Ways to Increase Sperm Count

If you think you may be struggling with male infertility, try these ways to increase sperm count to help conceive faster.

There are many myths about infertility, which couples who are trying to conceive may feel discouraged by. It is commonly believed that in most cases, it is the woman’s “fault” that the couple can’t conceive. The truth is that, from a statistical point of view, one third of all couple infertility problems are attributed to the woman and one third to the man and one third to the couple together.

Sperm count and quality are essential factors in male fertility. The good thing is, that every man can increase sperm count and quality through simple changes in lifestyle. So, what are the best ways to increase sperm count? It is actually very easy and there are no complicated procedures or expensive drugs involved.

Healthy lifestyle

Many of the men with infertility issues also have a hectic lifestyle, meaning that they are so stressed out, that they will take up habits like smoking or drinking alcohol and they will probably overdo it with the caffeine intake.

So, the following rules will also help you live healthier and put some discipline in your daily life.

Cut back or eliminate smoking
Cut back on alcohol – of course you are not required to quit drinking alcohol for good, but try not to drink it every day and watch it with the quantity
Reduce caffeine intake
Reduce stress levels – this might sound impossible, but just try to get more sleep and take at least half an hour off every day to relax your body and mind
Exercise – regular exercise will do your body good, but be careful, too much exercise will do exactly the opposite.

Healthy diet

If you are overweight, you should strive to reach a healthy weight. If you have a normal weight, you should try and maintain it. Body fat is known to inhibit certain reproductive hormones, causing a low sperm count and infertility.

Eat whole foods such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds.
Avoid spicy foods
Maintain a diet rich in protein (lean meats, low-fat dairy products, eggs)
Stay well hydrated

Vitamin supplements

Vitamins that help increase sperm count are:

Vitamin C
Vitamin E
Vitamin B12

Keep sperm cool

The most important thing you should remember when looking for ways to improve sperm count is: ‘DO NOT overheat sperm’. This means you should avoid tight underwear, minimize or eliminate hot tubs, hot baths, saunas, prolonged sitting and try to minimize the distances for bike-rides.

Following these simple rules will definitely get you where you want, so you can start picturing that day when you are able to hold your baby!
