Whether you’re trying to prevent the stuff from doing what it’s supposed to do or working hard to get it to create a baby, these tips about sperm can help you make the best choices.
Live Long and Prosper
Vaginal fluids were made to help the sperm live as long as possible so that they can make the journey up to the egg. A healthy vagina can ensure that a sperm lives for three to five days.
A man typically releases approximately 40 to 2.1 billion sperm in one ejaculation. If a man’s overall count is less than this, he could have issues with fertility.
