Six Tips to Solve Male Fertility Problems
If you think that infertility is a problem exclusive to women, you got another thing coming. It is true that female infertility issues make up 40% of the total infertility cases in couples, however that percentage is outweighed by the fact that male fertility issues are also at about 40%. The remaining 20% is attributed to unknown infertility or idiopathic infertility.
Gentlemen, prepare yourselves!
An astonishing new study revealed a correlation between physical exercise and male fertility. Experts found that men with moderate exercise routine (roughly translates to an hour of exercise, three times a week) had better sperm count and motility than those with intense exercise programs, such as triathletes or marathon runners.
This means that even men without extreme exercise regimen may be doing physical activities that somewhat promote male infertility and hinder conception.
So basically what this tells us is that excessive exercise programs without proper recuperation time may negatively affect sperm count, motility as well as morphology. We all know that it only takes a single sperm to penetrate and fertilize an egg, but keeping your sperm healthy and strong will significantly increase the chances of pregnancy.
No one can deny the benefit of physical exercise in promoting your overall health and fitness, however when exercises are done extremely or excessively, or when you don’t take into account the importance of proper resting time, the stress you put on your body can cause cellular damage.
