Women’s fertility is only a small part of the process for conception, and male fertility is another important factor. The health status of the sperm includes movement, quantity, and quality. Movement is essential for the sperm to reach the egg and to increase chances of fertility, over 40% of your sperm should be moving. In terms of quantity, men are more likely to be fertile if their ejaculate contains over 15 million sperms in each milliliter. Quality also plays an essential role, as the stronger sperm you have, the more fertile you will be. Lets see how to make sperm stronger.Note : High-Tech Gadgets Won’t Make Sperm StrongerMobile phones, iPads, iPods, laptops, computers etc…We can’t live without them, they are fun to use and serve a purpose.
