Couples can sometimes focus on the woman’s health when preparing for a baby, and forget about the man’s. But having a baby is a team effort, and men should take measures to optimize their sperm health for the best chance of conceiving.
Why sperm health is important
Sperm have a very demanding role to play in fertilization. The journey sperm undertake on their way to fertilize an egg has been likened to a human trying to swim a journey of several thousand kilometers.
Fortunately, there are some simple steps to take to help give yourselves the best chance of conceiving here.
Taking a while to fall pregnant?
If you are over 35 and have been trying regularly for 6 months or under 35 and been trying regularly for 12 months and have not become pregnant, it's a good idea to check in with your doctor. This can help identify any issues that might be getting in the way of conceiving, and help relieve the anxiety you may both be feeling.
You should seek medical help earlier if:
- A doctor has told either you or your partner that you have fertility problems,
- if you have any questions or concerns about planning pregnancy.
