Nutritious diet plays an important role in men’s sperm count as other factors like stress, obesity, lack of exercise shows negative impact.

"Men should know that the health of their sperm is an extremely important factor in getting a woman pregnant. And there are three main elements which determine the health of sperm cells: sperm quantity, sperm quality and sperm motility," Kshitiz Murdia, a leading fertility expert said.

"Therefore, eating well and nutritious diet rich in antioxidants which include tomatoes, sweet potatoes, melon, carrots, pumpkin seeds, fish, walnuts, blueberries and pomegranates is the key to having healthy sperm cells," he said. "Taking regular dose of multi-vitamins is helpful too," said Murdia, who is associated with city based Indira Fertility Clinic and Test Tube Centre. He also stated that dark chocolates helps in the volume of ejaculate and improve sperm count and motility. "The darker the chocolate, the better quality of sperms gets", he added.

Highlighting negative effects of smoking on sperms, he said, "Smoking in particular damages sperm as the sperm DNA gets affected with smoke and creates abnormalities in the sperm cell. When trying to have a baby, make sure you abstain yourself from smoking (active and passive) from at least 2 months in advance."
