Inspiration on Father’s Day: Tips to Coping with Male Infertility
This Father’s Day, remember that family is made of more than genetics. According to Resolve: The National Infertility Association, 30% of infertility cases are related to male infertility factor issues, approximately the same as with women, so know there are others out there dealing with similar complications, even if they are not talking about it.
Many men have overcome their infertility challenges and started their dream family using fertility treatments and/or donor sperm.
Read these 3 tips to staying positive during this journey:
Get informed about male infertility:
Visit your doctor and have your sperm tested. Remember to ask questions about male infertility factors and know exactly what is causing your infertility. Be aware of your options so you can determine which path to parenthood is best for you.
Talk about options:
Make plans and discuss options with your partner. This will help you feel involved and keep you an active participant in the process. This will allow you and your partner to get ready for the journey of having a child, however that may be.
Develop a healthy lifestyle as well as a routine to help you de-stress and relax. Keeping active will clear your head, so join a fitness class or another fun and healthy activity. Avoid things that may affect your sperm quality, such as saunas and hot tubs. You can also read ways to boost your fertility, according to Resolve.
Using a donor to create the family you’ve always wanted may not be your first choice, but it’s an alternative path to parenthood worth considering. By using an FDA regulated sperm bank, you ensure that the donor you’ve chosen has given up parental rights when they became a donor.
