Poor health and poor nutrition can sometimes be reflected in low sperm counts. It’s important for men to live healthy lifestyles while trying to conceive. Improving your health by making good choices may help improve reproductive function and improve semen analysis numbers across all parameters. In addition, it is believed that taking certain vitamins may help improve male fertility. Infertile men have a higher concentration of free radical in their semen as compared to fertile men. Free radicals attack and destroy the membrane that surrounds the sperm. Taking vitamins may help combat this issue.

1. Men should avoid excessive hear (avoid waterbeds, saunas, hot tubs, etc.)
2. Limit coffee to 1 or 2 cups per day
3. Do not smoke
4. Do not use marijuana or other recreational drugs. Marijuana stays in the testes for 2 weeks, so even using it once every two weeks will have a negative effect.
5. Exercise regularly and moderately.
6. Drink no more than 2 ounces of alcohol twice per week.
7. Have good nutritional habits, especially a diet rich in fresh fruits and leafy vegetables (oranges, tomatoes, peppers, leafy greens, etc.), as well as fish. Avoid excess of animal fat (red meat, dried food, cheese and whole milk).
