of men with sperm counts less than 5 million/ml.

Sperm count: at least 20 million per milliliter (m/mL) Sperm motility, or the ability to move rapidly: 60% to 80% actively moving. Sperm morphology, or the sperm's shape and size: 70% to 90% normally shaped.

Normal sperm densities range from 15 million to greater than 200 million sperm per milliliter of semen. You are considered to have a low sperm count if you have fewer than 15 million sperm per milliliter or less than 39 million sperm total per ejaculate.

Although men never stop producing sperm throughout their lives, sperm production does begin decreasing after age 35. Motility, volume and genetic quality of sperm of older men are less likely to achieve a successful pregnancy even in younger women.

CoQ10 helps to balance out oocyte (immature egg) deficits leading to infertility. Research have also explored CoQ10 supplementation in regards to pregnancy rates and quality embryos. CoQ10 improves these numbers, as well as potentially improves IVF outcomes.

It is often given at a dose between 100 mg and 300 mg per day as directed by Physician.

CoQ10 supplementation produced a significant increase in follicular content and a significant improvement of its oxidative status.
