How to ensure the quality of man’s sperm

Men’s semen quality may be associated with changes in the seasons

The semen of men suffering from infertility was analyzed over 32 months. Researchers found that sperm head abnormalities were common in the fall but not in spring. This is because, during the hot summer months, scrotal temperature is high. So come the fall, semen with such sperm head deformities is released. Increased sperm head defects may be associated with elevated scrotal temperature.

In summer, the proportion of immature sperm is higher than in other seasons, due to the heat. In winter however, sperm tail defects are common, so spring shows the highest frequency of sperm tail defects. Such sperm has poor motility, making egg fertilization difficult. Overall, the highest sperm counts were found in winter, followed by spring; sperm activity is strongest in autumn and winter.

More sun makes healthier sperm

Australian experts examined the blood of nearly 800 men suffering from infertility problems, and found that levels of vitamin D were below normal in nearly a third of them. Vitamin D plays an important role in improving the quality of sperm, and the sun is the main source of vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency is prevalent among men who cannot make their partner pregnant.

Researchers analyzed an important factor in male fertility ─ sperm DNA fragmentation, and the results were astonishing. It was obvious that infertility is associated with cytotoxicity ─ amino acid homocysteine levels in the blood increase, while new healthy cells lack important folic acid. Men who made lifestyle changes and took vitamin D supplements saw their infertility problems significantly improve. We know that vitamin D and folic acid deficiencies are related to women’s infertility but the results of this research carried out on men is surprising.

In another study that tested 794 men, 58% had a higher frequency of DNA breaks. 100 men agreed to quit smoking, minimize caffeine and alcohol intake or completely avoid these two substances, lose weight, and increase their levels of vitamins and antioxidants within three months before the start of fertility treatment. The results showed that the majority of sperm quality significantly improved, 40% of men achieved clinical pregnancy, and 11% conceived naturally.

To nurture a healthy baby starts from the culture of quality sperm. These are some factors that affect sperm quality:

1. Smoking and alcohol
2. High testicular temperature
3. Obesity
4. Too frequent sexual intercourse
5. Diet
6. Sexually transmitted diseases

Is washing female private parts with water the safest?

There was a time when a variety of genital cleaning supplies appeared on the market, and women used them for the health of their private parts. Then, one often heard of female compatriots somewhere, washing with a certain brand of lotion every day, with vulva and vaginal drying as a result. After listening to these reports, one gets the impression that washing the private parts with water is the safest. Even if it does not make you well, at least it is not bad!

Advocates of washing with water do so in order to prevent disorderly use of medication, but this cannot be taken out of context.

Over a period of time, the practice of cleaning with water daily was widespread, and it became the routine cleaning dogma for many women, to the exclusion of all other private parts cleaning products. Experts pointed out: “The so-called water only advice is aimed at women who use medication without a doctor’s permission. In order to reduce the harm caused by disorderly use, we support the use of water.” The idea that you must use water only, and cannot use other cleaning products, is a misunderstanding of the intent of the doctors. It is just a lack of expediency in the correct cleaning products and methods in the market, and not a real solution.

Women must have a clear and correct understanding that routine cleans are of the vulva, and not a gynecological vaginal wash. In order to prevent the use of indiscriminate methods, especially in cases of self-medication that bring a lot of unnecessary trouble, professionals suggest that women use water. But this is not to say that other products are not to be used, such a view is one-sided.

The skin of female private parts has four characteristics: a lot of dirt accumulation; concealed parts means poor ventilation, and wearing jeans, leggings, and chemical fiber underwear lead to an even more sultry environment. A stuffy environment can lead to the infestation of a variety of bacterial secretions, which produces an unpleasant odor and can be dangerous. Moreover, the skin of the private parts is missing the granular layer and stratum corneum, and there are more abundant nerves and blood vessels. The pH value of its weak microenvironment is also different from other parts of the body, leaving it vulnerable to damage from alkali and other secretions of sweat. Water is not appropriate protection for such delicate and sensitive skin. Residual secretions would further damage the skin, and if you cannot remove the dirt, you cannot stop the development of bacteria further into the body. It can be said that a lack of private parts cleaning is the main cause of gynecological inflammation. So how do women effectively clean their private parts? Non-medicated lotions with conservative ingredients are a good choice.
