With Trouble Conceiving, it Could be the Man

It is a common misconception that infertility is only a woman’s problem. Research shows that 1 in 7 couples have trouble conceiving. About half of the time it’s because of the man having fertility issues . Couples today often wait years before they investigate the cause.Surprisingly couples will often spend year after year, trying to conceive without imagining that they could be a simple medical solution to the problem. And oftentimes it’s the male not the female.

The causes can be genetic, anatomical like dilated veins, inflammatory or hormonal. New research out of New York shows men that put their laptop on their lap, even with a protective pad underneath, can lower their sperm production.

After 30 minutes with this scenario there will be an increase in heat – enough that can effect sperm production.

Doctors  encourage couples that have been trying to conceive for a year without success, that  it’s time to see a doctor. For many couples the use of an over-the-counter antioxidant formulation, such as Proceptin XL can be useful for supporting male reproductive function.
