Heres some pretty nifty info...im going google happy :P



someone has to stop me



Important information on timing intercourse!
It is important to time intercourse at least 12 hours before ovulation. Sperm usually reach the fallopian tube and the egg within minutes after intercourse however, sperm need about 12 hours in your uterus before they can fertilize the egg in a special process called capacitation. This is the maturation process within the female reproductive tract by which spermatozoa become capable of fertilization. That's why the best time to make love is the day before and the day of ovulation
Do you have thick or hostile Cervical Mucus? Ask your doctor about prescribing Guaifenesin tablets. Guaifenesin is found in plain Robitussin, but the tablets don't leave that nasty after taste in your mouth. Guaifenesin works by thinning out your cervical mucus as it does with thinning mucus in your lungs when you take it when you are coughing. Thinner mucus means easier flow for sperm. If dear hubby has a problem with poor mobility, this may help him as well! Do you have little or no fertile quality cervical mucus? One solution is PreSeed This is a Sperm friendly vaginal lubricant that can be ordered from drugstore.com for about $20. It is important that you DO NOT use any other personal lubricant. Most personal lubricants and even saliva can harm sperm! I found this in my search to find a way to combat the dryness associated with Clomid.
Have sex the day before ovulation to up your chances! Sperm usually reach the fallopian tube and the egg within minutes after intercourse, however, Sperm need about 12 hours in your uterus before they can actually fertilize the egg in a special process called capacitation. This is the maturation process within the female reproductive tract by which sperm become capable of fertilization. That's why the best time to make love is the day before and the day of ovulation. It's all about the timing!
Cold Shower for Daddy! Have hubby take a five minute cold shower 30 minutes before intercourse! The cold water will stimulate blood flow and just might improve motility!
Have hubby drink a strong cup of coffee 30 minutes prior to intercourse! It has been said to give his spermies a boost!
Put a pillow under your bottom after intercourse and lay still for 30 minutes. Why make gravity work against his guys. Give a little boost up!

In about 40% of infertile couples, the cause of the infertility lies with the males. There are many reasons for male infertility.For couples who are trying to conceive, it only makes sense to have an evaluation done on the males fertility health when conception hasn't occurred after 6 months.
My husband underwent a Vasectomy Reversal in December 2000. We conceived 10 months after the reversal. His sperm count, motility, mobility, morphology, etc. were within normal range at 6 months post reversal. We had him on the supplement stated below.
Should we have intercourse everyday or every other day?

There has been a tremendous amount of misinformation about the best way to time intercourse to increase the chance of conception. Most of this misinformation has come from physicians who have confused obtaining a standard semen analysis with promoting conception. It has been clearly shown, both with normal sperm counts and low sperm counts, that daily intercourse during the fertile period produces the highest pregnancy rates. You cannot "save it up" and you cannot have intercourse too often. The fertile period starts 6 days before ovulation and ends the day after ovulation.
Quick Fact: It takes approximately 72-90 days to produce mature sperm. Sperm is produced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
There are many factors that can decrease or cease sperm production. Here are a few:




Illness
Excessive Caffeine
Stress
Excessive alcohol consumption
"How HIS Alcohol Consumption Affects
Her Ability to Conceive"

Street and certain Prescription Drugs
Some over the counter medications
Injury to the testicles
Blockage in the Vas Deferens
Excessive Heat to the testicles
Vitamin Deficiencies
Varicocele:a varicose enlargement of the veins of the spermatic cord that may cause infertility through a significant decrease in the quality and quantity of the sperm. More Information on correction of Varicocele


Normal semen values as outlined by the World Health Organization are as follows:



PARAMETER
MINIMUM VALUE
Volume (mL)
2.0
Sperm Concentration (million/mL)
20
Motility (%)
50
Forward Progression (0-4)
3
Normal Morphology (%) (WHO)

Normal Morphology (%) (Strict)
14
Total Sperm Count (million)

Total Motile Sperm (million)

Total Functional Sperm (million)

Abnormal Spermies

There are few common rules to start with.
1. Limit or eliminate caffeine intake.
2. Stop smoking
3. Stop Recreational Drugs
4. Wear Loose Underwear (boxers)
5. Stay out of Hot Tubs
6. Quit drinking alcoholic beverages
Low Motility?
Guaifenesin (Plain Robitusson-no letter extensions) can improve motility by thinning out the semen allowing for your guys to swim up stream easier. Vitamin C and Zinc can also help
