Your reports are suggestive of a low sperm count. Specific gravity of semen is more than water so it will sink to the bottom. These following steps can help with increase in your sperm count: - Reduce your toxic load by minimising your exposure to: Radiation: keep your mobile phone and laptop away from your groin Chemicals: including those found in glues, cleaning products, dry cleaned clothing, paint, paint strippers, photo copy machine toners, silicones, chemical dusts and pesticides, and recreational and pharmaceutical drugs. - Quit smoking as smokers are 60% more likely to be infertile than non-smokers - Manage stress by methods such as yoga, meditation or tai chi - Limit alcohol consumption as even a moderate intake of 1-5 drinks per week increases the risk of infertility - Eat well by making sure you’re getting enough of the following nutrients: Good fats, specifically Omega 3’s found in cold water oil fish like salmon and mackerel. And steer clear of trans fats like those found in margarine and fast food. Incorporate whole grains, nuts and dark, leafy green veggies into your diet and rich in phytonutrients, antioxidants and fertility nutrients such as Zinc, selenium and magnesium. Vitamin C: broccoli, citrus fruits, aloe vera juice, raw cabbage. Vitamin E: almonds, apricot oil, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds. Beta-Carotene: carrots, yellow and greenish yellow vegetables and spinach. Folate: beans, green leafy veg, lentils sprouts Coenzyme Q10 - Maintain a healthy weight as per your BMI as being overweight significantly reduces male fertility and can also increase the risk of erectile dysfunction by 30-90%. This increases even more in couples in which both partners are overweight.
