Health experts often caution men against any increase use of their mobile phones. Why? Because men who use their phones more have decreased sperm mobility, probably due to the electromagnetic waves.

Hit the Gym

Nevertheless, too much exercise or over training can deplete vitamins and stored hormones. Too much time on a bike can also put excessive pressure on the testicles, so as much as you exercise, try and take a break for a while.

Wear comfortable underwear

Check the underwear you wear. Cotton underwear is often the best and can help in sperm production. You can also decide not to wear any underwear at all.
