When you’re TTC, your health and general wellbeing as a woman are important. But did you know it is equally important that your hubby is in good shape? Read on to find out what men can do to enhance your chances as a couple of conceiving a healthy baby.
- Exercise Regularly
One way your Dear Husband (DH) can improve his fertility is by exercising regularly. Physical exercises like running, jogging, skipping, etc in addition to enhancing his performance and confidence, also help to boost his testosterone levels. By exercising regularly, his testosterone levels will spike, and he will also produce high quality “baby batter”. So, you might want to help dust off his sneakers!
- Reduce Stress
Too much stress can hinder your partner’s fertility and sexual happiness. Constant exposure to stress raises the cortisol levels, which negatively impacts testosterone. Thus, when cortisol rises, testosterone drops, and that can have a negative impact on his fertility. So, if for instance your partner is being stressed at work, he should find healthy ways such as taking a leisure stroll or enjoying a movie with you, to de-stress.
- Eat Healthy
Eating healthy is another way your hubby can enhance his fertility. Eating the right foods, as well as fruits and vegetables helps to enrich the body with all the required nutrients. This can give a boost to his fertility. While eating right is very important, it is also paramount to cut out unhealthy eating habits. So it can be helpful to be moderate with alcohol, quit smoking, etc.
Of course you don’t have your fertility in your own hands. But it’s important to realize that there are a lot of things you and your hubby can do to have a good influence on it!
