When we take a good look at some of our daily habits, it can be easier to understand what’s impacting our sperm count. If you are seeking to conceive a child with your significant other, some bad habits or lack of good habits could be impacting your fertility. The following four vices can be put in check to improve your chances and increase men’s fertility.
Keeping Fit is Your Best Bet
One of the very best things that you can do to improve men’s fertility is to keep your body healthy, balanced and in good shape. Experts advise that you exercise continuously for at least 30 to 60 minutes per day in combination with a balanced diet to maintain good health. The more overweight that you are, the lower your testosterone levels become, which are further decreased as the excess weight affects the heart and its functions.
Drinking Lowers Sperm Count
Not only does excessive drinking reduce your sperm count, it also lowers your testosterone levels. This is not to say that drinking in moderate isn’t okay – it is. But some guys have trouble moderating just one or two drinks or a six pack. Instead, reduce your drinking and curb it. Perhaps save those few beers for a Saturday of college football, and increase your sperm count naturally by doing so.
Sleep More Soundly
The body renews itself when you sleep. This includes the body helping to increase cell structure integrity in your sperm, which also impacts sperm motility. Additionally, sleep helps the body better regulate stress levels and reduce them, which impacts the amount of the “flight or fight” hormone created and released by stress, cortisol, which has been shown to denigrate sperm cell integrity.
Ingest More Antioxidants
Numerous studies conclude that an antioxidant rich diet helps to improve men’s fertility and sperm count. One reason is that antioxidants combat damaged cells called free-radicals, which deprecate sperm cell integrity and hamper production and motility.
Men who suffer from low sperm count or poor sperm motility have a number of different options they can consider for improving their odds. Sometimes, it’s just a few simple tricks that can be applied which can serve to greatly increase your chances. Use the following three suggestions to naturally improve upon men’s fertility by making some simple adjustments to your lifestyle.
Reduce Testicular Heat
If you have ever wondered why the testicles hang lower from the body when you are hot, it’s because they are protecting the sperm from damage that could be caused by excessive heat. Similarly, when you are too cold, the scrotum will shrink up against the body to better retain heat and to protect the sperm from cold that could cause damage. Common bad habits to avoid to reduce testicular heat include: not wearing tight fitting jeans or underwear, avoiding using a sauna or a hot tub and sleeping in the nude.
Better Manage Stress
Stress is a killer, as numerous studies have confirmed. Stress causes the entire body to become imbalanced. It also causes a detrimental hormone to be emitted called cortisol. This hormone not only depletes healthy levels of testosterone, but also created free-radicals (damaged cells) that can attack healthy sperm. Instead, manage stress with meditation, yoga, massage therapy or various hobbies in addition to getting plenty of sleep at night.
Save Sex for the Bedroom
If you frequently masturbate or have sex often try to reduce the occurrences of this. This is because your body will actually store more sperm, which can then be ejaculated during the ripest ovulation window. This will help to increase the chances of conception naturally. While some people think that you should just have sex more often, it’s not about how much sex you are having all of the time, but rather about how much sex you are having during the ovulation window.
The human body is a fascinating organism that mystifies and continues to boggle scientists and medical experts. The sheer complexity of the circulatory system, for example, is something that is still unable to be replicated in an artificial setting to better understand. While the human body still has many mysteries that remain yet to be solved, there are some facts that we do now better understand, particularly as they relate to women’s fertility. To make the most of your short ovulation window, make sure you consider stamping out these bad habits right now for enhanced women’s fertility. Chances are that you already know these are bad habits for your health. Hopefully this article encourages you to take action.
Sometimes getting pregnant can be a real struggle for some couples. While genetics play a role on both sides, there are always alternative options that you can consider before resorting to a costly fertility clinic bill. The following four suggestions can help you to immediately improve your odds. Always make sure you discuss any pregnancy enhancers with your doctor, and gain their approval, before using them for the best results.
1. Predict Your Ovulation Better: As opposed to merely guessing when the window of your ovulation is occurring, newer ovulation prediction kits can help you pinpoint this key window to optimize pregnancy chances. A woman will generally only produce a solitary egg during her ovulation cycle. A special kit checks the blood for the Luteinizing Hormone, which is produced just before your egg drops. This can enable couples to maximize their chances of conception naturally based upon knowing the exact ovulation cycle.
2. Special Lubrications: Newer lubrications are designed to aid the sperm by working to increase its motility. One product, such as Preseed, helps to increase the amount of cervical mucous that’s being created, which in turn aids the sperm in reaching the uterus and inseminating the awaiting egg.
3. Expectorants: You would never think that certain expectorants such as common cough syrups that are sold over the counter could help you get pregnant more easily. But studies concur that they help to thin the mucous in the cervix, which aids the sperm in reaching the egg by increasing motility.
4. Caffeine Reduction: Experts say that by reducing your caffeine intake, or by eliminating it altogether, you can increase pregnancy chances. Numerous studies purport a direct link between even moderated caffeine consumption and decreased conception rates. Even caffeine that’s found in soda and green tea can mar your chances. Abstain from this perky pick-me-up to better improve your conception odds.
