Increase Sperm Mobility

Trying to conceive? Find out ways to increase your guy's sperm mobility to help get pregnant faster.

When the spermatozoa are unable to swim in a straight line and fast enough to reach the egg, the diagnosis is called sperm motility. In spite of the fact that it affects a great number of men, it can be reversed, not only by following a proper medical treatment, but also by making some substantial changes in your way of life. Here are 6 of the little things that can help you to increase sperm motility. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Evaluate your current eating habits

Evaluating your current eating habits is a good starting point in eliminating the causes of this affection. Industrially processed foods contain a lot of chemicals meant to intensify their taste, improve their aspect and preserve them for a longer period of time. Most of these substances have a negative impact on the tiny particles found in your body, such as the spermatozoa. In time, not only the sperm’s mobility, but also its quality is diminished. You must replace these foods with fresh vegetables and fruits that are rich in minerals and vitamins.

Avoid Smoking and Drinking

Smoking and drinking excessively affects not only the sperm count, but also its motility. If you want to improve this situation, you must quit these health damaging habits. Also, you must ask your doctor for advice, in order to see if the medication you take as a treatment for different health problems has a negative impact on the motility of the spermatozoa.

Take vitamin and mineral supplements

Taking vitamin and mineral supplements is a good idea, especially when the purpose is to increase sperm motility. You need a high quantity of selenium, zinc and B-group vitamins that are not always assimilated from food, so you should choose the products based on this combination.

Go for natural treatments

Going for natural treatments is often the most effective method of solving health problems. A great variety of herbs have been used for thousands of years to boost fertility in men, like ginseng, that is used in traditional Chinese medicine to increase the level of testosterone and improve the sperm count. In Japan, a combination of more plants and herbs known as Hochu-ekki proved to be very effective in treating low sperm motility.


Having an active life and keeping in the best of shape through regular exercise brings many benefits to your general state of health. However, testicle injuries are a common cause of both low sperm count and reduced motility, and you must avoid some physical activities such as cycling, baseball, karate and other contact sports.

Wear loose underwear

Wearing loose underwear is another thing you can do to improve sperm motility. This is because the health of the sperm also depends on the comfort of the external reproductive organs.

    Needless to say, bad health will lead to a compromised sperm count. You should refrain from illicit drug use, quit smoking, and moderate or quit drinking alcohol. Also, you might consider cutting out unhealthy processed foods and switch to a high protein diet rich in vegetables and whole grains but low in fats. Regular exercise is also a big part of a healthy lifestyle and will reduce stress hormones that may damage sperm. Also consider stress-reducing exercise like yoga, tai chi, or meditation practice. If you have a documented sperm count issue, then timing intercourse and regulating the frequency of sex (to around three day intervals) may be advised. However, it is best to see your doctor so he can provide you with more specific details.

    The best thing for you to do is to have your partner evaluated by a doctor in order to determine what is causing his impaired fertility. Determining the cause helps identify what options for treatment would best fit his needs to improve fertility.
