When a couple is diagnosed as infertile, initial thoughts are often directed toward the woman. The reality is that infertility factors are equally shared between men and women. The idea that infertility is entirely a women’s issue is just one of a few myths regarding the ability to conceive.
You have probably been told that you have a low sperm count. If so the first thing you must remember is that sperm count is a poor test in terms of predicting whether you will actually be fertile or not. So, unless you have almost zero sperm count you should not give up. There are also plenty of men around who have normal sperm counts but unfortunately no children.
We still are unable to predict precisely which couples will be fertile and which couples will not! No one wants to have a fertility problem, there is no doubt that taking some time to find out more about the things that control your fertility can help. The information will help you to control the powerful emotions that can surface during this time, but also the additional knowledge can give you a much better chance of success.
There are many physical and biological reasons for male infertility, in many cases the cause of male infertility is unknown. This diagnosis of “unknown causes” can be quite frustrating especially for couples who are seeking to conceive. So what can you do and where do you start?

Make love more often. Not only around ovulation but at least every 48 hours according to Mayo Clinic. Another study presented by Dr David Greening to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine conference in DC showed that “increasing periods of abstinence is associated with increased sperm DNA damage” Basically the longer the sperm sits the more opportunity that external and internal threats to sperm quality. So it may be a trade off quality vs. quantity and frequency of ejaculation. Multiple reports state that if you have a decent sperm count, then frequent (daily or every 48 hrs) may help you produce better quality sperm with less exposure to free radicals and DNA damage. If you have a low sperm count than according to the British Fertility Society than a wait of two to three days in-between is advised.
