For the past several decades, sperm quality and fertility rates have been in decline in most Western nations, including the United States. A 2017 study found that between 1973 and 2011 the average sperm count in North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand dropped by almost 60%. No one knows exactly why this is happening.
Sperm count is one of the factors that can impact male fertility. There are medications to help low sperm count, but, according to the web site Medical News Today, non-pharmacological methods are the first recommended line of treatment. For example, exercise and sleep have been shown to improve sperm count, while smoking has long been known to reduce overall health, sperm production, and quality.
