A question often asked by people all around the world: What is the best time to conceive? Researchers have finally gotten around and found that winter is the best time to do so. In 2010, The World Health Organization (WHO) released the Laboratory Manual for the Examination and Processing of Human Semen: Fifth Edition. This report pinpoints winter as the best time for conceiving as men produce the healthier sperm in cooler months. They found sperm in greater numbers, with faster swimming speeds, and fewer abnormalities, in semen made during the winter.
The report is paramount in terms of providing information about the male infertility . This could shed new light and help the infertility experts in the cases of male infertility. Taking into account that it takes approximately 70 days for the body to produce a sperm cell, the researchers found that men with normal sperm production had the healthiest sperm in the winter and early spring. Temperature affects sperm with higher temperature inhibiting the sperm count. Extreme exposure to heat can reduce the quality of sperms as well as the motility. Normally, 70 million sperm per millimeter are produced compared to 68 million at the end of spring. This is a huge number considering the sperms are the critical facets of male infertility.
Male infertility treatments are boosted with the research done and published in the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology. Other reasons affecting the good growth of sperms would be the hormonal variations or exposure to day light hours. The data available in the research would be quite beneficial for the male infertility specialists. Doctors can advise the patients to avoid heat exposure while implementing various measures to alleviate the sperm quality. This coupled with the new advances in Medical fertility world will help bring happiness and joy to couples across the world.
