Sperm Count
Sperm Count - Dr Judy Ford
Sperm Count
 
Sperm Count
A man's sperm count gives a very good indication of his fertility. A sperm count varies quite dramatically and more than one sample is often necessary to get a true estimate of the sperm count. If there are no sperm (azoospermia) or very low numbers (oligospermia), there is very little chance that this man can father a child without some intervention. If the sperm count shows that the sperm have no tails or some other serious defect, there is also no chance of natural conception. In these cases the couple might be able to be helped by IVF clinics. However they should not consider intervention without tests to elucidate the cause of the problem because this could result in the birth of a child with a serious birth defect.
 
Sperm counts that are below 'par'
The cause of low sperm count, poor sperm morphology or poor sperm motility can often be due to some aspect of lifestyle. Chemical toxins, inadequate or unbalanced diet, infection, chronic illness, stress, medical and social drugs and heating of the testes are amongst the common correctable lifestyle causes of low sperm count and infertility. There is even information on how to overcome the effects of ageing and its effects on a man's fertility and virility. New information on the effects of different types of chairs and underpants on sperm count and sperm morphology underline just how many problems can be corrected relatively easily.
 
The book is also available as a hard copy called 'Build sperm with attitude'.

Why you should read: 'Sperm Count' by Dr Judy Ford
Over recent years there has been a great deal of attention given to male fertility and virility. Much of the discussion is driven by parties who have vested business or political interests.
 
Dr Judy Ford's own research led to strong evidence that many common aspects of lifestyle can lead to deterioration of sperm count, sperm morphology and sperm motility. Her work has been supported and expanded by other studies. Many aspects of lifestyle that contribute to reduced fertility or even infertility can be corrected quite easily. Dr Judy has helped men overcome their problems by explaining why their work or habits are causing their problems. Men who wish to take control of their own lives can address these issues quite simply. It's just a matter of understanding how things work and how to optimise the health of the testes.
 
This is a book for men who want to learn and take control.
