    There are many issues that need to be addressed with the sperm. For instance there is mobility, motility, and agglutination. Mobility and motility have to do with the sperms ability to move fast and far while agglutination is a condition where the sperm are clumping together which prohibits them from reaching the egg. Agglutination can be fixed with zinc and vitamin C.

    Evening Primrose Oil is a must to have enough cervical mucus to take the sperm all the way to the egg. It is taken only from menstruation to ovulation as it can cause contractions in early pregnancy.
