Katie Visco

Are you tired of being the only one changing up your diet during your fertility journey? Well as it turns out, a man's diet can affect their fertility too. Here's a look at a few of the items your significant other should try to avoid. 

1. Alcohol 

 Alcohol is one of the biggest items to avoid. According to The Guardian, just 5 drinks a week can decrease the quality of a man's sperm. "For women, however, 7 glasses of wine a week has been associated with an increased fertility. So go ahead and enjoy that glass of wine with dinner, but remember to keep count of your significant other's drinks.

2. Soda

There is an ongoing debate about which ingredient in soda affects male fertility. While it has not been proven if it is the caffeine or the high fructose corn syrup, it has been found that soda can hinder sperm development, thus lowering the sperm count.

3. Soy
