How to increase Sperm in the body naturally? : Lifestyle Change :

With a healthy diet plan, you should also follow some healthy practices, which can help you in finding a way on how to increase sperm quantity.

1- Say No To Drugs/Alcohol:

Alcohols and drugs have adverse effects on male fertility. They may lower down your sperm count. If you are a chain smoker or drink alcohol frequently then you may be producing infertile or unhealthy sperm.  Avoid smoking or drinking if you are trying to increase your sperm count.

2- Stay Fit and  Comfortable:

A man’s reproductive organs like scrotum should remain cool as an elevated temperature can cause damage to the sperms.  Avoid jerking and jumping while riding a bike or a bicycle. You should also avoid tight fitted clothes, as your skin may not breathe properly with such clothing. Tight clothing often results in an elevated temperature in scrotum, which can possibly kill fertile sperms present in your scrotum. Switch to boxers instead of skintight inner wears.

3- Avoid Hot Baths:

It is important to keep your scrotum cool to increase your sperm count. Avoid taking hot baths and saunas for around or more than 30 minutes as they can make your scrotum warm and can even kill your sperms.

4- No Stress And An Adequate Rest: 

Stress and anxiety can disturb your hormonal balance and you may produce infertile sperms. Take proper and uninterrupted sleep of at least 7-8 hours can help in increasing the sperm count. Taking proper rest for several hours can help your body to regain energy and boost metabolism. Yoga and Meditation forms effective stress busters.

5- Avoid Contact with Chemicals and Toxins:

Avoid direct contact with harmful chemicals or radiations. Harmful radiations and chemicals can damage your sperm. Under hazardous conditions at work, wear a mask and other safety equipment to protect your skin from exposure of harsh chemicals or intoxicants.

6- Avoid Artificial Lubricants: 

Don’t use artificial lubricants during sexual intercourse as they can harm your healthy or fertile sperms. They may also lower down sperm motility. Saliva or chemically treated lubricants can obstruct movement of the sperms. If necessary, you can use natural lubricants like vegetable oil or peanut oil during sexual intercourse.

Points to note:

  • Follow a healthy diet with lot of minerals, folic acids to regulate your hormonal balance.
  • Eat more bananas and walnuts to increase your sperm count.
  • Avoid hot baths and saunas to increase sperm quantity.
