Maintaining Sperm Wellness

Updated: Sep 19, 2023

Healthy sperm is important when people plan to have a baby. Sperm count (the quality of sperm), sperm motility (movement), and sperm morphology (shape) are the elements affecting the possibility of conceiving and having a healthy baby.





What factors can affect sperm quality?


The sperm quality is determined by several factors such as age, weight, lifestyle, health conditions, and environmental and occupational hazards. For example, smoking has a negative effect on sperm count and semen amount. Heavy drinking affects the quality of the sperm.

Generally speaking, males who are over 40 produce fewer healthy sperm than younger men. Sperm count is lower and the sperm can’t move properly if a male is overweight.



How to protect your sperm?


Taking care of your sperm involves taking regular physical exercises, adopting a nutritious diet, quitting smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, and reducing alcohol consumption. Additional measures to protect sperm health include refraining from hot baths, opting for loose-fitting underwear, etc.





When is a semen analysis needed?


Semen analysis may be recommended by the doctor if a couple has trouble falling pregnant. If a male has a low sperm count, a doctor may prescribe medications or suggest other treatment methods. Supplements such as black seeds, folic acid, etc. have shown potential benefits to improve sperm count and quality.
