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.
