Since sperm production is vital to male fertility and pregnancy, men need to know about healthy sperm. Here’s how male fertility affects pregnancy chances; these fertility tips are from Donald P. Evenson, Ph.D., HCLD, of the American Fertility Association.
First, the good news:
“Some alcohol is beneficial [for healthy sperm]” says Dr Evenson. “Especially dark red wines. So a glass a day may be positive [for sperm production]. However, dark grape juice may be substituted.”
And remember that too much alcohol isn’t good for men’s fertility levels, so stick to a glass of dark red wine a few times a week. It’s always good to check with your doctor first, though. If you’re trying to get pregnant and think you’re not producing sperm, read Overcoming Male Infertility.
