We all are very much aware of the fact that men play the main role in getting a woman pregnant. It can happen that the couple tries to get pregnant but fail at times. This can happen due to some medical reasons, some illness any of the partner suffering from. This can also happen because of some missing food supplements in your daily diet. So here are some of the ways which your partner can adopt to help you getting pregnant with a healthy baby.
How to improve male fertility
Regular visits to the doctor
It’s a good idea to have a complete physical exam so that the doctor can check for conditions that may affect fertility. If they have a chronic disease or take any medication take regular visits to the doctor. There are a number of conditions in male that might affect their fertility which needs to be checked. Sexually transmitted infections also affect the fertility.
Let the doctor know about everything they are taking, whether it’s prescribed or over-the-counter. Consider bringing the medications to the appointment, so that the doctor will know exactly what they’re taking and in what doses.
Certain medications can affect your sperm’s quality and quantity and cause male fertility problems. This is reversible, as when you plan to get pregnant your partner can shift to other safer medications.
Getting in touch with medical roots
Find out if anyone in your family had a genetic or chromosomal disorder such as Down syndrome, sickle cell anaemia, cystic fibrosis, Tay-Sachs disease, or a bleeding disorder.
Maybe you and your partner can opt for genetic counselling. This type of counselling helps you find out what risks you face and which screening tests to consider before pregnant.
Eat healthy food
Eating healthy food provide you with all types of nutrition and make the body healthy and boost the sperm count, and if the sperm healthy, the baby will be a healthy one. Studies suggest that some antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, can help in boosting sperm count and motility.
Eating a healthy diet can help to maintain a healthy weight, too. Being overweight has been linked to a number of problems such as lower testosterone, poor sperm quality, and reduced fertility.
One should completely cut out recreational drugs (such as marijuana and cocaine), cut down on alcohol, and quit smoking before you start trying to conceive. Even using chewing tobacco can lead to poor sperm function.
Stay away from hazardous things
Regular exposure to pesticides and other chemicals such as organic solvents, which are often found in dry cleaning and auto shops, can make it more difficult to conceive. They also can alter sperm composition, leading to birth defects and premature delivery. So make sure they say away from such hazards.
Boxers or briefs
Studies say that the testicles can get overheated in briefs, inhibiting sperm production. So prefer wearing boxers as much as possible.
Studies have found that long hours on a hard bike seat can lead to lower semen volume and reduced sperm count and motility.
Wearing bike shorts for hours on end can kill sperm as effectively as soaking in a hot tub. The scrotal area gets hot and sweaty on a bike seat, and that can lead to lower sperm counts in avid cyclists. If they’re going to ride, limit the time in the saddle, wear loose-fitting shorts, and choose the softest seat available.
Despite all these recommendations, tell your partner to relax and live a stress-free lifestyle with improved habits. Remember healthier the sperm healthier the baby.
