How long does it take to improve my sperm quality?

Posted by & filed under Sperm, The Basics, The Journey.

It takes about 72 days for sperm to mature from stem cells to fully-functioning sperm, so any changes you make need to be consistent for about three months.

You can talk to your doctor to find out whether HCG, clomiphene, letrozole, and rFSH preparations will be helpful for you.

Vitamin therapy is one of the easiest steps to take. We suggest Vitamin E up to 400IU/d, Zinc up to 70mg/d, Selenium up to 250mcg/d, Folate (1-5mg/d), Vitamin C (500-1000mg/d), and Co-enzyme Q10 (200mg/d). If red meat isn’t a part of your diet, L’carnitine supplements may be helpful.

A recent analysis of 12 studies from around the world found that lycopene could contribute to greater sperm health. Either way, a diet rich in red fruit and vegetables such as tomatoes, strawberries, peppers and watermelon isn’t bad for your health.

The good news is that the majority of men will see a sperm quality increase through some basic lifestyle changes. Stay away from the sauna and hot tub for a few months, get plenty of exercise, rest up and reduce or quit smoking.
