10 Tips To Help Male Fertility

Thinking About Trying For A Baby? Read These Ten Tips To Help Boost Male Fertility Naturally

When you decide to have a baby, it's important to think about female and male fertility.

Men can do a great deal to improve their chances of conception and boost sperm counts by paying attention to health and lifestyle.

A Check-List For Men Who Are Trying For A Baby

Read our ten tips to help boost male fertility:

1. Keep Cool

Men have a higher sperm count when their genitals are kept at a cooler temperature. So stay away from hot tubs, hot showers and tight fitting underwear.

2. Avoid Alcohol

It lowers men's sperm count even when men are only drinking small amounts. And stop smoking - it has been shown to reduce both the sperm count and the sperm motility.

3. Sex

Have it in the morning as research shows that a man's sperm count is higher at this time so take advantage of it!

4. Take A Supplement

Take a supplement which contains specific nutrients such as zinc for male reproductive health (more info here on Wellman Conception, also available in a dual  Pregnacare His and Hers pack along with Pregnacare Conception)

5. Eat A Healthy Diet

Eat a healthy, balanced diet with plenty of fruit and veg. If men are malnourished or not getting enough of the right foods and nutrients their sperm count can suffer.

6. Keep Calm

Fatigue and stress can have an effect when trying for a baby. It's important to try and find a balance.

7. Avoid Toxins

Stay clear of environmental poisons and hazards. These include pesticides/insecticides, organic solvents, lead, ionizing radiation, heavy metals, and toxic chemicals.

8. Avoid Drugs

Even in moderate amounts, for example cannabis can cause a low sperm count, poor sperm speed and increased sperm abnormalities.

9. Watch Your Mobile Phones

According to research by scientists in Hungary, men who keep mobile phones switched-on in their trouser pocket or on belts have significantly lowered sperm counts and risk their fertility being cut by up to a third. Also, the sperm's motility may be affected by long calls. So put down your phone!

10. Exercise

Our final tip to help boost male fertility? Swap the exercise bike for the treadmill. The repeated banging of the groin against the bicycle seat can damage critical arteries and nerves.
