Attention all Perspective Dads: What You Need to Know About Male Fertility!

Human fertility is on the decline. Now 1 in 6 couples are finding it difficult to achieve a pregnancy. Assisted reproductive technology is becoming BIG business and is taking a huge emotional, physical and financial toll on those desperately wanting a baby.

Until recently men's health and fertility status have often been overlooked when planning a pregnancy, preconception, and in the early stages of investigations regarding failure to conceive. Recent medical research suggests that 6% of males are classed as "infertile" and somewhere between 40% and 90% of males have "deficient sperm production of unidentifiable origin". It is certainly my experience in clinical practice that an increasing number of males have suboptimal fertility.

When you consider that the male contributes 50% of the genetic make up of his child and that 40% - 50% of human infertility is now attributed to male factors, optimizing fertility in men is obviously vital to achieving conception and improving pregnancy outcomes. Even miscarriage can be attributable to male factors.

Traditionally, assessment of male fertility is via a semen analysis. Primarily, this looks at " Sperm count - how many million sperm per milliliter

. Motility - ability of sperm to swim forward rapidly (and reach their target!)
. Morphology - the form of the sperm i.e. the amount of malformation - due to nutritional deficiencies, toxic and free radical (oxidant) damage.

Because sperm are produced in such great numbers (up to 2,000 - 4,000 per second!), only the availability of specific vital nutrients as well as the absence of toxic chemicals, heavy metals, radiation etc will ensure unaffected DNA, perfect shape and great motility. It takes around 116 days (that's 4 months) for the tiny sperm to mature and during that time they can be very prone to damage. The health and vitality of your sperm today is the product of your health and environment over the past four months.

Thorough naturopathic and nutritional assessment covering diet, lifestyle and nutritional status will also give a good indication of fertility potential.


Factors that can affect male fertility, sperm count, motility and morphology include:- " Poor diet and nutritional status. Especially diets high in calories and low in fibre / vegetables & protein.
. Occupational and environmental toxins - pesticides, herbicides, petrochemicals, plastics, xeno-oestrogens, radiation / X-rays, toxic heavy metals.
. Infections - particularly genitourinary infections such as Chlamydia, Candida and the like
. Excessive heat - from excessive exercise, saunas, wet suits, bike pants etc
. Prescription and recreational drugs
. Alcohol and cigarettes
. Immune, autoimmune factors & other illnesses
. Varicocele - vascular anomalies in the testes
. Endocrine (hormonal) factors
. Trauma
. Psychological stress

A period of 4 month's preconception care including improved diet and lifestyle, improved nutritional status, nutritional supplementation where required plus the use of various herbal formulations will increase male fertility dramatically.

Remember guys, you are 50% of the equation !

Undertaking a preconception health care program is the ultimate in preventive medicine and is one of the most loving and responsible choices a couple can make for their child's health. What you do for a few months will have lifelong effects for you, your child and future generations.

For a Good Cause: Why Support Adopt A Pet?

Choosing the right pet for you is fun, but takes time, planning and lots of research. You need to consider very carefully both your needs and the needs of any animal that comes into your life; for example, how much time you can spend for exercise, how much space you have and how much you can afford to pay for food, toys and possible vet bills. To make this process easier, the RSPCA has introduced Adoptapet, a national website that lets you view some of the animals waiting adoption at RSPCA shelters across Australia. Thanks to the RSPCA, Bendigo Bank and VISA, you can now begin the search for your new friend from the comfort and convenience of your desktop. And when you’ve found the type of pet you think might be right for you, you can just contact the relevant shelter to find out more and make arrangements to meet potential new family members.
