The goal for men with Fluids PFPs is improving the movement and nature of their body fluids. Healthy adults are 60% water, and when body fluids move slowly, they build up or get thicker, which causes heaviness, aching and tiredness. These excess fluids can also affect hormone balance, alter temperature and reduce male fertility.
An ideal hydration level is about 60% for healthy adults (it falls on either side of a normal BMI), and the quality, movement and balance of body fluids are crucial for health. Imagine if our bodies had an extra 20% liquids or if they were thinner or thicker! It would dramatically change blood flow and how we feel and function, yet fluids are generally overlooked as a health issue. The extra or thicker fluids that Fluids PFPs have makes tissues swell and reduce all types of circulation. If fluids congeal they can block glands or tubes and disrupt sperm production.
Circulation is essential for organ and muscle health, and when sticky fluids slow things down, it can create tiredness that usually improves with movement. Fluid problems are surprisingly common and can affect any part of the body, with typical signs of swelling, aching, woolly-headedness, dizziness or nausea. Because body fluids moisten our skin, the skin can reveal some common fluid imbalances:
Body fluids play a significant role in male fertility, from the quality of an erection to the health of sperm:
These problems usually show up as liquefaction and viscosity issues in semen tests, and the causes include infections, altered immunity and hormonal issues. The prostate gland is a central player in semen production and health, as this is where sperm are mixed with fluids from various glands.

Prostate problems are usually considered an older man’s issue, but the cause often starts earlier in life, and swelling of the prostate has connections to important fertility factors:
Higher insulin and BMI affect sex hormone levels and encourage body fluids to become sticky. This makes an increase in weight more likely and blood sugar level control more difficult, which has unfortunate consequences for male fertility as:
There are SIX issues that encourage the development of Fluids PFP dynamics, and understanding the drivers makes it much easier for a Fluids PFP to reverse them.

We also outline the best ways for Fluids PFPs to adjust their weight and manage stress to improve monthly conception rates. The different profiles have different challenges and needs, which is all part of the PFP discussion, along with personalised ways to improve fertility health, and the tests and treatments most likely to be appropriate for you.
