Men and What They Can Consider When Trying to Conceive
Duration: 42 seconds

If you are the male side of the equation that's trying to conceive there's only a few things you need to worry about.

Stay away from marijuana, it actually makes the sperm a little bit slower and a little bit more confused. Another thing to remember is to stay away from things that can actually increase the temperature of your testicles.

A couple of things would be hot tubs, or wearing jockey shorts, that actually hold the testicles closer to the body. The common recommendation is to wear boxers when you're trying to conceive.

If you're on the male side of the equation and have more questions about what you should and should not do if your trying to conceive, please contact your healthcare provider.
