When a couple has been trying to get pregnant for a while without success, it’s often the female partner’s fertility that first receives a question mark. But male infertility is a common problem, and a low sperm count is one of the most frequent reasons why a man cannot get his partner pregnant. Can you increase your sperm count with herbs?
Obese women have a harder time getting pregnant naturally, but are also less likely to achieve success during fertility treatments. Many people are aware of that, but what role does obesity play in male infertility? Are men with a very high BMI unable to get their partner pregnant? How does obesity impact male infertility?
Fertility isn’t just a female issue. Sure, it is the woman who must get pregnant; grow a healthy baby and then give birth, but if her partner doesn’t have quality (or enough) sperm to fertilize her egg, then no pregnancy can happen. What does this mean? In short, men are just as important as women when it comes to conception.
Are you and your partner trying for a baby? If you have immersed yourself into the world of “TTC”, you will no doubt have noticed that most articles and books are directed at women and specifically related to the female body. Yet, the male role in conception is clearly equally important, and while folic acid and a health diet give the future mom and her baby the best start in pregnancy, her partner’s dietary habits have a direct impact on his sperm and fertility, and thus the couple’s chances of conceiving.
