Thanks for your prompt advise.

Need to ask for one more thing.
I am trying for baby from last 6-7 months but it's not working. I have done my semen analysis report.It's with attachment for your referance.
Is there any chances that its causes due to kidney? According to you, Based on semen analysis report is there any major issue with my kidney and my sperm count?


Dear sir,

I have reviewed the semen analysis. The report is not very good; it is just ok. You need to consult with urologist regarding this also and get yourself examined.

Your kidney is not the cause for your poor semen analysis.

Take care
