What Every Man Should Know About Fertility

Most of the times, a man believes that conception and pregnancy is all about women thus ignoring fertility related treatments. Male fertility is as important as woman fertility to achieve the status of parenthood. Infertility is defined as not being able to start or maintain a pregnancy. For a man, it means that he cannot father a child. Here are the things that every man should know about fertility.

What Every Man Should Know About Fertility

Lifestyle factors can impact male fertility

Your diet, health and work environment matters when it comes to male fertility. For men trying to conceive, eliminate tobacco, alcohol and caffeine in your daily health habits. Smoking is connected to erectile dysfunction and can decrease sperm production; alcohol and caffeine have been associated with decreased sperm function as toxins damage the sperm. Stress and obesity can cause hormone changes that affect fertility.

Stay away from heat

High temperatures are bad for your healthy sperm. It has been found that heat from hot tubs, saunas, hot long showers, heating pads and electric blankets could cause your testicles to become too hot which decreases sperm quantity. Do not wear extremely tight shorts or underwear regularly as it can also have negative impact on your sperm quality.

Male infertility is more common than you think

Male infertility is indeed a common thing found in males. Couples are advised to seek treatment if they fail to conceive after a year of unprotected sex. It is also important for you to seek medical treatment as about third of infertile couples have male factor infertility.

Age matters in men too

You may already know that female fertility decreases with the increase in age. It becomes almost impossible for women to conceive, by the age of 40. However, research has found that with increased age, male fertility and sperm health decreases, though not as drastically as in women. The older a man gets, the less fertile he gets. It has been also observed that increased male age is linked to increased rates of autism and schizophrenia.
