Just as it takes two to tango in creating new life, so it falls on both women and men to give themselves the best chance of conceiving, whether naturally or through IVF.
For a man, that means addressing the health of your sperm. You might be uncomfortable even thinking about it and it feels like a delicate subject, but the fact is that male reproductive health is in a crisis.
As odd as it sounds on this crowded planet of ours, sperm quality is in decline. To quote one study, “The economic and societal burden of male infertility is high and increasing.”
Who’s to blame? The usual suspects…
Some of these factors you can’t control. Others you most definitely can.
It’s best to know what shape your sperm are in. Ideally, you should speak to your doctor who can arrange the necessary test.
If the result seems bad, don’t worry. Your body generates a new batch of sperm every three months. The chance to turn this part of your life around and start afresh is always there.
And, despite the worrying trend in male infertility, the numbers are still on your side. It only takes one healthy egg and one healthy sperm (out of 39 million, on average) to conceive.
Whether you’re looking to improve or maintain your semen health, homeopathy can help. I’m not just interested in your sperm count but in you as a person – the way you live your life, your emotional state and your medical background.
All these elements help me to identify what’s affecting your health and your sperm quality in particular.
Among the things I’ll be interested to discuss with you (and you’ll appreciate that some of these fertility factors relate just as much to women) and we’ll strive to help where you are struggling, include…
* Stopping smoking can be difficult but there are many supports and resources like homeopathy available nowadays that can help with the withdrawal process and emotional challenges involved. I also use to smoke and I know how hard it can be. Do talk to me if you are struggling and we can include this as part of your consultation. I can advise on homeopathic detoxes and other remedies for these issues, and assist you in handling tobacco cravings.
Even before we meet, to optimise your sperm quality health there are things you can start doing immediately to begin improvements:
When you make changes to the quality of the sperm, this increases your chances of conceiving. With simple lifestyle adjustments and individualised homeopathic treatment, in just 3 months, men can make significant improvements to their sperm health and increase their chances of fertility success.
