Hey Mr, nice to see you here! The zinc is great for men, you could also add maca root, great for increasing the sperms count and health!

Ive heard taking your missus out for a nice meal and suprising her with a bunch of flowers is always nice... although that won't improve your chances, I just wish Matt would do that for me

Anyway... she has got to get pregnant this month because she promised me that we would get pregnant at the same time!


Seriously though, your doing more than most blokes, I think the key is just to relax and enjoy the fun part... and be there to support her through the rough times!!

Good luck and give her a huge hug from me xx

I don't know if my OH has a low sperm count, but just incase (!) we did a little research and found a couple of things saying:

Pumpkin and sunflower seeds are good, + pinenuts
Avoid spicy foods & reduce caffine
Eat lots of vegetables and wholegrain
Cut down/stop drinking alcohol & def stop smoking (pretty obvious)
Don't overheat your sperm! Heated car seats / saunas etc are not good
Wear loose underwear
Sperm count is highest in the morning

No idea if any of this is actually true - but it can't hurt to try!

Good luck!

Nice to meet you too... although I feel like I already know you the amount Han talks about you

I wish it was that simple telling Matt that he should suprise me every once in a while... he just doesnt seem to get the hints! xx

aww i love her to bits. shes my universe and i couldnt imagine life without her in it. shes an amazing person, im so lucky to have her in my life

tbh men are useless wen it come to stuff like that :/ most men think the big gesture every blue moon is improtant and forget that the little 1s everynow and again show their better halfs that theyre thinking of them and that they appreciate everything they do for them. but men do learn lol in the end hehe
