My hobby at age 85 is studying health issues, but you certainly stumped me now! I know that my son had a low sperm count and it was suspected that it was from chewing tobacco. He quit several times but I don't know if that was permanent. My son told me there are few fertility specialists and they consult with each other, so you don't always need to travel to a certain doctor for advice. The doctor in Indianapolis who gave a $25,000 shot to the patient who had six children, might have the information you are seeking, if he is still practicing. He was a friend of of my aunt's doctor son, but I do not know his name. My aunt said that this one procedure was the only thing the doctor did to produce the six births. That was years ago. That is the only tip I have ever read. Dorisena
