What HE Should Do Before You Get Pregnant

couple

Women know that being healthy pre-pregnancy allows for a better chance of conceiving and experiencing a healthy pregnancy. So, for couples planning on getting pregnant, there is no doubt that women are more likely to be extra mindful of pre-pregnancy preparation; but really, there are several pre-pregnancy things a man should do as well. Below, you will find tips to help a man prepare!

Protect Your Testicles

Gentlemen, protect your testicles. Take more walks then bike rides, wear looser jeans, and limit your time in the hot tub. Activities that have the potential to wallop or overheat the testicles can be killer to your sperm count.

Knowledge

Did you know that a fertile ejaculation contains a sperm count of thirty-nine million? Even though that is a tremendous amount of sperm, only a select few will ever come close to fertilizing an egg. Sperm that aren’t normal (the slow movers, and the ones with misshapen heads or tails) are less likely to attach to an egg. The more you educate yourself, the better prepared you will be.

Giving Up and Giving In

Give up excessive alcohol, tobacco, recreational substances, junk food, and inactivity. Give in to a wholesome diet, regular exercise, and more sleep. Exposure to harsh chemicals like paint, fertilizers, pesticides, and harsh solvents should be avoided, or at least used with extreme caution. Following these suggestions will help support a fertile sperm count.
