Talk about how the man prepare for conception, and not touch the topic of addictions would be weird. About the dangers of nicotine and alcohol are known to everyone. This is a problem with the respiratory system, and blood. But for our topic is an issue of influence of these substances on reproductive function and health of the unborn child. Drugs, nicotine, alcohol significantly reduces the quantity and quality of sperm. This is a logical and natural mechanism limiting the breeding of unhealthy animals.Hardening and sports beneficial to the health of the future father. They not only strengthen the body, but also help to improve the functioning of reproductive organs. However, from hot baths and saunas during the period of preparation for the conception of a child should be abandoned. And in General high temperature not useful to the testes. For the same reason you should avoid tight-fitting clothes. And the best underwear for reproductive health is recognized as boxers. :) :) :)

As couples prepare for pregnancy, it is easy to focus only on the woman’s health. However, there are several habits men need to be forming during these critical months of preparation too. Issues of fertility do not rest solely on the female. According to the Organization of Teratology Information Services (OTIS), “Agents that may cause birth defects do not reach the developing fetus through the father as they do from the pregnant mother,” but we do know that male exposure to certain substances can lead to some preliminary problems with fertility and also slightly elevate the risk of certain birth defects. Male infertility alone accounts for approximately 1/3 of all infertility cases. Should fertility issues arise, you should plan ahead to be in the best physical condition to conceive.

It is time to find a health care provider you feel comfortable with to get started with a pre-conception appointment. Eliminate as many medications from your routine as possible. Talk with your physician about your prescription medications. You may need to discontinue use or try something new. Tagamet (cimetidine), sulfasalazine, and nitrofurantoin are used to treat ulcers, gastrointestinal problems, and urinary tract infections. These medications may impact sperm production and sperm count. Steroids, such as prednisone and cortisone, which are used to treat asthma, arthritis and skin conditions, impact male fertility. Chemotherapy and radiation could cause sterility or a significant change in sperm quality and quantity.

Take a good look at your work environment! Your work environment may be a contributing factor to your fertility. According to the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, ongoing exposure to certain agents such as pesticides, chemical fertilizers, lead, nickel, mercury, chromium, ethylene glycol ethers, petrochemicals, benzene, perchloroethylene, and radiation can lower sperm quality, quantity and possibly lead to infertility or miscarriage. Eat and Sleep! What you eat can make a difference. Find out what your proper weight range should be and make the necessary dietary and exercise changes to get there. Studies suggest that some men with low sperm count also have a zinc deficiency. The following foods are high in zinc and could increase your fertility: Meat. Wholegrain cereals. Seafood. Eggs. Selenium, which is found in Brazil nuts. Mushrooms.

Adding more vitamin E may also help the process along. There are Male Fertility Supplements available containing vitamins, minerals and other ingredients designed to help improve overall reproductive health. Also, keep in mind getting plenty of rest is good for everything that ails you, even low sperm count and sperm quality. Avoid alcohol and other substances. Eliminate alcohol, tobacco, marijuana and any illicit drugs. Too much alcohol may reduce zinc levels, and drugs decrease sperm quality. There is some research that may link smoking and certain rare heart defects, but further studies must be done to make an accurate conclusion. Marijuana has been proven to affect sperm quality and sperm count, but there is no evidence that shows that marijuana causes birth defects.

Keep your testicles cool. Heat from hot tubs, saunas, long showers (more than 30 minutes), heating pads, electric blankets, and tight clothing like briefs and spandex could cause your testicles to become too hot, which decreases sperm quantity. Stay away from cycling. Cycling can cause a lot of friction and jostling, which increases the temperature of your testicles. The rise in temperature and possibility of injury may cause a low sperm count. Do keep in mind that you are getting healthy along the way and preventing many other major medical complications. Do take a multivitamin, male fertility supplement or even a pre-natal vitamin! Consider taking an at home fertility test to give you more peace of mind. Do be romantic. Life will change (in a good way) after a baby comes. But it will never be just like it is now. Enjoy every moment together.

It takes two to make a baby. Although a woman will carry and deliver the child, a man also has a leading role in pregnancy. For fertilization to occur, his sperm must be healthy and strong enough to reach and penetrate the woman's egg. To make this process happen, a man must be able to have and keep an erection, possess enough sperm that are the right shape and move in the right way, and have enough semen to carry the sperm to the egg, suggests the U.S. Office on Women's Health. A problem in any step in this process can cause trouble conceiving. A variety of factors, from genetics and lifestyle to environmental exposures and hormones, can affect a man's fertility, so it's difficult to isolate the exact cause for infertility. When asked for his most important recommendation for men who want to start a family.

Before understanding the best practices for getting pregnant, it's important to first understand the male's role in the creation of sperm and the fertilizing of the egg. The male reproductive system includes the testicles, which produce testosterone and sperm. It takes roughly 72 days for sperm to be created, and sperm are stored in the epididymis (the outer structure of the testicles) for anywhere from 15 to 25 days. Here, the sperm mature and develop the ability to swim. When a male ejaculates, the sperm move through the vas deferens tubes of the penis. The liquid for "swimming" is provided by the seminal vesicles and prostate gland. The sperm then move through the woman's cervix, into the uterus and up into the fallopian tubes.

Studies have suggested that couples in which the man is overweight or obese and the woman is of normal weight take longer to conceive than couples with no weight problems. Some research has also shown that being overweight or obese affects a man's sperm quality, reducing sperm counts and decreasing their ability to swim, as well as increasing damage to genetic material (DNA) in sperm, according to The American Society for Reproductive Medicine. A recent study found that overweight and obese men were more likely to have low sperm counts or a lack of viable sperm compared with normal-weight men, possibly making it harder for these men to father a child. The researchers suspect that too much body fat may be linked with changes in testosterone and other reproductive hormone levels in men.

Effectively managing chronic medical conditions, such as high blood pressure and diabetes, may improve a man's chances of getting his partner pregnant, suggests the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. Other medical conditions, such as cystic fibrosis or varicoceles (enlarged veins in the scrotum that cause overheating), may also affect male fertility, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition, some medications used to treat high blood pressure (beta blockers), depression and anxiety (SSRIs), pain (long-term opiates), and an enlarged prostate (finasteride) could have a negative influence on fertility. Supplemental testosterone can also decrease sperm production. Some chemotherapy drugs and radiation treatments for cancer can cause permanent infertility.

A man should speak to his doctor if the medication he is taking might interfere with his ability to father a child. The role of diet in male fertility is unclear. Even though the science may be inconclusive, it still makes sense for men to eat a variety of healthy foods, including plenty of fruits and vegetables, which are rich sources of antioxidants that may help to produce healthy sperm. Men should also consume fiber-rich foods, healthy monounsaturated fats and moderate amounts of lean protein. Men frequently ask him whether drinking soda can decrease their sperm counts. He said he tells them there's no good evidence to support that caffeine has any effect on men's fertility. Get regular physical activity! Get regular exercise because it helps reduce stress, makes men feel better about themselves and benefits their long-term health.
