Fertility, weight and men with Dr Andrew Orr plus tips from our nutritionist

The Healthy Mummy Gets Chatty with Dr Andrew Orr plus tips from nutritionist Cheree Sheldon

On this episode of The Healthy Mummy Gets Chatty our founder Rhian Allen chats to Dr Andrew Orr about how men with weight problems can lead to infertility issues.

Males tend to get missed with infertility issues; and may be a bigger part of the reproductive issues now rather than females. Dr. Orr, with over 20 years of experience in assisting reproductive issues, explains how the healthier a man is, the healthier sperm is. Healthier, fertile sperm comes from decreased body fat, decreased alcohol intake, and increased exercise.

After Rhian’s chat with Dr Orr our nutritionist Cheree Sheldon (9mins 28secs), talks about her top tips to get hubby on board with a healthier lifestyle.

Her top tips:

  • Get your partner involved and invested in the change,
  • Share the alarming statistics of how 75% of men are overweight,
  • Get him emotionally attached to wanting to be healthy: for fertility, or for your family.
