Practice Moderate Exercise
Try to get a moderate amount of exercise each day to regulate your weight. Exercising too much or too little could play a factor in your fertility, so try to find a good moderate amount for you.
Try not to make that daily exercise cycling. Cycling will increase your testicle temperature and lower sperm counts.
Cut Out Drugs and Alcohol
Drugs, alcohol and smoking can all lead to lower sperm counts. Limit the beer and lay off the cigarettes if you are trying to increase your fertility.
Ditch the Heat
Avoid things that will cause an increase in your testicles temperature. This can include hot baths or hot tubs, tight underwear, or even resting your laptop near your testicles. The heat can lead to a decrease in sperm production.
