What is the normal sperm count required to get pregnant?
It is difficult to estimate the amount of sperm cells in an ejaculate required to get pregnant. In theory, you only need one sperm cell to create a baby, but most people realise they need a few more to conceive. If you have a sperm count below 15 million sperm cells per millilitre, you are considered to have a low sperm count, making it less likely to achieve pregnancy without fertility treatment. It is possible to conceive with less than 15 million sperm cells per millilitre, but it often takes some time, and you may require help from a fertility clinic.
Many men struggle with a low sperm count, reducing their chance of conceiving with their partner. Fortunately, there are treatments available for men diagnosed with a low sperm count. If you want tips on how to conceive with a low sperm count, then follow the link to our blog post.
