    In an Oxford England journal published in December 2016, an
    article “Men’s knowledge of their own fertility: a population-
    based survey examining the awareness of factors that are
    associated with male infertility” posited that male factors,
    such as low sperm count and abnormal sperm morphology,
    are primary or contributing causes in almost half of the
    diagnosed cases of infertility. Men were less knowledgeable
    about how daily activities and excessive heat sources, such as
    the use of laptops and frequent hot tub use, can impact male
    These findings highlight the importance of educating
    men about such health risks in order to address modifiable
    risk factors through health promotion activities, such as diet,
    exercise and stress reduction techniques. The survey proved
    that the more information that individuals have about fertility,
    the more likely they are to exhibit positive health-seeking
    behaviours to improve their own fertility.
    The health of a man’s sperm dictates three of the following
    very important things.
    1. The ability to conceive. It is a 50-50 equation, after all.
    2. Chances of a miscarriage. Scientific evidence is
    now talking about the role and responsibility that
    oxidation of sperm or damaged sperm plays in
    miscarriages and pregnancy losses.
    3. Ability to create that healthiest possible baby. Your
    baby’s health is a reflection of its parents’ health
    prior to conception.
    So, it’s really important to note that getting pregnant is a team
    effort, a couple working together to optimise the chances of
    conception and of course, carrying a healthy pregnancy to
    term. Someone once asked “Can sperm be incompatible with
    the egg?” Absolutely yes, it can be. Female sperm antibodies,
    an incompatibility with the egg for whatever reason, could
    reduce the sperm’s exposure to the egg.
    In terms of incompatibility, it’s generally not the egg that is
    going to be affected. It is mostly the cervical mucus. Even
    though the egg can have antibodies to your sperm, it is
    usually female mucus that will kill the sperm. The result of this
    hostility is that the sperm never is able to get to the egg. The
    best way to prevent that is by wearing condoms anytime you
    have sex other than the times that you’re actually trying to
    conceive. This will reduce the female immunological response
    to the sperm, if there is one there. When trying to have a baby,
    timing conception and intercourse are also going to be vital.
    Miscarriages are a 50:50 equation when it comes to egg and
    sperm quality – there are 7 category reasons for miscarriages,
    which I cover during the #Soprecious14dayFertilitydare
