Trying to conceive

Patient

Q: 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

Doctor
