When preparing to conceive, it’s imperative to improve the overall reproductive health of both women and men.

If you are anything like 15% of couples in the U.S., conceiving may not come easily. Some couples are able to conceive with the help of fertility treatments, others are able to conceive after time without the use of fertility treatments, and some couples are unable to conceive at all. If and when a couple does finally conceive, it didn’t come without an emotional journey and physical exhaustion. 

Infertility is not sexist and can be caused by the male and not the woman in some cases. There seems to be a common misconception that when a couple can’t conceive, it’s the female’s fault.

Today, we discuss a few ways to help increase chances of conceiving if you’re a male.
