Wearing loose underwear, avoiding taking long hot showers, hot tubs or saunas and taking hormones pills can overcome the male infertility issues.

Abnormal sperm morphology or bad sperm quality can cause infertility. Fertileaids are a supplement which they can try or you can use traditional home remedies to treat this.

My husband used to have thick and yellowish ejaculation before having infertility treatment. Now we can observe the changes and I think I will be able to conceive soon.

My doctor first checked my earlier medications. I was taking very high dose of some stress relieving tablets and so I could not enjoy making love. After leaving them slowly it feels good and my partner is also happy now.

That's why I stress upon the diet and physical fitness of my husband too. Infertility is not just about female infertility but male infertility as well and we all need to know this.

Sexual habits are very important in trying to conceive. Over involvement in sexual activities can cause infertility. Moreover, Inflammation of the testicles, swollen scrotal veins and abnormally developed testicles are the reasons behind abnormal sperms found in men.
