      Top myths about male fertility

      Male fertility is a sensitive subject and there are many old wives’ tales and myths revolving around it. We look at some of the common myths doing the rounds and clear them.

      Myth: Having sex every day will increase chances of conception.

      Some couples tend to think that the more you try, the more successful you will be. However, the fact is that conception is more about timing it right.  It’s important to have sex during the "fertile window," which comprises five to six days leading up to and including ovulation. Having sex every alternate day is more than enough to boost conception chances as a man’s sperm can live from 48 to 72 hours in a woman's reproductive tract.

      Myth: Normal looking ejaculate equals good quality sperm

      Most of the fluid that is ejaculated is not sperm. Sperms are microscopic and the only way to find out about fertility of the ejaculate is to get a sperm analysis done.

      Myth: Taking testosterone supplements will improve fertility

      This is one of the biggest myths that’s been floating around. While it’s true that supplemental testosterone may improve a man's libido and energy, on the other hand it reduces the production of natural testosterone and may completely shut down sperm production.

      Myth: Wearing boxers is better than wearing briefs for fertility

      The fact is that wearing boxers or briefs have no impact on male fertility.

      Myth: Sugar sweetened beverages do not impact fertility

      Taking more than one sugar sweetened beverage a day can impact male fertility. Studies have shown that these can affect women as well.

      Myth: Smoking has nothing to do with fertility

      Tobacco smoking has been linked to decreased fertility in both men and women. Smoking marijuana has resulted in abnormally shaped sperm besides an increase in female hormones in men.
