    Atomic, do you think abstaining for DH as opposed to FR is marginally better? After much reading & thinking on it I think my DH may need to do FR as he is 38yo. Whadda ya reckon? He seems to be pretty fertile but him & his swimmers are no spring chickens any longer!

    the deal with abstain has nothing to do with his fertility, viritily, health, etc. It is solely age - the number of times his cells have divided over the course of his life. The more times the cells have divided, the more opportunity there is for tiny changes, mistakes even, in DNA to creep in and worsen over the course of many divisions. This makes for higher risks of birth defects and the abstain adds to that by allowing higher numbers of bad sperm to build up.

    I think there's something to that! I also picture my DH's sperm in need of tiny walkers and oxygen tanks!

    So, does Ph matter or not? I'm still confused! Is it just as good to use preseed for ttcblue, and follow the HE diet? IS there a benefit to ph testing and eating alkaline foods?
