You may be interested to know that difficulties in conceiving come from men as well as women. It is estimated that in Spain there are some 600,000 couples with fertility problems.
In some 240,000 cases, the cause is female, in many others it is male, and in another 120,000, the origin of the problem is never known. For difficulty getting pregnant this is important.
An Accurate Diagnosis
Male infertility can occur when there is a decrease in sperm count, when sperm cannot be released, or when they don’t “work” properly.
How can you know that the semen is fine? In pharmacies you can buy a test that measures the concentration of sperm in semen.
- However, to achieve a completely reliable diagnosis, the correct thing is to perform a spermiogram in a medical center, which will tell us the volume of semen, the number of sperm and how many of them have a correct appearance in both shape and movement.
- Scientific studies show that people who have more concerns about time, work or money are less fertile than those who live more relaxed.
- For this reason, couples with problems getting pregnant should take a good vacation, provided they know how to choose a quiet destination.
People who have more worries are less fertile than those who live relaxed
Stress hormones are opposite to those of sexuality and fertility, because in nature animal organisms interpret emotional stress as being synonymous with an environment not favorable for procreation.
In this way, the human body is designed so that, if the conditions are not favorable, procreation is deferred until a better time comes. Therefore, the type of stress that really should be avoided is sustained stress.
Choose well what we eat
The optimal diet for reproduction is the same that we should follow to be healthy, although there may be nuances in terms of vitamins and trace elements essential for fertility.
