I'm 25, male. What can I do now to increase fertility after marriage? I-e to increase sperm count. What kind of food & life style will help?

Herbs & supplements: At least 3 herbs have been proven in published studies to improve sperm count and motility: maca, tongkat ali & mucuna pruriens. There is also evidence that ginseng, ashwagandha and tribulus may be helpful. Reliable standardized extracts are available. Other nutrients like zinc & l-carntine/acetly-l-carnitine can help too. See http://www. Raysahelian. Com/fertility.Html for a summary of research.

Can smoking marijuana affect a males sperm count or fertility?

Can smoking marijuana affect a males sperm count or fertility?

Yes: In men it can lower testosterone hormone levels and can reduce sperm counts and quality - lower motility (swimming ability) and possibly less ability for the sperm to fertilize an egg. Heavy use is probably worse than occasional use, so it's best for him to quit if possible, or cut down if unable to quit.

No effect: On sperm count and fertility. The only effect masturbation have is a pleasure and actually many health benefits. Remember that saying: "If masturbation lead to hair loss, just about everyone on the planet would be bald". Shouldn't be any problem. However, moderation is the key.

Sir how many masturbation in month are save? Which can not effect my fertility and sperm count?

Change your focus: If you change your focus from masturbation, which for some has a negative implication, to just sex, you can answer this yourself. It has the same effect on your body. The human drive & reserve to reproduce replaces any material lost in any episode.

Pls what fertility medicine could you recommend for someone who has been tested for low sperm count and motility.

Here are some. ..: The most reasonable bid is follow up the care plan with the treating Doc so to consider other factors which may contribute to low sperm count and motility before acting since the info provided is not enough to draw conclusion for prescribing Rx.

Can extensive fasting have adverse effect on fertility and sperm count? What can be the causes and effects of regular ejaculation in child bearing?

Can extensive fasting have adverse effect on fertility and sperm count? What can be the causes and effects of regular ejaculation in child bearing?

No for short term...: From what I know, fasting would not impact fertility and sperm count until the extreme end-stage of malnutrition and dying. Ejaculation to shoot the sperm-containing semen into birth canal is the natural must to make women pregnant. But remember viable sperms move and travel to where is suitable for their survival to fertilize the egg. Of course, the women receiving semen get to be functional...
