Most men don’t even think about fertility until they want kids. One in six couples has fertility problems and rates appear to be rising. A large study found that the average sperm count has fallen over recent years, but it is not clear whether this translates into lower birth rates. Other possible causes could include environmental pollutants, the effects of medication or the tendency for a couple to be older when starting a family.
Infertility affects 1 in 20 men (5%). But 20% of men have low sperm count and 2-3% produce no sperm at all. A low sperm count is the cause of infertility in about 20% of couples.

Below are 9 simple things you can do to improve your fertility:
1. Aim To Have S3x Every Other Day
If you ej*culate very regularly (say, daily), the testes cannot keep up sperm production fast enough, so fewer sperm are in the semen. It is also not advisable to ‘store’ up the sp*rm, as this can result in lower numbers of active, healthy sp*rm in the semen.
2. Maintain A Healthy Weight And Improve Your Diet
Being overweight can affect your sperm and increases the risk of developing blood-flow problems that may affect your erections. Even if you are of a healthy weight you should still eat a broad, healthy diet – high in fruit and vegetables and low in fat. Aim to drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of liquid a day.
3. Exercise Regularly
Regular exercise may help fertility by controlling body weight and relieving stress.
4. Don’t Smoke
Smoking affects sperm counts but it is not known what effect this has on male fertility. However, stopping smoking will improve your general health and your life expectancy.
5. Chill out
Stress, be it physical or emotional has wide-ranging effects on the body. It is well known to affect erectile function and may well affect fertility. Over 80% of couples conceive after one year and over 90% of couples conceive after two years of unprotected s3x. Set aside time for you and your partner to relax.

6. Watch What You Drink
There should be a moderate intake of alcohol. Drinking excessively can adversely affect sperm quantity and quality.
7. Consider Your Job
Certain jobs can affect fertility, for example, the pesticides used by agricultural workers or even the vibrations felt by engine drivers.
8. Check Your Medication
Ask your Doctor about the effects on fertility and s3xual function of any medicines. Fertility can be affected by various medications, for example, those for high blood pressure or depression.
9. Don’t Cramp Your Style
Sitting for long periods of time, or regular hot baths can raise the temperature in the testicles reducing sperm production. However, contrary to popular belief wearing tight underwear does not affect sperm production. A study comparing men wearing tight briefs with men wearing loose boxers showed no difference in sperm counts.
