Part 1
Increasing Sperm Count

  1. Image titled Get a Girl Pregnant Step 01
    Start trying to have a baby while you are young. Although some people think a “biological clock” explains a women’s window to get pregnant, men have a harder time getting women pregnant after 40.
    • After 50, a man’s sperm count can be extremely reduced, depending upon genetics and other factors.
  2. Image titled Get a Girl Pregnant Step 02
    Do not consume more than 1 to 2 drinks per day. Doctors suggest 5 to 7 drinks a week is the most you can consume without affecting sperm count.
  3. Image titled Get a Girl Pregnant Step 03
    Stop smoking. Nicotine reduces sperm count and lowers sperm quality, just like alcohol.[1]
  4. Image titled Get a Girl Pregnant Step 04
    Keep your groin cool. Elevated temperatures over your body heat reduce sperm count. The testicles are designed to hang down and stay cool.
    • Don’t spend a lot of time hot tubbing. Also, avoid the sauna and steam room.
    • Don’t sit with your laptop or other electronics on your groin. The hard drive will heat up, so invest in a laptop desk that keeps air between your legs and the computer.

    Choose how you work out carefully. Avoid long cycling sessions. Bike shorts and pressure from the bicycle seat can overheat your sperm and break veins. [2]
    • Pick a type of exercise that doesn’t put too much pressure on the testicles.
    • Wear a cup if you fear contact to the groin.
    • Choose exercise clothing that allows your sexual organs to hang down and stay cool.
    • Exercise usually has a positive effect on sperm count. Men who are overweight are less likely to conceive.

    Avoid prescription drugs. Anti-depressants and drugs for hair loss have been shown to adversely affect sperm count.
    • However, other drugs may also have this side effect. Read the literature describing the medication and ask your doctor, if you are trying to get a woman pregnant.

Part 2
Planning Sexual Intercourse

  1. Image titled Get a Girl Pregnant Step 07
    Ask the woman to stop taking birth control pills or other birth control devices.
    • Ideally, she should stop taking the pills 1 to 2 months before she wants to conceive. Different women will process the hormones differently.
    • If a woman is using an intrauterine device (IUD), she will need to get it surgically removed several months before trying to conceive a child.

    Refrain from using condoms and spermicide during sexual intercourse.
    • Avoid using over the counter lubes, since they can decrease the chances of conception.

    Learn when the woman has her menstrual cycle. You should learn both the beginning and ending dates of her period.
    • Period lengths vary greatly.
    • Some women are irregular, having their period at different times each month.
  4. Image titled Get a Girl Pregnant Step 10
    Calculate ovulation. Ovulation usually occurs approximately 14 days after the first day of the woman’s last period.
    • If a woman has a longer cycle, then it can be 20 days after the first day of her last period.[3]
  5. Image titled Get a Girl Pregnant Step 11
    Increase sexual intercourse the week prior to ovulation. Approximately 1 week after her menstrual cycle, you should increase unprotected sexual activity.[4]
    • Sperm can stay alive inside the woman’s body for up to 6 days.
    • The more you have intercourse during this period, the more likely there will be viable sperm during the conception window.
    • The egg is viable for conception in the time between being released and traveling from the fallopian tubes into the uterus.
    • Starting to have sex after the egg is released will reduce your chances of conception. The egg will die approximately 1 day after ovulation.

    Buy an ovulation prediction kit. Test yourself to find out when you are ovulating over several months. The more you know about your own body, the more you can plan intercourse during the 6 days before the egg drops.
  5. Image titled Get a Girl Pregnant Step 16
    Reduce stress in your life. Both men and women find it harder to conceive in high stress situations. If you have put a lot of stress on yourself to have a baby, it may be working against you.
