Increase Sperm Count By Natural Means

A sperm plays a vital role in creating a new life. The quality and quantity of sperms in the semen are the next important factors that have a bearing on conception. A low sperm count translates into difficulty in conception. Some of the common problems that men suffer are low sperm count, unhealthy sperm, quantity and quality of the sperm. For semen to be healthy it should either be white or grey colored, thick and more in quantity. Studies have shown that for every ml of semen there must be 20 million sperms. The overall sperm count should be at least 40 million of which 75% should be alive and 30% should be of normal shape and form. In that, 25% should have a good swimming speed to move forward. This indicates the fertilizing capabilities of the sperm. Sperm count below the normal conditions is called as 'Oligospermia' and if there are no sperms in the semen it is called as 'Azoospermia.'
