Dr. Tracy Gapin joins us today as we’re digging into how to optimize male fertility so that you can get pregnant naturally.
For many men setting up a consult with a doctor or a urologist is the hardest part of the fertility process.
I’ve spoken with so many couples that are struggling with infertility and many tell me that the male partner has not even been examined or received a semen analysis – while the female partner has undergone extensive testing.
This is not to blame the man. Similar to how women may feel that femininity is wrapped up in motherhood. Men may feel emasculated and experience guilt, shame, and low self-worth when they are on the fertility journey.
As you learned last week sperm counts have dropped by more than 50% over the past 40 years.
It is essential that the male partner fully participates in the process as you prepare for pregnancy success.
That’s why our proven Fab Fertile Method includes the partner.
As is the case with egg health – it is important not to myopically focus on semen quality – but to look at the healing opportunities in the whole body – because improving overall health positively impacts the health of the sperm.
I’m excited to welcome Dr. Tracy Gapin MD, FACS is a board-certified urologist, world-renowned men’s health & performance expert, best-selling author, and professional speaker.
In this episode you'll learn:
1) Common themes with male fertility from a urologist so you don’t miss crucial healing opportunities
2) Getting to the bottom of hormonal imbalance and low testosterone and why testosterone therapy is a band-aid approach.
3) How to check for a Varicocele. How effective is a vasectomy reversal? What to do if there is no sperm can this be improved?
4) Addressing gut health, environmental toxins exposure, nutrition, epigenetics, mindset, stress, and more so that semen quality can be restored.
