Are there any recommendations for men before assisted reproduction treatment?

Yes, apart from the general recommendations such as leading a healthy life and avoiding tobacco and alcohol, in some cases supplementation with antioxidant compounds to improve semen quality may be of interest. However, it will be the specialist who will indicate whether the male should take these supplements, as well as the dosage and duration.

On the other hand, it is extremely important that the man respects the abstinence times and the indications given at the time of obtaining the semen sample.

On a psychological level, the man should feel involved in the process, support and accompany his partner, seek his own support and, if he considers it convenient, seek professional help to manage the emotions generated.
