It may be hard to determine which herb or combination of herbs may help to increase a man’s fertility. An option is to buy an herbal blend that combines many herbs and vitamins to increase a man’s ejaculate and virility. A man must have a good appetite for sex when trying to conceive takes longer than planned. Men sometimes become tired and frustrated with having sex “on demand”. There are several supplements to consider. There are two such products that I highly recommend for any man who is trying to produce a child. The first one is called Fertilaid for Men and the second one is called Fertility Blend for Men. This will keep a guy energetic and more likely to be able to perform when needed. If you are using an herbal supplement without vitamins already in it, you should be sure to supplement with a multi-vitamin, also. Men can sometimes have a low sperm count or motility from a lack of a particular vitamin or mineral.
*Be careful when taking L-Arginine if you have the herpes virus as it can cause it to become worse.
