So you and your husband have decided that this is the right time to have a baby. You’re both intellectually, emotionally, psychologically and physically mature enough, plus, you’ve saved up quite a hefty sum at the bank. Now the next step is to do some actual leg work (quite literally).

Fast-forward a couple of months and it all seems like wasted effort. No bun in the oven. Something’s amiss and you think you’ve found the culprit–the sperm. According to ob-gyne specialist Dr. Theresa Camara the quality of the sperm plays a major role in a couple’s ability to conceive.

So how do you keep them in top working condition? As advised by health.com, you keep them away from these brutal sperm killers:

Tight clothing
Tight and constricted clothing create inhospitable environments for sperm growth and production. "Boxers are better than briefs, if a man’s sperm count is on the low side. But it probably has little effect if the sperm count is normal," said Dr. Danzer.


Bad habits
Men trying to start a family should put their bad habits aside if they’re really set on having babies. Studies show that cigarette smoking, alcohol and marijuana can impair sexual function, so skip a few parties for a while and see if you get better results.
