Check Your Weight:

Being underweight or overweight can have negative effects on a man's sperm. It is important to have an ideal BMI and not go over your ideal weight or lower than your required weight, as it will affect you in a multiple ways.


Folate Is Necessary For Men Too:

It is not only the women who require folate. Men too should have a good folate rate in their body, which can be derived from green vegetables like spinach and kale. Lower levels of folic acid can lead to an abnormal chromosome in a man's sperm.


Kill The Bad Habit:

Smoking cigarettes can cause a low sperm count and slow-moving sperms. So, if you are a smoker or even a passive smoker, it is time to quit the butt today.


Say No To Beer Too:

Alcohol is not good for men to drink, especially if you're planning on having a baby. Studies have showed that alcohol has properties that can reduce the sperm production and cause sperm abnormalities.


Keep Stress At Bay:

Stress can increase the abnormal sperms and reduce the concentration of healthy sperms too. Therefore, doctors advice couples not to take or undergo any form of stress, as it is not good for the man and woman.


Check Those Meds:

Did you know that there are some medications that can affect the quality or quantity of a man's sperm? So if you're under a medication, it is necessary to check with your doctor about the effects it can have, specially if you're planning for a little one.


A Toxic Environment:

Toxic chemicals are harmful and can cause a lot of health problems. Toxic metals like lead and chemical solvents can increase the percentage of damaged sperms. Therefore, stay away from the toxic components or be careful while you workaround these chemicals.
