When a couple is ready to have children, they begin to question how long is too late and whether they should seek medical care. Also, navigating professional help can be overwhelming because you have to consider questions like ‘Where do we start looking?’, ‘Who do we talk to?’ ‘How credible the referrals are?’, ‘What facility should we visit?’ and so on.

A low sperm count is also called oligospermia (ol-ih-go-SPUR-me-uh). A complete absence of sperm is called azoospermia.

However, for us at Bridge Clinic, we believe that "When life throws us lemons, we'll make the yummiest lemonade!".
