• The Best Candidates for Vasectomy Reversal

    Vasectomy reversal is a procedure that many men have successfully undergone, allowing them to father the children they desire. Though the process can be effective under a wide range of circumstances, vasectomy reversal surgeons cite that some men may be better candidates for the procedure than others. One primary consideration is the original vasectomy. The less trauma incurred to the vas deferens, the more likely that the patient can enjoy a successful vasectomy reversal. The amount of time passed between the vasectomy and vasectomy reversal can also influence the success of the latter procedure, as men with shorter interval periods may have higher rates of fathering children after a vasectomy reversal. Men who have already fathered children are favorable candidates for vasectomy reversal as well.

  • Debunking Myths About Conception

    Couples wanting to conceive may be prone to believing any advice that could help their cause. As the following misconceptions illustrate, though, most of the suggestions passed down from one friend or family member to the next have no basis in fact. If you and your partner are trying to grow your family, the best advice is to consult a male infertility doctor who can provide medically supported suggestions to heighten your chances for pregnancy.

    Time of day affects conception.
    Some individuals are adamant that  having intercourse at certain times  can boost a couple’s odds of getting pregnant. However, successful conception relies not so much on time of day as time of month. Women do have a peak period of fertility during their menstrual cycles, so if you are trying to conceive, monitoring when this period occurs can help. Whether intercourse happens during morning or night during this period has little effect on conception, though.

    Frequent intercourse increases the chances of conception.
    To some extent, this is true, as couples that have intercourse only once a month may not have much success as becoming pregnant. The opposite extreme of having intercourse several times a day may not significantly increase the chances of conception, though. Under some circumstances, a male infertility doctor may even advise against it, as it could potentially lower sperm count.

    Certain positions can influence conception success.
    Sperm and eggs are not generally affected by the position of intercourse. As a result, couples that engage in certain positions with the sole hope to get pregnant may be going through unnecessary lengths to achieve their goal. Vaginal intercourse is mandatory for conception, but beyond this requirement, you need not submit to specific positions to become pregnant.

  • How Diet Affects Male Sperm Count

    Are you trying to conceive a child? As this video reports, you may want to lower your intake of processed meats to increase your chances of pregnancy.

    Recent studies evaluated how the diets of men undergoing in vitro fertilization affected their sperm count. The results indicated that participants who consumed high amounts of processed meats such as sausages and bacon had lower sperm counts than those who did not eat these foods. Additionally, men who included white fish in their diets had higher sperm counts when compared to the individuals who did not.

  • Tips for Older Dads

    Many older men choose to undergo a vasectomy reversal to begin or continue their family. If you are planning to become an older dad, you may worry about how your age will impact your ability as a parent. Taking a few steps to change the way you think and act will ensure that you and your child enjoy a healthy, happy relationship.

    Fatherhood is great!

    Stay in Shape
    Taking care of your body benefits both you and your children. By staying in shape, you’ll improve your health and energy levels while ensuring that you will live a longer life and have more time to spend with your family. If you don’t already exercise regularly, begin by taking brisk walks, practicing yoga, or starting a light program of weight training. If you aren’t sure how to begin or maintain a regular exercise routine, your doctor will be happy to help.

    Manage Stress
    Stress causes health issues as well as emotional strain in your family relationships. Take steps to  manage stress  in positive ways by identifying coping strategies that work well for you. Put frustrated energy into activities you enjoy, turning negative feelings into positive accomplishment. Talk to a close friend or relative if you feel comfortable expressing your feelings, and think of ways to be grateful for your new family and this new experience in your life.

    Connect with Your Children
    Even if you have a full-time job, making the effort to spend time with your children will help you develop close emotional bonds that will last a lifetime. Find a time that can be “yours” every day: play a game after dinner or read to your child before bed. Staying involved with your family holds strong emotional and mental benefits, building a positive familial relationship that you and your family will treasure.
