I don’t know… I feel like putting a bunch of restrictions on when your man masturbates, what kind of underwear he wears, what he eats and drinks, etc. is a lot of pressure and may take a bit of the fun out of things.  Especially in the early months of TTC.

… To each his/her own, though.  Maybe some guys like feeling proactive and that gives them a sense of control over what is in many ways uncontrollable.

My husband cut out his snacking and sodas pretty much completely and he’s lost 70 pounds to go with my weight loss!  He’s currently subjecting himself to taking several supplements just to boost things.  He’s also done 2 sperm analysis tests and is very supportive of me and anything I’m going through.

My fiance has cut down massively on caffeine (he did drink a lot of coffee!) and is taking the vitsmins.  We have both cut down on alocohol.  According to my reaearch, “saving the sperm” has no impact on conception, but there contradictory advice out there!

@sailor:   My husband is doing all of this volutarily.  He’s seen everything that I’ve had to go through in the past nearly 3 years and feels like doing these things is nothing compared to what I’ve had to do, so it’s only fair.

@dodgercpkl:  I know you’ve had a long and difficult road TTC and IMO that definitely changes things.  OP didn’t say, but for some reason I got the impression that she was new to TTC in which case, unless her husband actively wants to cut out caffiene, take vitamins, etc., I think it would be more enjoyable for both of them to take a relaxed approach in the early days.  

If they’ve been trying awhile or have known medical issues, I absolutely agree that both people should get on board with being as proactive as can be… it’s not fair when it all falls on the woman.

I have to say, I haven’t specifically asked Darling Husband not to masturbate, but with our scheduled it’s hard enough to BD all the time, so I’d be pretty pissed if he wasted any energy on that.  We average maybe 10x/month, but it’s a little tough to pack so much into one week!

I’m trying to get the caffeine intake cut down, but it’s a tough sell for sure.  Darling Husband has also tried to quit smoking but has fallen off the bandwagon a couple of times.

No laptops or anything hot or with an electromagnetic field near his lap.

Reduce pesticide and other toxin load (especially hormone disrupting toxins like phthalates etc.)
