The table above displays the results from two semen analyses conducted by my client, with a 4 month interval between the tests on August 8, 2022 and December 21, 2022. As you can see the results in red are out of range. Notably, there is a significant improvement across all parameters in the sample produced 4 months later. I worked with this client between the samples, implementing a personalised nutritional plan with lifestyle recommendations. Scroll down for the full semen analysis reports.


According to the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines from 2021, results should be above certain values to be considered healthy, with sperm count, motility and morphology being the most crucial parameters. However, semen analysis forms only part of a thorough fertility check. There are other factors to take into account and further tests that can be done to give a clear picture of fertility potential.


If results fall outside the ‘normal’ range it doesn't mean that you can’t have a baby and there’s a lot that can be done to improve sperm quality. Every step represents a positive change in supporting the health and quality of sperm, as demonstrated by the improvement in results for many of my clients. It is essential to approach fertility challenges with optimism, acknowledging that each positive stride toward supporting sperm health is a step closer to realising fertility goals!


Improving sperm quality involves a personalised approach that combines adopting healthy nutritional habits and making positive lifestyle choices, recognising that it is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor. Tailoring these strategies to individual needs is crucial for effective treatment.


I worked with this client on 12 key areas:

1. Maintaining a Balanced Diet:

   - Ensure a well-balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals.

   - Include plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats.


2. Staying Hydrated:

   - Drink plenty of water to support overall health and hydration, which is essential for sperm production.


3. Limiting Processed Foods and Sugars:

   - Reduce the intake of processed foods, sugars, and excessive amounts of unhealthy fats, as they may negatively impact overall health, including sperm quality.


4. Consuming Antioxidant-Rich Foods:

   - Antioxidants help protect sperm from damage. Include foods high in antioxidants, such as berries, nuts, seeds, and colourful fruits and vegetables.


5. Managing Weight:

   - Maintain a healthy weight, as both obesity and being underweight can negatively affect sperm production and quality.


6. Exercising Regularly:

   - Engage in regular physical activity, such as aerobic exercise and strength training, to support overall health and well-being. However, avoid excessive exercise, as it may have a detrimental impact on fertility.


7. Quit Smoking:

   - Smoking has been linked to decreased sperm count and motility. Quitting smoking can have a positive impact on sperm quality.


8. Limit Alcohol Intake:

   - Moderation is key. Excessive alcohol consumption can impair sperm production, so it's advisable to limit alcohol intake, or remove it altogether if possible whilst trying to conceive.


9. Manage Stress:

   - Chronic stress can negatively affect reproductive health. Practice stress-reducing activities such as yoga, meditation, or deep breathing exercises.


10. Adequate Sleep:

    - Ensure sufficient and quality sleep, as sleep plays a crucial role in hormonal balance and overall health, including sperm production.


11. Reduce Toxins:

    - Minimise exposure to environmental toxins, such as pesticides, heavy metals, and certain chemicals, which can impact sperm quality.


12. Supplements:

    - A personalised combination of multivitamins and specific supplements can be beneficial for sperm health.


With every case and individual being unique, each client will require a specialised nutrition plan and supplement protocol tailored to their individual needs.
