Stop Smoking

Of course, we all know how bad smoking is for all body processes, but it especially affects fertility and sperm count. If a man smokes, he should definitely consider quitting to boost his sperm count. If he doesn’t smoke, he should try to avoid people who do smoke. Some studies have shown that men who don’t smoke have up to twenty percent higher sperm counts than men that do!

Take A Multivitamin

Guys should obviously try to eat a healthy diet and get all of their nutrients from food sources, but, let’s be honest, that doesn’t always happen! So, a great way to make sure that guys are getting all of their vitamins and minerals is to take a daily multivitamin! This goes without saying, but a good multivitamin will have effects on all of the body processes, not just fertility, so they are a good idea for all guys! Many men would also benefit from looking into male fertility herbs as well.

Stay Fit

Maintaining a healthy weight and exercising regularly is a great way to improve sperm count. Men who are overweight have lower sperm counts and decreased fertility, so it is important for your guy to be in the best shape possible!

Have More Sex

This might not be one that you expected to hear. Sometimes, couples think that if a man has low sperm count, they should only have sex on fertile days and “save” the sperm, so to speak. However, this is not really the case. Experts think that having regular sex can actually improve a man’s sperm count, since each time he has sex, he will “lose” some of the defective sperm, and make room for healthier sperm to be produced. It’s worth a try!

Stay Cool

Wearing tight clothing, spending a lot of time in saunas, steam rooms, or hot tubs, and wearing briefs can all contribute to overheating of the scrotum, and these things can lead to decreased sperm count. If at all possible, have your guy avoid these things.

No Drinking

Alcohol use can also contribute to lowered sperm count, so if your guy is struggling with this problem, try to get him to limit his alcohol intake. Of course, all drugs or alcohol should be avoided if you are trying to get pregnant. That advice is not just for guys!

Watch His Work Environment

Certain work environments can wreak havoc on a man’s sperm count and fertility. If your man works around chemicals such as paint, pesticides, car fumes, etc, you might want to look into whether or not his workplace might be contributing to his fertility issues.

Eat Better

Eating a great diet is a big factor in fertility for both men and women, so make sure that your guy is eating well. Some of the vitamins and minerals that your guy needs to include in his daily diet? Zinc, Selenium, Vitamin C, L- Carnitine, Vitamin A and Iron are all important.
