One of the major causes of infertility in men is damaged sperm. For sperm to be effective, it must be healthy, and by that, I mean not lacking in anything. Now, the only way to have such sperm is to lead a very healthy lifestyle, and stay away from anything that can cause your health problems. Unfortunately, some men don’t take good care of themselves, and that is why you find them having major issues with reproducing.
As I have mentioned before, to have a healthy sperm, you must stay away from anything that is bad for your health, and that includes…
1. SMOKING EXCESSIVELY
Cigarette and other forms of smoke contain materials that are harmful to the body, and I’m not talking about the lungs only. Smoking too much can also have a negative effect on your sperm quality. However, once you quit the habit, your body begins to make healthier sperm.
2. DRINKING TOO MUCH
There’s that common notion that drinking alcohol helps boost a man’s longevity in bed, but as true as that may be for some people, its long-term effects are harmful to the body. Drinking too much alcohol can reduce the quality of sperm a man makes.
3. ADDING TOO MUCH WEIGHT
Adding too much weight can reduce sperm production, and perhaps, lead to impotence; so stay fit, always. Watch what you eat and make sure you work out often to burn some calories.
4. OVER-WORKING YOURSELF
Overworking yourself will lead to stress, and trust me – that’s not good for you and your reproductive health. According to researchers, stress leads to an abnormally shaped sperm and an immobile sperm. Now, if your sperm has those issues, it’s as good as useless.
5. EXPOSING YOUR BODY TO HEAT
Unless you’re extremely cold, you have no business exposing yourself to heat, and even if cold, there’s a limit to how much heat your body should have. This is because heat isn’t good for your sperm production. It’s advised to keep your body temperature cool always, especially the genital region.
6. EXPOSING YOUR GENITALS TO RADIATION
Radiation can be from a mobile phone; this is why it’s not right to have your phones close to your pant pockets or anywhere near your genitals. According to researchers, mobile phones can cause as much as a 9% drop in sperm sample. Hold your phone in your hands, please.
And those were it, guys. Healthy living isn’t so hard; it starts by loving yourself enough to put your health and wellbeing first. Live healthy, and live happier/ longer today.
