These natural ways to improve male fertility will show you how to make more sperm, which might help you get pregnant faster.
Supplements like FertilAid for Men may improve sperm health for some men – but there are less expensive things you can do.
According to the Mayo Clinic, about 40% percent of infertility is caused by problems with the man’s sperm, either due to low sperm count or sperm abnormalities. Luckily, you can create healthier sperm in several different ways.
If you’re curious about your sperm, try a Sperm Check for Fertility (male sperm test). And, here are four natural, easy ways to get pregnant faster…
How to Make More Sperm
Low sperm count can result from blockage of the passages that carry the sperm. Poor sperm quality is sperm that do not move well or are misshapen. Sperm abnormalities may be caused by different diseases, malnutrition, genetic disorders, environmental factors or a combination of these.
Brush and floss your teeth regularly
One research study found that men who received regular dental treatments and who took care of their teeth had improved sperm health, compared to men who didn’t take care of their teeth. Untreated dental problems and poor dental hygiene may contribute to overall poor health. An, bacteriospermia (bacteria in semen) has been linked to male infertility. So, to improve male fertility and get pregnant faster, floss and brush your teeth at least twice a day. This may improve your love life, too!
Avoid toxins in the workplace to make sperm healthy
When my husband was diagnosed with poor sperm health (and eventually azoospermia), the fertility doctor asked if he was exposed to harmful geological substances at work. He didn’t think he was, but the doctor said that environmental toxins may be around without us even knowing it. Research shows that men in occupations such as farming, painting, welding, metal working, and varnishing have a higher chance of infertility and lower sperm counts, compared to men in other jobs. If you’re in a potentially toxic job, one way to make sperm healthy is to consider looking for new work.
Treat your other health issues
Sperm health and fertility levels are directly related to your overall health. So, if you have medical issues (such as diabetes, thyroid problems, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease), make sure you get the right treatment as soon as possible. If you haven’t seen a doctor lately, get a medical checkup – and perhaps even a fertility workup. Also, ask your doctor for ways to improve sperm health.
Eat more antioxidants to increase sperm health
Antioxidants prevent cell damage from free radicals. Free radicals are produced naturally by your body when it breaks down your food, but are also created when you’re exposed to things like toxic chemicals, radiation, cigarette smoke, or pollution. Since sperm are also cells, you can make sperm healthy by adding antioxidants to your diet. In fact, researchers have found that men who took antioxidants in supplement form had less DNA damaged sperm than men who did not take antioxidants. Some researchers found that couples had higher pregnancy rates if the men took additional antioxidants.
