increase low sperm count

I heard this is true. My wife and I want to have kids, so I was thinking if I was aroused without an orgasm to build up sperm then hold it in until we have sex, would it increase our odds? Any other ideas to give my troops a boost before we have sex. Thanks.


  1. I did read that some studies have shown that level of excitement can influence sperm volume in an ejaculation, but I think the most important factor is how often you do it, apparently every other day is best. Good luck!!

    Read towards the bottom of the page under the title "Others"

  2. i have never heard of this before may be its just an old wives tale i have been doing alot of research lately and recommended is baby dancing every other day asleaving days in between trying gives your sperm chance to build up you need to do this around ovulation which happens between day 11 and 16 of the womans cycle but dont forget to include the days she has been on her period to, hoped this helped i now i didnt answer the question you asked but i never heard of it before but anyway i wish you all the best in ttc with hugs and babydust x

  3. Can't say that that has been proven, but I was doing some research on "blue balls" (Sounds crazy, I know, but I am a science teacher, and our curriculum requires us to cover Q&A throughout our human growth, development, and good decision making unit.)

    "Blue balls" is the slang term for a congested prostate or vasocongestion, the condition of temporary fluid congestion in the testicles and prostate region caused by prolonged sexual arousal in a male. (Wikipedia)
    Ejaculation in a "blue balls" state may cause what is known as retrograde ejaculation, noted by particularly "watery" ejaculate. (also Wiki, but no source cited). Nor does it or any articles I've read so far talk about any increased sperm count upon ejaculation after "blue balls".

    This article from Discovery Health talks very openly about the subject.

    But from what I know and have studied, males make plenty of sperm daily. If you are fertile, keep it working. Sperm do have a viability period. The troops are well-equipped and reinforcements are always "on the way". :o)

    Not sure if this is completely accurate, but the quote below from a New York Times article should give you a general idea of how active the testes are as manufacturers…

    "Each testicle generates more than 4 million new sperm per hour, for a lifetime total of maybe 12 trillion sperm per man (although the numbers vary with the day and generally slope downward with age)."
    (Angier, 2007, New York Times)

    As for increased opportunity for conception with your wife, I believe a lot can be accomplished if you consider her heightened pleasure (orgasm) could help stimulate ovulation. I don't know if this is medically proven, but many cultures believe that good love makes miracles happen!

    You may also want to go to the doctor and have tests run to ensure both of you are fertile. And, of course, trying to determine when you wife ovulates. Timing is everything. She can talk to her ob/gyn about how to determine.

    But, no matter what, be sure to just enjoy each other's company every day. Keep life's simple pleasures simple. Hope this helps. :o)

  4. Actually, it is bad for any guy to have blue balls. Holding back an orgasm does make things more pleasurable in the sack once u do decide to "let it out" but it is not particularly healthy for your little swimmers. Your best bet is to make sure you have a fresh load of sperm every 3 days. Tell your wife to be aware of ovulation time, and above all else… enjoy yourself! Have fun making the baby!
