i am trying to conceive, my husband sperm analysis came back with high sperm count but low motility. can i still get pregnant with low motility?

It is possible to get

It is possible to get pregnant with low motility, but it is likely to be more difficult. Often fertility doctors will make the same suggestion for men with either low sperm counts or low motility:
* Inseminations for about 3-6 months
* Then consider IVF with ICSI if not pregnant

Sometimes traditional IVF with male fertility problems is not effective because the sperm sometimes cannot fertilize an egg. ICSI gets around this problem by injecting the sperm into the egg. It's a bit more expensive than IVF but increases your chances quite a bit.
