As I am sure you already know, there are many females in America suffering from fertility issues. But did you know that men can have fertility issues? This is quite common actually, 35%-37% of men in America are found to be either sub-fertile or just flat out infertile all together. This number is astounding in comparison to the 10.9% infertility rate in females 15-44 years of age. This puts an average of about 20% of couples, or 1 in every 5 having fertility problems.

However, once the obvious problems with the female have been ruled out, that puts the light in one direction- the male. What is male infertility? Can it be helped naturally? Are there prescription medications to aid the efforts? Is there anything specific that can be done to help the chances go higher?
When it comes to male infertility, it is pretty self explanatory. In this case, it is on the male end that a baby cannot be conceived. The female can be perfectly healthy and be fertile and if the male is not, there will be no baby. There are ways that your doctor can test your fertility, the list below covers the tests that can be done.
A semen analysis is a procedure where the sample is provided by the male in a controlled environment and given to a professional. From there it is tested for shape, size, and count. This is typically the problem with males. The sperm tends to be slower than the average male, taking too long to reach the egg to fertilize it in time or there are not enough spermatozoa per milliliter of seminal fluid.
Hormone problems can be detected here, testicular size can be measured, and varicoceles can be detected (abnormal veins above the testicles).
This test usually comes back okay. Hormonal imbalances cause less than 4% of infertility in men.
A genetic screen san be used to determine if infertility has been an issue in the past with previous family members. This test is performed at different points depending upon who your doctor is.
Once you have singled out the reason you are infertile, you may ask yourself “what caused this?” That’s a good question, and a lot of different options as the answer.
-sperm duct problems
-antibodies attacking sperm
-heavy metal exposure
-illegal drug usage
While some problems can be reversed and you will successfully conceive, not all can be undone. However, if yours can be fixed you may need to take better care of yourself. Below are things to change in your diet while you are trying to conceive. These are not guaranteed to increase sperm count or make you conceive quicker, it is just a great idea to include these while you are trying to conceive.
-No Alcohol (or very little)
Above all else, speak to your doctor first; he or she may be able to help you before you have to take matters into your own hands. If it is something that requires surgery then eating all the above things may not be of any help.
