Start preparing your body for at least three months before embarking to any fertility treatment.
Start taking a multi-vitamin supplement for male fertility.
Check your vitamin D level, as suboptimal levels maybe associated with reduced fertility.
Adopt a healthy diet. Foods that can increase sperm quality include oranges, bananas, olive oil, salmon, milk, spinach, broccoli, asparagus, walnuts and dark chocolate. Reduce or ideally stop alcohol.
Heat in the testicular area can affect the sperm quality. Things you should avoid are; tight underwear and trousers, cycling, prolonged sitting, hot baths and saunas, keeping your mobile phone in your trouser pockets.
Chemicals are likely to be affecting the sperm so try to avoid exposure.

Try to maintain a normal BMI, as being overweight can reduce sperm quality.
Try to get 7-8 hours sleep per night.
