Hello, As you are on your late thirties the basic cause behind your low sperm count is reduction in blood supply towards testicles due to deposition of atheromatous plaques on inner walls of blood vessels. It can be corrected and your sperm count can be made normal with the help of ayurvedic medicines. Activities like daily exercise, sound sleep, stress free life and healthy diet can ensure your accelerated recovery along with the medications. Good luck.

Certain antidepressants are prescribed for a variety of disorders besides depression, including bulimia, hot flashes, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, stroke recovery and sexual dysfunction.

A new study has revealed that a commonly prescribed anti-depressant, sertraline, marketed as zoloft, significantly increased the volume of one brain region in depressed individuals but decreased the volume of two brain areas in non-depressed individuals.

The findings of the study also suggest that although it is a common practice to prescribe antidepressants for various disorders besides depression, taking these medicines for treating disorders other than depression may expose us to unknown risks.

You can take simple analgesia like meftal-spas during periods- 2 to 3 times after food and see if it helps. If the pain continues then get a pelvic usg done.
