    Keep it cool: Keep the scrotal area cool and breathing. Wear loose clothing, and preferably go for boxer shorts. Tight clothing or briefs compresses the testes and leaves it no room to breathe, which in turn increases the temperature around that area and may lead to a low sperm count.

    Antioxidants: Grab that apple now! A diet rich in antioxidants increases the sperm count. Include strawberries, plums, black beans etc. in your diet to boost fertility.

    More sex: Having frequent sex, all along, increases fertility. Research indicates that semen is in its top form when sex occurred less than two days prior.

    Smoking: You already know this, but we will spell it for you nonetheless. Smoking not only decreases the sperm count but also leads to defects in them. Quitting cigarettes, even two months prior to trying to conceive can work wonders.

    Alcohol: Alcohol reduces testosterone production, which may lead to shrinking of the testes and a fall in sperm count.

    Steroids: Anabolic steroids can lead to testicular shrinkage. Even testosterone-based supplements can interfere with sperm production.

    Don't over-exercise: Exercising is excellent, but taking it to a level of exhaustion every day is not recommended as it lowers the quality of sperm.
