What Is Male Infertility?
Fertility refers to people’s ability to reproduce by natural means.Male infertility is when a man has a poor chance of making his female partner pregnant. It usually depends on the quality of his sperm cells.The following aspects of sexual function and semen quality may affect fertility:
Otherwise known as sex drive, libido describes a person’s desire to have sex. Foods or supplements that claim to increase libido are called aphrodisiacs.
Also known as impotence, erectile dysfunction is when a man is unable to develop or maintain an erection.
An important aspect of semen quality is the number or concentration of sperm cells in a given amount of semen.
An essential function of healthy sperm cells is their ability to swim. Sperm motility is measured as the percentage of moving sperm cells in a sample of semen.
Low levels of testosterone, the male sex hormone, may be responsible for infertility in some men.
It’s not your fault.
Almost every man struggles with these issues at some point in his life. It’s natural for your sexual performance to decline as you age. There are several factors at play, including stress and hormonal changes. Your health can also play a role. Weight gain and cardiovascular issues can affect your ability to perform. If you’re concerned that your health is affecting your performance, you should consult a doctor.
Almost nothing can change your penis size.
Men are often insecure about the size of their penis. Whether this is you or not, it’s important that you never buy a supplement that promises to “add inches.” These pills are almost certainly scams. There are a few exercises and “penis extender” devices that some men swear by, but we at Web Health Wire advise caution. Research suggest these exercises and devices risk severe injury for little (if any) gain. You’re better off working with what you have.
Fast facts on how to increase sperm count:
Exercise and sleep have been shown to improve sperm count.
The first recommended line of treatment is to try non-pharmacologic remedies.
Smoking has long been known to reduce overall health, sperm production, and quality.
Men with very low sperm counts may be prescribed medication.
Your testicles are outside your body because, to produce the best quality sperm, they need to be kept slightly cooler than the rest of you. The ideal temperature for sperm production is around 34.5C, which is slightly below body temperature (around 37C).
If you’re trying to conceive, taking a few simple measures to keep your testicles cool may help. For example, if your job involves working in a hot environment, take regular breaks outside. If you sit still for long periods, get up and move around regularly.
Wearing tight underwear is also thought to increase testicle temperature by up to 1C. Although research has shown that tight underwear does not seem to affect sperm quality, you may want to wear loose-fitting underwear, such as boxer shorts, while trying to conceive.
Diet, weight and exercise
Eating a healthy, balanced diet and maintaining a healthy weight is essential for keeping your sperm in good condition. Your diet should include at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day; carbohydrates such as wholemeal bread and pasta; and lean meat, fish and pulses for protein.
Being overweight (having a body mass index above 25) may affect the quality and quantity of your sperm.
If you’re overweight and trying to conceive, you should try to lose weight by combining healthy eating with regular exercise.
