Masturbation can be a healthy release but can be detrimental if done compulsively or enough to cause irritation. If so, consider other outlets like meditation and exercise. ...Read more

How to increase the sperm count and to have healthy sperms. Its been 2 years of my marriage but still trying for baby. My wife is fit & normal.

Not needed: Unless you have measured your sperm count at least twice and it is severely low there would be no reason to worry about that at all. And only certain medications after testing can be used to increase the number if severely low. Just because a woman's tests look fine does not mean you need more sperm. Usually the issue is you need help getting the eggs and sperm to work correctly. ...Read more

See a Fertility MD: Weight loss, quitting smoking and heavy alcohol may help. Abnormal semen analysis always needs a 2nd test 1-2 months later for confirmation. Based on how low the count and/or sperm quality tests like motility and morphology are, we may do hormonal or genetic blood work. In some guys tablets or rarely shots can increase count. I recommend seeing a reproductive endocrinologist, and/or a urologist. ...Read more
