A man’s fertility is affected by many factors, but some small details and bad habits in life will make a man’s fertility low. These embarrassing things must be avoided. The following editor will tell you how men can improve their fertility. If you want to know, come and have a look.
How to increase male fertility
1. Quit smoking
Smoking can reduce sperm count and damage sperm cell membrane and DNA. Long-term smoking or inhaling second-hand smoke can easily cause male infertility and impotence , female miscarriage and fetal malformation, and smoking cessation can improve semen quality.
2. Don’t stay up late
Because sperm production is mainly carried out at night, sleeping during the day is useless, and staying up late will lead to spermatogenesis disorder, resulting in decreased sperm count, poor motility, increased deformity rate and DNA fragmentation rate, which may easily cause male infertility and female miscarriage. Frequent staying up late can also lead to male reproductive endocrine disorders and decreased immunity, causing sexual dysfunction such as low libido, impotence, premature ejaculation , and prone to chronic prostatitis and epididymitis.
It is recommended that men avoid staying up late and go to bed before 11 pm to ensure an effective sleep time of 8 hours from 11 pm to 7 am.
3. Avoid prolonged sitting
Sedentary or cycling, driving and other behaviors will make men sit for too long, which will cause poor blood circulation in male reproductive organs (testis, epididymis, prostate and seminal vesicles), making men prone to chronic prostatitis and epididymitis, and also As a result, the temperature of the testis will rise, which will directly damage the spermatogenic function of the testis, which will lead to a decrease in sperm quality.
Experts recommend that sedentary men get up and move around at least every half hour.
4. Drink less alcohol
Excessive drinking can affect the production and maturation of sperm, leading to a decline in the ability of sperm to fertilize, and may also cause sexual dysfunction such as low libido, impotence, and premature ejaculation, and easily cause male infertility.
It is recommended to drink less alcohol and not to drink high-grade liquor and foreign wine.
5. Avoid high temperature
The proper temperature for the testis to produce sperm is 1-2 degrees lower than the body temperature (35.6°C~36°C, if the temperature exceeds 37°C, it will cause damage to the sperm), high temperature will seriously damage the spermatogenesis function of the testis. Men in childbearing period should try to avoid wearing tight underwear and thick pants, soaking in hot springs, sauna, putting laptops directly on their laps, etc., and avoid working in high temperature environments such as kitchens and boiler rooms.
