Embrace Fall and Your Sperm Health

By October 6, 2020 October 20th, 2022 No Comments

When leaves change color, and your coffee is flavored with pumpkin spice, it can only mean one thing – fall has arrived. While the season’s change brings obvious highlights like football, Halloween, and Thanksgiving, it also brings unique opportunities to improve sperm health.  When you are trying to conceive, the same old routine can grow old. Taking advantage of Fall Fertility opportunities can help reset your baby-making efforts in a welcoming way.  Here are five fertility-fueling things you can do this fall season that can support your fertility journey and possibly bring you one step closer to fatherhood.

  1. Be Proactive About Your Sperm Health

When fall arrives, life can seem to slow down a bit. People are getting ready for the holiday season, and many businesses are in the home stretch, wrapping up their fiscal years. Now is a great time to check your sperm health after a busy summer using a YO Home Sperm Test Kit. Testing your sperm health in your home’s privacy is a no-brainer to ensure there are no underlying issues on the male side of the baby-making equation. Keeping tabs on your sperm health while trying to conceive is essential as many lifestyle decisions can influence your Motile Sperm Count.  Use YO up to 100 times to monitor your swimmers during your conception Journey.

  1. Embrace Sperm-Powering Fall Foods

Fall brings on an abundance of antioxidant-rich and delicious foods that can help support your sperm health while you embrace the fall spirit. From pumpkins to pears, fall-harvest produce is chock-full of nutrients like beta-carotene and vitamin C, which are nutrients known to help keep sperm healthy. Enjoying a cornucopia full of fall foods like butternut squash, pomegranate, sweet potatoes, and apples are a simple way to pack in those critical nutrients your body needs to maintain sperm health. And for an extra fertility-supporting boost, try snacking on some roasted pumpkin seeds, which are loaded swimmer-supporting vitamins and minerals.

  1. Enjoy the Great Outdoors

Fall weather makes exercising outdoors irresistible. Take advantage of the cooler weather and go for a walk or jog in the crisp air. Over the weekend, picking up an impromptu (socially distant) baseball game or a round of golf can get your body moving, which is extremely important when it comes to sperm health. Data suggests that moderate physical activity and maintaining a healthy weight support sperm quality, so get outside and get moving! Just watch out for sports like bike riding that may create too much physical impact and heat in the groin area.

  1. Use the Holidays as a Time to Unwind

If work gets your stomach in a knot and you feel the anxiety of these troubled times, take advantage of the upcoming holidays to unwind. Stress can wreak havoc on male fertility and sperm health, so taking time to relax is super-important. Use the holidays as a time to put up your “out of office” alert and enjoy some down-time with your honey or loved ones. Taking some time to unwind and tackle your stress can be just the ticket you need on your fertility journey.  Use YO Home Sperm Test to monitor progress during the holidays and help guide your healthy lifestyle decisions.

Sprucing up your sperm-friendly routine can be a welcome change for many men, and the emergence of fall gives you that perfect opportunity. No matter how you are enjoying the start of the fall season, including some fertility-friendly habits can significantly impact your sperm health to kick off the new year!
