IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO

EXPERT: Victoria Wells

When couples are trying to conceive most of the attention (or so it may seem) falls on the woman’s fertility even though male fertility can be an important factor in increasing the chances of conception. And when female fertility is the issue, it is still important that men feel part of the process, supporting their partner and being given good advice on what to do to improve their own fertility and optimise the health of the baby you both want. Making positive changes to your lifestyle and diet including planning what food you eat, eating well together, cutting out smoking (including avoiding cannabis), limiting alcohol intake and exercising can all help. I want to share a communication strategy that I teach clients which can help couples feel more connected, united and ultimately more loved. Taking time to check in with each other and really understand how each other feel about things is the glue that keeps us strong in difficult times. It’s about holding a space for the other person to feel safe to express themselves without trying to change or judge their feelings.

Sperm production

Sperm health is not just about the numbers. It also includes morphology (structure) and motility (movement). There also needs to be good levels of semen to transport and provide energy for the sperm. It is generally said that sperm takes 90 days to mature but it is closer to two and half months. Sperm develop in the testicles for fifty to sixty days and are then excreted into the sperm-maturing tube, the epididymis, to complete their maturation for another fourteen days.
