Women who have been diagnosed with a heart condition should check with their physician to see if treatment and pregnancy are safe for them. Fortunately, there are options like egg donation and/or surrogacy to help build a family if health would be at risk.
According to a study conducted at Stanford University, there is a link between normal sperm status and overall health. After studying the records of nearly 10,000 men, the researchers found that about half the men had abnormal sperm. Taking it a step further, they also found that heart, vascular and blood pressure problems could have played a role in causing their infertility. The study authors recommend that men try to decrease stress and stick to a Mediterranean diet to improve their fertility while decreasing blood pressure.
