6 Tips for Healthy Sperm

The fact is that many men don’t think a lot about their sperm until the baby-making tsunami takes over their lives. And even then, your sperm may not be on the top of your list of baby-making concerns. The first thing that may come to mind when the first rumbles of baby lust hits your radar might be worries about money, sleep, and your sex life. The first tremors that baby making may be in your future, is that dinner conversation starts to turn into who is pregnant or having another baby in your social circles. This can lead to strolls in shopping malls, where your woman makes sudden stops in front of baby toy and clothing stores. You may notice that she lingers there, making happy sounds about this cute thing or that darling something or other. Notice, that she presses you for happy sounds as well. You may find babies are being put into your arms at every family function with everyone making chirping sounds about what a good father you would make. Books with baby-making tips and parenting advice may have found their way into your bathroom reading basket. You may have even found “The Top 100 Baby Names” in your email inbox. One thing is for sure, when your lady is ready to make a baby — you will know it. Assuming you are on board with her baby-making desires, be ready to join her in some pre-conception check-ups! In case you didn’t get the memo, men contribute half of the baby-making goods and are also equally responsible when conception does not occur easily. This simple fact is something that many men have happily ignored for centuries, putting the conception burden squarely on the shoulders of the woman. When entering the baby-making arena, it is important to know that it may take up to one year for conception to occur. And approximately 7 million couples will experience conception issues. But before the female goes through a battery of tests (which is usually the first thing that will happen), it’s the manly thing to do to check your sperm count to see if it’s normal or low. It’s estimated that only 20 percent of you (men) in couples struggling to conceive have this test early on or at all. What’s more, almost half of all infertility problems are directly attributed to the male, and most of them are mainly due to low sperm count. So, before you start your baby-making engines, you want to be in the best possible shape to conceive. Next: Healthy Sperm Tips

7. Don't carry your mobile in the trousers pocket. The radio waves work like a contraception. (But don't count on it :-) )
