 Having Sex Daily Linked to Healthy Sperm

Dr David Greening of Sydney IVF has said that having regular sex will make sperm healthy and increase the chances of women getting pregnant.

In a study on 118 men with fertility issues, Dr Greening and colleagues found that ejaculating daily for one week reduced sperm DNA damage from 34% to 26% in 81% of the participants.


"It seems safe to conclude that couples with relatively normal semen parameters should have sex daily for up to a week before the ovulation date," Dr Greening said in a statement. "In the context of assisted reproduction, this simple treatment may assist in improving sperm quality and ultimately achieving a pregnancy."

The findings were presented to the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology in Amsterdam on Tuesday.
