Does daily masturbation affect fertility, quantity and quality of sperm in the ejaculate?

Does daily masturbation affect fertility, quantity and quality of sperm in the ejaculate?

See answer: Though there is likely some degree of variation from one individual to the next, daily or more frequent ejaculation is likely to diminish to some degree the quantity and quality of the sperm and therefore "potentially" the fertility as well. It is generally felt that 48-72 hours is the ideal time interval to maximize sperm and semen quality. If not trying to conceive, frequency is not an issue.

How to increase sperm fertility naturally?

How to increase sperm fertility naturally?

Improve sperm qual: I agree with others but let me add that there are lifestyle changes that can improve sperm quality. Stop smoking, decrease alcohol, avoid heat situations like hot tubs, saunas and baths; extreme sports can also be a problem. If you are a body builder then no steroids or supplements with androgens (tricky, so read labels carefully). Sperm cycle is 75d, so change takes a while to see results.

Semen Analysis info: The semen analysis is performed on a fresh specimen within 2 hours of collection. Before testing, a period of 2-4 days of abstinence from ejaculation is recommended.

What is the process of counting the male sperm for fertility evaluation?

What is the process of counting the male sperm for fertility evaluation?

Microscopic eval: After liquifaction of the sperm sample an hour or so after ejaculation, a drop is placed in a small measured volume chamber, and sperm count and motility are measured under the microscope. Multiplying these values by the sperm volume gives a total motile sperm count, the best single measure of sperm quality. Many other measures exist. Automated systems are available for semen analysis.

Am I fertile sa normal 64 abnorm 36 on sperm analysis?

Semen analysis: Semen analysis is not a test of fertility rather an evaluation of production of sperm. Even with slight abnormalities fertility may not necessarily be affected. I'm assuming the numbers you are referring to pertain to morphology. If that is the case, those numbers are fine. The remaining numbers referring to count and motility are also important for full assessment.
