Studies are mixed

There have been many studies done on the effects of male masturbation and fertility. Some of these studies have come back with mixed results, and there is data on both sides of the fence. Some of these studies say that male masturbation depletes the sperm count, making it harder for the woman to get pregnant from sexual intercourse.

These studies suggest that men refrain from masturbating to help improve fertility and that you try to get your man to stop masturbating altogether when you are trying to have a baby. However, these studies are few and far between. Most studies do not agree that masturbation is harmful to fertility at all.

No direct correlation

Most experts and researchers agree that there is no direct correlation between male masturbation and decreased sperm count or fertility problems. The fact of the matter is, the male body produces sperm at a staggering rate, so it is relatively easy for the body to replenish its sperm supply.

Of course, you can’t get pregnant through masturbation, so it might be a better idea to engage in sexual intercourse when you are ovulating instead of masturbating so you will have a chance to get pregnant at all. The studies that we have seen show little to no effect on fertility or sperm count, so don’t stress out about it.

If you are truly worried that your man masturbating will inhibit your ability to get pregnant, try to have him refrain from masturbating for a few days before you ovulate, so he will have a larger supply of sperm when you do have intercourse.

Don’t worry

There really is no reason to worry though, about masturbation and fertility. That is just something else to worry about, and we all know that stress and anxiety can have a negative effect on your fertility. Just keep in mind that the male body is able to make up for that lost sperm very quickly.

There should be no reason why your man’s body will not be able to compensate for any sperm lost during masturbation, and you should be still having the same chances of getting pregnant whether or not your man masturbates.
