Did you know that not all male infertility issues are caused by medical conditions?
Meet Dele, a website designer and who works remotely. He just moved out of his parent’s house to stay in a one-room apartment. Cool yeah! Six months later, Dele doesn’t have a table, so he places his laptop on his lap (as the name implies) all the time.
Dele stays on his own now, so his babe comes more often. These days, she hasn’t been getting sexual satisfaction from him as she used to 6 months ago. Dele’s sex drive is low and poor ejaculation too? What could have happened?
Exposure to harmful environmental elements such as heat, radiation, x-rays, toxins, and chemicals reduces sperm function and can cause Male Infertility.
Several lifestyle factors also affect fertility in men. These include but are not limited to nutrition, weight, and exercise; physical and psychological stress; environmental and occupational exposures; substance and drug use and abuse; and medications.
Sitting for long periods, placing a laptop on the lap for a long time, and even wearing tight clothing will overheat the testicles. Research shows that elevated temperatures affect sperm production. Exposure to radiation and dangerous chemicals like pesticides, herbicides and, painting materials can also reduce sperm count.
Lifestyle and behavioural factors such as smoking, eating disorders can lead to overweight affecting sperm production
Excessive consumption of alcohol reduces testosterone levels. Drug abuse might lead to erectile dysfunction. Research shows that using body-building medications, steroids o build muscle or androgens can affect sperm formation.
Not all fertility problems are medically related. Be deliberate about your work and leisure lifestyle as they might not all be healthy.
