What are some supplements I can take to increase the volume of my sperm? I only ejaculate a small amount and want to produce more and thicker.

What are some supplements I can take to increase the volume of my sperm? I only ejaculate a small amount and want to produce more and thicker.

No such thing. . .: Contrary to what is promised by dietary supplement manufacturers, there are no supplements proven to increase the volume of your semen or increase sperm count. Rather than focus on this single aspect of your health, eat smart, eg plenty of fruits & veggies w/lean protein (check out Mediterranean & DASH diets), and exercise regularly to improve overall health. Don't smoke (or quit if you do).

When I ejaculate there is hardly any semen, is there a way to boost sperm volume with a vitamin supplement?

When I ejaculate there is hardly any semen, is there a way to boost sperm volume with a vitamin supplement?

Not really: A healthy male will produce just what his body is to produce. Unless you have some hormonal or genetic problem or other issue, there isn't anything specific to prescribe. The testis, prostate, seminal vessicles and other glands produce a cerain amount at a certain rate. If you have poor nutrition, a multivitamin/mineral may help. Stay hydrated, stay healthy and cut back frequency of sex.

May I know the supplements in order to increase the number of sperm and to recover the varicocelectomy incision?

May I know the supplements in order to increase the number of sperm and to recover the varicocelectomy incision?

No...: No known supplement will improve sperm production and number although some in the market or online may tout and claim their ability to do so, usually just suggested at best in animal study, but never proved in humans. As to incision after varicocelectomy, what is your concern, pain or size/color of scar? For any of these, talk with your surgeon timely. Best...

What are some natural fertility supplements for males to enhance sperm?

What are some natural fertility supplements for males to enhance sperm?

Male fertility: There aren't any male fertility treatments that are FDA approved that I'm aware of. Your partner will need to avoid tight fitting underwear or pants. He will need to avoid whirlpools and saunas as well because heat kills sperm. Certain medications like steroids can cause male infertility and should be avoided too. I would recommend your partner see his doctor as well. Good luck.

Vitamins maybe: There are certain vitamins that may be helpful for male fertility and many these are contained in special male fertility vitamins sold online. However, this analysis is abnormal but not that far off. The priority should be to evaluate the female partner.

Herbals.Male infertility is a complex issue possible cause include hormone imbalance, sperm duct defects, infections, varicocele, ejaculation issues (e.g:retrograde ej), anti-sperm antibodies, using anabolic steroids.Previous operations that block sperm fr.

Is there an herbal supplement to help semen/sperm health?

Is there an herbal supplement to help semen/sperm health?

None proven to help: Men who are worried about their sperm and semen are usually trying to have a baby, so may end up buying and taking supplements advertised to help sperm, just for the extra ounce of hope. The uncertain amounts of l-carnitine, vit. E, folic acid, vit. C, or coenzyme q10 that may be in the supplements, along with uncertain amounts of "other" ingredients, have not been proven to help sperm or semen.

I take C4 extreme pre-workout supplement, is this product known to effect sperm quality or lower count?

Not known: It's banned by the NCAA and NFL because of the risk of heartbeat irregularities. I'd worry about that before I worried about sperm count. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!

Will a pre workout supplement called no explode lower sperm count?

Will a pre workout supplement called no explode lower sperm count?

NO-Xplode: The no stands for nitrous oxide. There are always a possibility of side effects with workout supplements (they are not as closely regulated as medicines are.), but I haven't seen any mention of decrease in sperm count. This supplement is not supposed to be used for long periods of time.

How to regain sperm in body? In my body there is low amount of semen I want to increase volume. How much time would it take?

How to regain sperm in body? In my body there is low amount of semen I want to increase volume. How much time would it take?

Sperm is: Produced continuously. Why do you want to increase the volume? What purpose do you think it will serve? How do you know there's anything wrong in the first place. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet. Let your body be as normal as it can be. Stay healthy and avoid alcohol/tobacco, opiates/anabolics.

Sperm volume low; is there any way to increase the volume/amount? Low sperm volume when ejaculating.

Sperm volume low; is there any way to increase the volume/amount? Low sperm volume when ejaculating.

Low: Low semen volume may be a hormonal issue (low testosterone), or may rarely be due to retrograde ejaculation where part of the ejaculate 'shoots backwards' into the bladder instead of out the normal way. Diabetics and men on high blod pressure medications are at more risk of retrograde ejaculation. See a reproductive endocrinologist if you are concerned, especially if you are trying to conceive.

My sperm count is 11 million and volume is 8.5 ml. I know the count is low and I only had 1 test done. Is that low a super or average low. Thanks?

Repeat test: Repeat test under standard conditions. Results can vary widely from one test to another and particularly from one lab to another. Try several before making decisions.

In the last few days. I have been experiencing low sperm volume. I'm 22. do I need to worry abt this? Can I become father easily. I'm still virgin.

Don't worry: Semen volume doesn't necessarily mean low sperm count but more often reflects how often you ejaculate and whether you are dehydrated. Don't worry about it.
