One thing I forgot to mention was during this whole experience before I signed the contract and set a date to go to Kenya. I thought; I’m a pretty healthy person, I eat right, go to the gym, take all my vitamins, but I should probably test my semen. Being a gay man I’ve never had to do a semen analysis, no one was getting pregnant near me. So off I go to this Bahraini hospital to test my semen. I forgot to mention that I do have a vice, I smoke. Yes, I enjoy coming home after a long stressful day and smoke a joint. People have a glass wine, I smoke.
So not thinking anything about it, smoking the night before, I cum in a cup and off I went. The next day when the results came back, I nearly hit the floor. My swimmers were stoned! My mobility was at 5%, and the average man’s progressive motility should be 32% or more. I quickly send my results to the doctor, and he says, look it’s low, but with In-vitro fertilization (IVF), you don’t need to be too worried. TOO WORRIED!! Hell no. So I stopped smoking immediately, started hitting the gym hard, researched what foods to eat to improve your sperm. I was eating pomegranates, asparagus, Bananas, eggs, spinach, dark chocolate, Oysters, anything with Zinc. I started taking L-arginine, Zinc, Essential fatty acids, chromium, selenium, copper, vitamin E, C, and B-complex vitamins. I started making my fruit, and veggie shakes in the morning mixing in MACA root and pure cocoa for extra Arginine. I even went to an Ayurvedic clinic, and they gave me Vajitone and Kapikachhu. A teaspoon of each in hot milk, first thing in the morning. It basically tasted like dirt that I put in a half cup of hot almond milk; I wanted to vomit. Literally every morning for three months I was battling with keeping everything down.
Did you know that it takes a sperm about 72 days to go from a germ cell to a fully mature sperm cell capable of fertilizing an egg. So two months later I go again to test my boys. My mobility shot up to 62% well above the average; the doctor didn’t believe it was the results of the same person. He joked and said to be careful around women. My boys were back in business. Oh and by the way you can’t masturbate four days before you deposit, because it takes four days for an average man to get the best sperm ready to go full force. Do you have any idea how hard it is not to masturbate when you are told not too!
