semen specimens were taken from the subjects following three to seven days’ abstinence. Semen parameters
including (volume, pH, concentration, and motility) were measured. Abnormal sperm sample subjects were given

The outcomes of this study demonstrated consumption of fertilAid has significantly improved sperm count/ml (p
< 0.05), also significant amelioration in the sperm motility including progressive and non-progressive motility (p
< 0.05). The rate of total sperm motility was significantly improved (p < 0.05).The concentration of immotile sperm
has considerablyreduced (p < 0.05).
