Based on the most recent World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines, experts consider a healthful sperm count to be 15 million per milliliter (ml), or at least 39 million per ejaculate. Doctors consider a sperm count under 15 million per ml to be low, and it may cause fertility issues.
The following are some natural ways to increase sperm count.
Get enough exercise and sleep
Relax and minimize stress
Avoid excessive alcohol and drug use
Avoid certain prescription medications
Take a Herbal supplement
Get enough vitamin D
Increase healthful fat intake
Reduce unhealthful fat intake
Get enough zinc
Limit the consumption of soy and estrogen-rich foods
Sometimes Infertility Is Linked To Sexual Function
Otherwise known as sex drive, libido describes a person’s desire to have sex. Foods or supplements that claim to increase libido are called aphrodisiacs.
Also known as impotence, erectile dysfunction is when a man is unable to develop or maintain an erection.
An important aspect of semen quality is the number or concentration of sperm cells in a given amount of semen.
An essential function of healthy sperm cells is their ability to swim. Sperm motility is measured as the percentage of moving sperm cells in a sample of semen.
Low levels of testosterone, the male sex hormone, may be responsible for infertility in some men.
Infertility can have multiple causes and may depend on genetics, general health, fitness, diseases, and dietary contaminants. Additionally, a healthy lifestyle and diet are important. Some foods and nutrients are associated with greater fertility benefits than others.
Keep Things Cool
• Avoid hot tubs and long hot baths – both of which can raise the scrotum’s temperature.
• Avoid sitting for long periods of time – Prolonged sitting has also been linked to decreased sperm health. If you have a desk job, get up and walk around throughout the day. The benefits of standing, even if it’s just long enough to refill your water bottle or talk to a coworker across the hall, are good for your whole body and mind.
• Don’t turn on your car seat heater – Studies have shown that seat can lead to higher than normal scrotal temperatures.
• Don’t sit with your laptop on your lap – Keeping your legs tightly together to balance the laptop, along with the heat generated by the computer itself, can lead to higher than normal scrotal temperatures.
• Wear breathable bottoms – Whether or not boxers are more fertility-friendly than briefs has long been a matter of debate. As long as you don’t wear extremely tight, non-breathable fabric, your choice of underwear probably doesn’t matter to your sperm health.
Taking herbal supplements, may also help. Maintaining a healthful, balanced diet that includes plenty of fruits and vegetables is the best way to boost sperm count through the diet.
