More often than not when couples seek help with fertility concerns, females bear most of the responsibility as well as the medical interventions involved.

Male fertility includes concerns with sperm count, morphology, motility and fragmentation. It may also include sperm allergies and male tube blockages (arising from varicoceles and sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia or gonorrhea). The best treatment to try and improve overall sperm quality is to increase your intake of antioxidants.
