In many cases male infertility is caused by abnormalities in the sperms. Luckily, there are ways you can increase the quality of your sperms and increase your fertility. The following tips are simple but essential and quite effective.
Research has showed that an increasing BMI is correlated with a decreased sperm count and movement. That’s why you should maintain a healthy weight and stick to a healthy diet as well. Eat more vegetables and fruits, especially those rich in antioxidants to improve the health of your sperms.
Sexually transmitted infections are directly linked to infertility of men. Men who have chlamydia or gonorrhea may become infertile. To avoid STIs use a condom and limit the number of your sexual partners or stick to a monogamous relationship with someone who is not infected.
Stress decreases fertility and sexual functions. It also interferes with hormones that are important for the production of sperms. Avoid stressful situations or try to find ways to relax such as meditation, counseling or simply going for a walk. In fact, moderate physical activity can protect sperms.
While increasing the quality of your sperms you must avoid certain habits that could be detrimental to your sperms. Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol in high amounts. You should also avoid lubricants during intercourse or switch to using baby oil or sperm friendly lubricants. Make sure you stay cool because increased temperature negatively affects the health of your sperms.
