Male fertility has become a big problem owing the increasing less of stress and unhealthy sedentary lifestyle. Therefore, the quality and production of sperm count has drastically fallen down. This problem further reduces the sperm’s chance to get fertilized with the female egg for conception. As per World Health Organization, usual concentration of sperm in a male is a minimum of 20 million per milliliter of semen. If the sperm count goes down than 15 million, it is considered low and is known as oligozoospermia.

This problem happens due to several problems, such as hormonal abnormalities, infection in the prostate gland, infected semen, enlargement of veins within the scrotum, damaged sperm ducts, cigarette smoking, alcohol and drug abuse, medications and exposure to heavy metal and radiation. Moreover, researches have shown that habits like keeping laptop on the lap and cell phone in the pant pocket can lead to a low sperm count.

Well, besides medications, there are several types of foods available which can help in boosting the count of sperms naturally. Let us get to know about a few of them.
