1. You’re wearing the wrong underwear

2. You’re boozing too much

One or two drinks – particularly red wine – might be alright for your general health, but heavy boozing every weekend isn’t doing your baby makers any good. Drinking too much affects the production of sperm, its shape, and movement. So, ease up on the alcohol to help keep them healthy.

3. You sit with your laptop on your lap

Yes, it’s called a laptop, but men should avoid sitting with one on their laps. This is because a lot of heat is emitted from the bottom of a laptop, which could heat things up in the scrotum. Rather set your laptop up on a table – it’s also easier to work from this way.

4. You fry, rather than boil, your eggs

To help boost sperm count, try eating a soft-boiled egg in the morning. Preparing them this way helps make essential nutrients, such as amino acids, easier to absorb.
