Alcohol Cut down

Drinking too much alcohol can damage the quality of your sperm. You shouldn’t drink more than three to four units of alcohol a day if you and your partner are trying for a baby.

Caffeinated beverages

There is no consistent evidence that caffeinated beverages can cause fertility problems. But the combination of coffee, drinking and smoking can affect the quality of your sperm.

Tight underwear

The testicles are responsible for producing and storing sperm. Tight underwear can cause a higher scrotal temperature which can reduce sperm quality.

Keep your testicles cool

A man's testicles should be one or two degrees cooler than the rest of his body. Tight underwear, hot showers and hot baths, driving for long distances, and laptops can raise the temperature of the testicles and affect sperm quality.

Body weight Keep an eye on it

Men who have a body mass index of more than 29 are more likely to have reduced fertility. Obesity is also linked to infertility as it can cause low testosterone levels.
