Male infertility is when a man has a poor chance of making his female partner pregnant. It usually depends on the quality of his sperm cells. While infertility is not always treatable, there are some things you can do to boost your chances of conceiving. Here are some of the lifestyle factors which can improve male fertility.
1. Avoid excessive alcohol and drug use
A number of studies have linked the worldwide use of drugs such as alcohol, marijuana, and cocaine to decreased sperm production. Alcohol has also been shown to cause sperm abnormalities.
2. Exercise regularly
Besides being good for your general health, exercising regularly can boost testosterone levels and improve fertility. Studies show that men who exercise regularly have higher testosterone levels and better semen quality than inactive men. (Source: healthline.com)
3. Cut down Caffeine
A study of Danish men found that sperm count and sperm concentration were slightly reduced in men who had a high soda and/or caffeine intake. Men should limit their caffeine consumption and that includes coffee, tea, chocolate, and energy drinks. (Source: parents.com)
4. Prevent STIs
Sexually transmitted infections — such as chlamydia and gonorrhea — can cause infertility in men. To protect yourself, limit your number of sexual partners and use a condom each time you have sex — or stay in a mutually monogamous relationship with a partner who isn’t infected.

5. Consider a multivitamin
Just like women, men need to meet daily nutritional requirements to be in the best shape possible. That includes folic acid, vitamin E and vitamin C — all of which has the ability to reduce free radical production and help keep sperm healthy and stable. Multivitamins can be a great help in meeting those daily requirements. (Source: mother.ly)
