When a couple is facing difficulties to conceive even after having unprotected intercourse for one year, the condition is termed as Infertility by medical science. In such a case, both the male and female partners are tested. Male fertility is related to sperm and its health. There are three main fertility issues in men related to sperm health. These includes:sperm count

Sperm Count

The chances of conception decrease when the 'sperm count' is less than usual in the male semen. 20 to 40 million sperm per milliliter of ejaculation are the average sperm count but 15 million per milliliter is considered good for being fertile. 

Sperm Morphology

This is a condition in which sperm is not formed completely, i.e. it is unfit for fertilization.

Sperm Motility

Sperm motility is the condition where sperm finds it difficult to navigate through the cervix and make way to the female reproductive system.

As we all know medication is not the only solution for any health problem, we need to change our diet and lifestyle to make our body work better. For example, only medication will never control diabetes, we need to stop intake of sugar, exercise and consume foods which improve our health.

So we have a few pieces of advice for you to improve your health in general and find a solution to how to improve sperm motility in particular.

These phthalates are suspected to lower the sperm health and damage human endocrine hormones. It's always better to get the levels tested and consult a doctor.

Lessons From Our Elder's Lifestyle

Our grandparents were not having all these technologies but still, the life was happier then, they never had major fertility problems and most of them had more than 5 kids. They gave time to their families as they hardly owned a single phone for the entire family. They used to cycle or walk to their workplaces.

Today's generation has no physical exercise. At the workplace, they sit near their desks and at home near TVs or holding Smartphone. An added disadvantage is we eat all the junk foods, party hard and ignore healthy foods.

All the problems related to health, fertility, and relations can be solved by changing your habits and lifestyle. All you need to do is follow a disciplined lifestyle and exercise regularly. Make a habit of Switching off your internets and keeping your phone in flight mode so that you both can peacefully cuddle together and get a nice sleep.
