More and more men are finding it hard to produce these days.There are several factors apart from lingering STAPH.AUREUS infection and other microbial infections in the male’s reproductive and body system that can lead to Low Sperm Count.Damaged sperm is a major reason for many a couple’s infertility issues.
Researchers have shown that a man’s lifestyle can also affect the quality and quantity of his sperm, hence fertility issues.
Anyway, here are some ways men unwittingly cause the damage:
ALWAYS CARRYING PHONE IN THE POCKET: Studies have shown that there is the radiation a mobile phone emits so close to the scrotal area causes as much a 9% drop in live sperm per Fluid sample. So it better to hold the phone or carry it in a case or, at worse, the back pocket.
LEAVING STRESS UNATTENDED TO: A man who is always stressed, maybe due to overworking, is inadvertently killing his swimmers. Every body function, including sperm production, is affected by stress. Researchers found out that men with anxiety issues tend to have abnormally shaped sperm and sperm with mobility issues. Now, an immobile sperm is useless because they have to swim far to marry an egg for conception.
DRINKING TOO MUCH OF ALCOHOL: Alcohol is a big enemy of sperm. In fact, the British Medical Journal suggests that having as little as five drinks (alcohol) weekly can ‘adversely affect’ the Fluid quality.
SMOKING TOO MUCH: Blowing the smoke always has a negative impact on sperm quality. However, a researcher says, once a man quits, his system immediately starts generating healthier sperm.
PILING UP EXTRA WEIGHT: Being fit has a lot of advantages. Being fat lowers sperm production and can cause erectile dysfunction (ED) or impotence? Losing just a little amount of weight can help.
STAYING TOO MUCH IN HOT AREAS: Being exposed to too much heat regularly has dire consequences for a man’s sperm. A welder for example might be at risk. A man’s genital region needs to be cooler than the other parts of the body, not hotter.
If you have hopes of getting a child in the future, now might be a time to be conscious of your lifestyle, instead of worrying later.
Alcohol, fat, smoking, stress and all the other factors must be monitored.
