Various other disorders like diabetes mellitus, sexually transmitted disease, anemia as well as Cushing’s disease are known to affect fertility in men hence, should be diagnosed in time. You need to get such medical conditions treated at the earliest to prevent infertility.

5. Keep your surroundings cool

Do you stay in heated conditions for most of the time? Then, it’s time to cool down yourself and your surroundings to a considerable extent. It is recommended that you should keep the body temperature in the range of 97°F to 99°F. Brining fewer changes in your regular lifestyle can successfully do this.

-If your workplace is extremely hot, you can consider walking around every now and then to maintain body temperature.

-Also, avoid keeping the laptop on your lap while working on it. Laptop’s heat can actually heat up the lower part of your midsection thus affecting the scrotal region.

-Always make sure that you make proper effort to keep the temperature around your home and office within the normal range. This will help your body to sustain a favorable environment for the sperms within.

Ashwagandha is also known as Withania somnifera. This Indian medicinal herb is believed to help in improving male fertility in an effective way since decades. It is also useful for individuals who have undergone placebo treatment.

Sperm count can also be improved by including super foods in your diet.

9. Quit Smoking

We already know that smoking is injurious to health. Regular smoking can harm an individual in different ways. The internal systems of the body are affected badly in the long run. So, you need to ensure that you slowly make it a habit to stay away from cigarettes. Smoking affects sperm count, sperm shape as well as the motility of sperms in the long term. So, if you want to prevent fertility issues, then you need to focus on getting rid of it. Also, it affects the success rates of IVF treatment in a negative way.

10. Control soy intake

Soy intake is quite common among men these days. It is good for health in controlled quantities. But then you need to understand that the excessive intake of soy can lead to unnecessary affects on the fertility levels in men. It is highly suggested that you do not consume excessive amount of Soy, if you are already overweight and want to improve your fertility.
