The most common cause of problems when trying to conceive is women just being too old, but nevertheless, what this study found could help men improve their sperm quality and thus, their offspring quality.
A long-standing belief by medical professionals when it comes to trying to have a baby may be incorrect, it seems. Two researchers from the Center for Reproductive Medicine of Shenjing Hospital in Shenyang, China say that abstaining from sex between conception efforts is unnecessary and could even worsen a women’s chances of becoming pregnant.
Research by Dr. Da Li and Dr. XiuXia Wang suggest that fertility clinic doctors could be giving men bad advice when they’re trying to conceive with their partners.
“For years, men have usually been advised to limit sexual activity to increase the chances of pregnancy,” said Dr. Li in a release by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. “However, it’s time to change our minds.”
No, goyim, if you want to make babies, you have to have less unprotected sex.
This is because sperm is just like women: the older, the better.
This “have more sex if you want to make babies” kind of common sense being contrary to what “medical professionals” usually recommend makes one wonder what these doctors are really up to.
In addition to seeing sperm move faster if produced after a shorter abstinence period, the researchers found molecular differences that made cell adhesion, or the function the sperm undertakes to fuse with eggs, easier. They say the longer sperm exists, the more they face DNA damage from reactive oxygen — potentially hampering their ability to form a healthy embryo.
“Our data indicate that couples with relatively normal semen parameters should have frequent sex around the ovulation period,” says Dr. Li. “This could make all the difference to their efforts to start a family.”
Thank you, Chinese Doctor.
Now there’s another — more uncomfortable — aspect of fertility to explore: women’s age and how it relates to not only the likelihood of conceiving but also to the egg quality and to the health of the offspring.
If we’re really concerned about making babies, we should be using the brand new baby making machines to get the job done instead of relying on the outdated, obsolete models.
I mean, would you rather use this washing machine and risk getting tetanus:
…or this one?
The choice is yours.
