Men Have Only Half The Fertility Of Their Fathers

We know that men's fertility has been on the decline for decades but few people put much thought into it. Men produce multi million amounts of sperm so who cares about a few less right? Wrong! The average man in the early 1970's produced an average of 99 million sperm per milliliter. Fast forward to 2011 the average man only is producing 47 million sperm per milliliter.

Men Sleeping In A Quiet Bedroom Have A Greater Chance of Becoming A Father

Men looking to increase fertility can do some pretty simple things to get an edge over the average guy. Improving diet, getting regular exercise, taking vitamins and even getting more sleep can all help their chances of a healthy pregnancy. I wrote a blog a few years ago named "Good Sleep, Good Sperm, Dream Big" which discusses the importance of getting enough sleep for your fertility.  

Why is a Guys Infertility Not Treated The Same As Female Infertility?

I read a article recently discussing how we treat infertility different in men than in women. It doesn't really make any sense as male infertility is just as common, we just don't treat it that way! The article written in the huffington post was named "Infertility in Men is Just as Common as in Women It's Just Not Treated That Way"

Where Sperm Are Made and Stored - A Sperms Fertility Journey

In my work I often hear of men wanting to improve their fertility. The best way to do this is by knowing how sperm are made, formed and where this happens. This general process is better known as spermatogenesis. Once we understand the how sperm are created and where they mature we can then figure out how best to improve their function, quality and number.  

The Guys Guide to Fertility, Simple Steps to Survive The Fertility Journey

Couples trying to conceive can easily find information on female infertility but often have more of a difficult time learning about male infertility. It takes a fair amount of digging before your able to get quality information on infertility in men. I wanted to write a simple and easy to understand guide to a guys fertility and how best to improve it. Since male infertility is found in almost 1/2 the couples trying to conceive this information needs to be made more readily available.  

Guys Are You In The 20 Percent?

I see too few men in my practice. I enjoy treating women and see great success with my fertility patients but could see more success if men were more active in the treatment process. Male factor infertility is diagnosed in approximately 40% of couples who have been trying to conceive without success.  Close to half my practice should be men, unfortunately I see about half that many.
