Increase Sperm Count

How to increase sperm count?

Trying to get pregnant longer than one year is considered as infertility.

There are over two million couples around the world having problems with infertility. The numbers are increasing every year. The problem is divided quite equally as one third is due to women, one third because of men and the balance is due to combination of both partners.

(Infertility in women increases by age)

Showers are preferred to baths. For good sperm production testicles prefer cold. It is a good idea to finish showering with cold water on testicles. It maybe not very pleasant but it is worth the result. Sauna has a similar effect, high temperature virtually kills sperms.

Most couples assume more sex equals better chance of pregnancy. That is not so. It is better to have less but quality sex. Again, it is a good idea to have sex every 3-5 days. This will not only increase the volume of ejaculation but quality of sperms as well.
