these are common ways men damage thier sperms without knowing 👇


1. Tight underwears


Wearing tight underwears like pants or shorts keep your testicles closer to the body, leading to warmer temperatures that may kill sperm & lower sperm count.


Wear boxers instead of tight pants, & go to bed naked if you want to become a father.


2. Hot baths


Bathing with hotwater frequently exposes your testicles to heat, which reduces your sperm count.


The same thing happens to men who use saunas often.


In fact, if you’re worried about infertility, it’s best to bath with cold water.


Avoid hot water baths!


3. Infections


Infections of the testicles (e.g. mumps orchitis), sperm tube (epididymitis) & STI’s like HIV & gonorrhea can cause subsequent permanent damage to the testis may occur, leading to low infertility.


4. Varicoceles

Varicoceles (swelling of the testis veins) is a major cause of low sperm count & infertility in men.


Sperm cells are very fragile.


Varicoceles create abnormal temperature inside the testis, which might kill sperm and reduce sperm quality.


Treat your varicoceles now.


5. Laptops


An average laptop generates heat of up to 70°C during use.


Placing it directly on your laps can transfer some of that heat to your testis.


Prolonged use may cause irreversible changes in your male reproductive function.


Use your laptop on a desk or table rather.


6. Drugs

Some common legal & illegal drugs affect sperm e.g.,


– blood pressure pills like Atenolol

– anti-inflammatory drugs like Sulfasalazine

– most anti-cancer drugs

– cocaine, &

– many herbal remedies like the herb Tripterygium wilfordii


7. Mobile phones

Men are hence advised to keep their cell phones as far away from the testicles as possible, e.g., hold in your hand or back pocket instead of front pocket.


Heat & radiation from phones can damage sperm.


Studies have shown that using a phone for as little as 1 hr a day ‘cooks sperm’.


8. Smoking

Analysis of smokers’ semen show the presence of tobacco in their sperm.


This lowers sperm count & sperm ability to swim actively to fertilize a woman’s egg.


So smoking damages a man’s sperm in such a way that fertilization becomes difficult.


Avoid smoking.


9. Marijuana/weed

Weed 🌿 lowers the level of testosterone, a hormone needed by the body to produce sperm.


Regular taking marijuana in any form can reduce your sperm count by as much as a one-third!


Weed also slows down sperm motility.


Beware of weed!


10. Steroids


A serious issue nowadays is some guys take steroids to build muscles


Steroids harm sperm by making the testicles believe there’s enough testosterone in the body, so they should completely relax.


This leads to reduced sperm production & male infertility.


Stop steroid abuse.


11. Alcohol.

Alcohol use can lower testosterone levels & cause decreased sperm production.


A lot of couples currently have fertility problems & a large part of that is sperm-related.


Sperm counts have been declining steadily over the past 50 years.


Men, avoid those factors listed & boost your sperm count, motility, viability & overall fertility.
