Diet changes

Diet changes are often the most helpful thing in improving sperm motility. Diet changes can have a drastic effect on motility. The proteins L-Carnitine and acetyl-L-carnitine are the two most helpful proteins for guys who are suffering from poor sperm motility. They can help give the sperm more energy and in turn, the ability to move faster on their long journey. Vitamin C, B vitamins, selenium and zinc are also proven to help sperm motility as well!


Exercise is also important. Maintaining a healthy weight and being active are also ways to keep your sperm healthy and moving properly. Obesity can make sperm move more slowly. This can also help reduce stress, which we all know can lead to even more fertility problems.

Quit smoking and alcohol

Smoking and alcohol use, of course, can be detrimental to sperm. They can not only kill sperm and reduce sperm counts, but also can hurt sperm’s motility. Try to have your guy quit these or at least cut back as much as possible while trying to conceive. Of course, the same goes for illegal drugs as well.

Use natural lubricants

It might sound surprising, but lubricants that you buy at the drugstore can really hinder sperm movement as well. It is because of the chemicals that they contain. You need to make sure to use a natural lubricant like peanut oil or vegetable oil. Also ask your doctor about any medications you are currently taking that might affect sperm in a negative way.

If you follow these tips and still do not see an increase in sperm motility, you should definitely see a doctor to discuss your options as to what you can do to help your sperm’s motility.
