So often on this fertility journey, we carry all the shame and blame as to why we can’t conceive.
But did you know that 30% of all infertility cases have to do with male fertility? That means one in three of you is trying to conceive with a partner who’s struggling with low libido, low sperm count, or low testosterone levels.
Ladies, it’s time to use our juju to support our partners and boost male fertility!
But what does support actually look like?
Being supportive is not about creating rules and restrictions for your partner to follow. It isn't about pressuring them to do things your way, or trying to change who they are.
It’s about stepping into your power as the fertility goddess you are, and setting an example for the family you want to conceive. It’s also about educating your partner in an open and loving way, so he understands the role he’s playing in this journey as well.
Here are 5 ways you can help your man increase his fertility naturally:
Start with a male fertility test
First things first! You’ve gotten your hormone levels tested…now it’s your partner’s turn. By starting with a male fertility test, you can figure out what’s going on with him hormonally.
Your man will likely be asked to get a semen analysis done, so the doctor can figure out how high his sperm count is, and how fast they’re moving. If the sperm count comes back as low, he may want to check his testosterone, FSH, LH and prolactin levels.
Support your partner by making healthy changes together that can increase his sperm count. By setting healthy goals as a couple, you can hold each other accountable as you make these changes.
Incorporate more physical activity into your daily lives, increase vitamin C, vitamin B, omega-3, and zinc, get rid of smoking or excessive drinking, and find healthy ways to manage stress as a couple.
Eat foods that increase sperm count
Obviously to boost your chances of conception, you need your man to eat healthy. Here are the best foods that increase sperm count:
Walnut and flax seed
Try incorporating these foods into your daily meals as much as possible.
If your partner is struggling to get behind any nutritional changes, you can still support them without creating restrictive rules. After all, no one likes being told what they can and cannot eat!
Here are a few tips to slowly nudge him in the right direction:
Keep a bowl of fresh fruit on the table. Fruit not only supports fertility by providing hydration and essential vitamins and minerals…but it also sweetens a relationship!
Show your love by packing him a healthy lunch, and leave behind a sweet note. This will remind him how much he’s loved, and encourage him to eat healthier throughout the day.
Make him a smoothie packed with good juju herbs like ginseng and maca root. Who doesn’t love starting their day sipping something sweet?
Tap into their libido
We all know this fertility journey can be stressful, and the LAST place you want to bring that stress is into the bedroom honey!
Instead of allowing your infertility to create more pressure in your sex life, support your partner’s sexual health by tapping into some of my favorite fertility rituals for couples.
Create a love frequency playlist
Choose songs that put you in that mood, or just remind you of why you fell for each other in the first place. Play it in the bedroom to spice things up and get that fertility JUJU working!
Spice up the bedroom bath
Add a little spice to your bedroom ritual by taking a bath with orange peels, lavender, ginger, cinnamon, gardenia, and rose. These ingredients can also be put into a spray bottle whenever you want to tap into that seductive energy.
Heart space massage
Massage your partner’s heart space to keep him more loving and open emotionally. Share what you appreciate about him to create an even deeper connection.
Heal from miscarriage together
Miscarriage can create spiritual blocks around your partner’s fertility too. It’s important that he’s given the opportunity to release and cleanse from the spirit baby that didn’t make it through the pregnancy.
Below is a simple ritual you can perform together to help each other heal from miscarriage:
The Naming Ceremony
Start by giving your child a name they’re able to recognize. This will help you connect to the spirit baby who was lost, so you can help guide them home. Write a message for this child, and set the message on fire so the smoke can be sent to the spirit world. This process releases the babies that are stuck in this realm and allows for forgiveness to take place.
Invite him to your fertility altar
Your fertility altar is a sacred place where you connect with your spirit babies, and manifest your pregnancy. Invite your man to participate in building your altar together, so he can create his own relationship with your spirit babies, and visit them whenever he needs.
A few things you can include in your altar are:
Baby toys and clothes
Candy for your spirit babies
Special childhood items you want to share with your baby
