Dr. Tolani Ajayi spoke on how to reverse Low Sperm Count and Improve Male Fertility…
According to her, Low sperm count and infertility in men are more prevalent than most couples think. People tend to think that if a woman is not getting pregnant the fertility issue must be with the woman, but that is not necessarily always the case.
There is an equal chance that male factor infertility can be the cause of a couple’s difficulty in achieving pregnancy. While women have many tests to try to find out the cause of infertility, men have only a couple, the sperm analysis being the easiest.
If you have been trying to get pregnant for more than a year, make sure that both of you go and do infertility test.
The results of a good test would be a sperm count of 20 million or more sperm with healthy mobility and morphology. Suboptimal levels are less than 20 million sperm. If you find that your sperm levels are low or are having issues with motility or morphology, this article will share with you some natural therapies you can use to help improve on sperm count and health.
CAUSES OF LOW SPERM COUNT
There are many potential causes of low sperm count and male infertility. Fortunately, we have control over them by reducing exposure to them.
Do you think it is proper to start giving Lecture on how to have good sex life in public as a true African woman?
If people are not talking about sex, there are no ways you can achieve good relationships in marriage. It is important we talk about it ,and we know that in Nigeria, it is almost a taboo to discuss sex. Why are we interested in talking about sex? We have come to realise that in dealing with infertility issues sex must come in. Let me tell you something whenever we are dealing with infertility issues and we have the couple seated and we ask them how many times they have sex in a week. You would see them staring at eachother. Some will tell you point blank that they don’t have sex again. This is not good for young couple. We always tell them that infertility should not be an issue that will cause separation it home. Some people are into relationships but because of religion, they can’t have sex. What if they encounter sexual problems in their marriage what advice would you give to such couple? I think couples should talk about what issues they have with a consultant before marriage. If they do not want to have sex before marriage, there is no problem about that. I believe it will be bad for someone not to tell his/her partner about his problems. I think such a person will be committing a bigger sin.I have witnessed a scenario where a man is largely impotent yet he went on to marry.
What of situations where the pastor endorses such a marriage?
I really do not want to dabble into religion because to some persons they believe what their pastors say and cling to religion even when things are not right. In life religion has a role to play likewise medicine. My advice is that couples who have problems should visit a therapist before getting married.
What is your take on Female circumcision?
It is not good at all, it takes the sensation away, the clitoris they cut makes sensation, during sex possible. These people sometimes cut off a larger chunk of the clitoris. The woman might have desire for sex, but arousal is not there. Sometimes this can dampen or reduce a woman’s sexual desire it does affect it in a big way.
Can this be corrected?
Sure it can be corrected if need be.
How do you see masturbation?
Masturbation is advised in some cases, it is not a taboo medically, it can only become a problem if the man or woman cannot do without it in a day. It leads to pre-mature ejaculation when you are doing it with your wife because the system is used to quick ejaculation.
Did you say different sex positions boost fertility?
No I didn’t say that , it can help prevent quick ejaculation, it also improves couple’s sex life. I t does not have to be missionary style all the time, different styles help correct erectile dysfunction.
Please tell us how important sex is?
Sex is very important, it is a natural instinct, the Quoran and Bible accept it. It should be discussed in case of problems. You talked about sex toys, what of couples whose religions do not accept that ?
That is why I said I do not want to discuss religion, as a couple you do what you think is right. Some people do not even know what their pastors are doing at home,I listened to a pastor and he said someone was complaining that he fights with his wife at home, then he said who does not fight his wife at home. Do whatever pleases you as long as it is legal, If there is a need for sex toys please use them.
Is sex education good, should parent engage their children in sex education?
It is good, as a father you should discuss it with your sons. Parents should try to discuss it with their children because sometimes ignorance can destroy the children.They can learn it at school and get to indulge in it and still hide it from the parents.So, if you tell them about it and tell them what not to do , unwanted pregnancies will be reduced.
Do you recommend oral sex for couples?
As a sex therapist I say yes, it is okay to have oral sex, so long as it is between a married couple who have been tested.
