Spotlight on Male Fertility
You may have noticed that there has been quite a lot in the media recently about male fertility following the airing of the BBC programme Me, My Brother, and Our Balls. It is still available on BBC iPlayer for those that have not seen it and worth a watch. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p08rkzcq. Male fertility is a subject that is not often spoken about amongst men, so it was great to see it covered in depth in this programme.
When it comes to infertility there is a lot of focus on the female side. This, however, is only half of the equation, it takes two to make a baby, so sperm health is equally significant. It is important that both partners work on their fertility as in 30-40% of cases the cause of infertility can be male factor.
Poor sperm quality can be a contributor to miscarriage. Therefore, the time before conception is ideal for men to do everything they can to support their sperm quality. If your sperm results come back as less than favourable, and quite often there is always room for improvement even if you are told they are normal, there is fortunately plenty that can be done to improve this.
As it takes around one hundred days to mature a batch of sperm from start to finish this is the minimum amount of time you should be working on your health to ensure the best chance of conception. During this time what can you do to support your fertility? Click here to read the full article.
