Trying to conceive

Patient : Hello Doctor, We have recently started planning for a baby. I have read and heard that taking vitamin C rich fruits such as Lemon and Oranges harm the sperms. I have a habit of taking half a lemon with hot water and pinch of salt in the morning on empty stomach. My query is, would the lemon water (quantity mentioned above) destroy the sperms? Should i avoid or can i continue, as it keeps my body weight moderate. I as such do not take lots of oranges or lemon. I limit to 1 orange a day with lemon water in the morning. Kindly advice on the above situation, your advice would be highly beneficial to me at this point of time. Thanks & Regards, Malini
