7 Fertility Myths Couples Need to Stop Believing

There is often an endless list of do’s and don’ts that a couple gets to hear from doctors, family and friends when it comes to fertility issues. And hassled by delay in conceiving, they tend to believe most of it blindly, even if some of them are baseless myths.

Here are a few:
Myth

He’s already a father, he does not have fertility problems

Reality

The male fertility is finite. The concentration of mobile and healthy semen decreases as a man ages. The volume of semen also decreases.

Myth

Being on birth control pill for too long delays pregnancy

Reality

Reports show that there is no truth to this myth. The female ovulation cycle returns to normal when intake of birth control pills is stopped.

Myth

Missionary is the best position for conception

Reality

There is no scientific evidence regarding a particular position being better to get pregnant. The sperms are chemically motivated to reach the female egg.

Myth

Smoking does not affect fertility

Reality

Believe it or not, smoking even a couple cigarettes a day can lower fertility rates in both men and women.

Myth

Having sex everyday decreases a man’s sperm count

Reality

If a man has a normal sperm count, sperm concentration does not decrease because of daily sex.

Myth

Coffee does not affect fertility

Reality

It has been proven that caffeine decreases fertility, so you will need to limit the intake.

Myth

Supplements before pregnancy are only for women

Reality

Everybody knows that folic acid is important for women who are trying to conceive as it helps prevent birth defects in the foetus. But what many do not know is that folic acid is a very crucial element in male fertility too.
