  • The testicle positioning outside of the body is to ensure that the sperm is made at a lower temperature than the normal body temperature. Therefore, men with low sperm count should avoid wearing tight underwear and exposure to hot tubs and sauna that can increase the testicular temperature.
  • A healthy diet and drinking lots of water also help increase the sperm count. Men with low sperm count should eat plenty of foods rich in protein and high-quality fat. They should avoid fast foods, sugary foods, alcohol, street drugs and cigarettes as well.
  • Having moderate exercise regularly also enhances the sperm count. Ensure to wear light loose clothing during the exercise to avoid increasing temperatures around the testicles that will lower the production of the sperm count.
