By Sergio Rogel Cayetano.
Last Update: 10/22/2021

There are different ways to achieve the goal of increasing sperm quality:

Healthy habits
regular intake of antioxidants (tomato, nuts), not excessive exercise, ensuring proper regulation of testicular temperature (not tight underwear), avoiding hormonal disruptors (plastics, fuels...) are useful to naturally improve sperm quality.
Medications
They are usually medications that provide trace elements, vitamins and antioxidants externally, and their use is a good option before or during assisted reproduction treatments.
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
always under medical prescription. These drugs reduce sperm DNA fragmentation.
Others
the use of hormones such as gonadotropins or testosterone may be necessary to improve sperm quality. These medications should always be used after a doctor's prescription.
