Local solutions to building male fertility

03 November 2014, 23:04 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Like women, male fertility decreases with age but more subtly.  

Most of the time we always hear about the biological clock ticking and it refers to the woman and rarely the men. That is because for women we know about the menopause and also the fact that when a woman reaches a certain age, where it is just cutoff. The man’s on the other hand it is gradual and the better he takes care of himself; foods he eats as well as fitness the better chances of him reproducing even at an older age. That is why you do not see men panicking, be it at forty, fifty even eighty a man can still reproduce.


Daily ejaculation improves sperm quality by 12%

I do not know if this will work as a push for men to demand for more sex even blowjobs or even watch more porn. But an Australian study showed that ejaculating daily for seven days improved sperm quality by reducing the amount of DNA damage. It may reduce the sperm volume but not only does it not compromise their motility but improves it significantly.


Vegetarians and Vegans may have poorer sperm count

You know how you may be preaching for your significant other to eat more vegetables and less meat even no meat. You may actually be affecting his sperm count. A study by a medical school; Loma Linda University, found that men who do not eat meat have significantly lower sperm counts not only that but while sixty percent of a meat eaters sperm is active, only a third of a vegetarians sperm is active reducing the probability of their sperm fertilizing the egg.


A pint of alcohol or wine is good for your fertility but coffee is not good

Not guzzling it down, but a bottle of Tusker or a glass or two of wine can improve a man’s fertility as well as his sexual performance. There is your perfect excuse for going to the bar in the evening if you are trying to conceive.

On the other hand, the same study showed that coffee drinkers should reduce the amount of coffee they take as even two cups of coffee slashes the chances significantly.
