He'd really like more participation than "tonight!" :LOL<br><br>
Drinking tea is supposed to help women, but what can we do to boost a man's fertility?

he should wear boxers, not briefs or any form-fitting undies<br><br>
he should take a good multivitamin; zinc in particular is important for healthy swimmers<br><br>
no long hot baths<br><br>
no riding bikes<br><br>
he should devote himself to becoming your love slave <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

He should also keep his stress level down, not smoke and make sure he gets exercise.<br><br>
Vitamin A is supposed to be good too.

he should avoid alcohol too.<br><br>
i have read that moderate amounts of caffeine can help give the an extra boost to the swimmers.<br><br>
(this conjurs an amusing picture in my head of crazy coffee buzzing sperm).

NO MASTURBATING!!!!!!!! LOL I know a lot of guys do and it's just a relaxing thing, not at all like "sex" for them. But, it does deplete sperm count.

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> So mostly it's common sense stuff, eh? It's all good. I called dh at work to remind him to take his vitamin <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">. We don't have a bathtub, dh doesn't have a bike, and he prefers boxer-briefs to "tighty whities". :LOL We're non-smokers (I don't think I'd have married a smoker.. doesn't go real well with my asthma), and he's always willing to be my devoted love slave. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mischievous.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="mischief"><br><br>
I've never heard that about caffiene, though. DH was drinking massive quantities of diet coke when we concieved ds, so I'm willing to give it a shot! He'll probably have reservations about going back to the level he was at before, but a little bit won't be difficult <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">. Thanks for the ideas! Keep 'em coming! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust">

He should make sure you have an orgasm!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Okay maybe that's alot of pressure, on top of a lot of pressure!<br><br>
He can stick a pillow under your tushie, and bring you anything you want in the 20-30 minutes after sex.<br><br>
My DH likes to cheer on his guys, but no proof this works yet!<br><br>
From the woo-woo department, he can talk to the baby and let it know how much he is looking forward to being it's daddy.

hahahhahahah - moderate, not massive! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rotflmao"><br>
no need to get your dh completely wired!<br><br><br>
i have a question about the orgasm thing... does it matter when? maybe tmi here, but dh usually makes sure i'm done before he is. we only sometimes have an orgasm at the same time.<br><br>
what is the best time to orgasm if ttc?<br>
him first?<br>
me first?<br>
together?<br>
me then together then me again?

I saw an amazing video once of an orgasming cervix dipping down into a sperm deposit, just drinking it up basically. So to me that says if the sperm are in place, the orgasming cervix will suck them up. Sounds like a mandate for men first!<br><br>
I cannot imagine being the woman being filmed with a microcamera up her tender bits during sex.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!">

and man first it will be.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

It's probably true that after the guy is best, but it definitely opens the cervix up and makes things easier, whether it's before, at the same time or after.

A lot of women's fertility herbs help men too, but I don't know so much about that. The recipes are out there, though. Off the top, Ashwaganda, ginseng, siberian ginseng....<br><br>
Pumpkin seeds are high in zinc, and supposedly really good for men. If it's a matter of boosting his confidence and stuff, you might have him snack on them or make him a trail mix with pumkin seeds in it. The raw ones, organic.<br><br>
Hawthorn is another herb that's good for men. Not so much for the spermies, but for the heart and blood pressure. If you do make him an infusion, you might put that in.<br><br>
If you can get him drinking green tea for the caffeine instead of diet coke, that's going to be a lot better for him. Even an organic coffee would be better than diet coke. Even even regular sugar coke is probably better than diet.<br><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

He's a diabetic so regular sugar coke is right out. I know, I think the diet is gross too. *sigh*<br><br>
I was reading somewhere that if the woman has an orgasm that it will change the acidity of the vagina to favor a boy, and if she doesn't then it will favor a girl... and I'd kinda like to have a girl this time. (Not enough that I'd be upset with another boy, but I'd like a girl.) Does anyone know if that's true, or if it works?

I saw the video of the orgasming uterus. It is on "The Miracle of Life." I love it!!!! But, um yeah....NO WAY could I have an orgasm under those circumstances! :LOL<br><br>
From what I understand, the uterus will contract from an orgasm for upwards of 20-30 minutes after it happens. You just don't notice it when it is happening. But many woman, once they are about 5+ months pregnant, can feel the contractions brought on by orgasm. They are basically the same when you are not pg, but you just can't feel them.<br><br>
My dh doesn't cheer his guys on, but whenever I have been pregnant, he has guessed the sex correctly, every single time. He claims it is because he knows which of his guys he sent out! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:

hahhhah<br><br><br>
we just watched a video (probably the same one - a bbc production but i forgot the title) where they show the orgasming cervix - it was very cool. it also discusses how the sperms die by the millions... dh spent about 5 minutes talking to my pelvis telling his men to watch out and be careful and ignore their fallen comrades to aim for the common goal!
