Guys: Watch Out for Your Own Infertility

August 10, 2017
Katie Visco

Male infertility may be more common than you think, and now doctors are saying it is on the rise. There are many factors that influence infertility in men, and it is likely that you are currently dealing with one or more of them. While male fertility and infertility are still being researched, some of the most common factors you should be aware of include:

  1. Smoking
  2. Long, hot baths
  3. Wearing tight underwear
  4. Steroid use
  5. Using laptops on your lap
  6. Obesity
  7. Exposure to heavy metals

Do you experience or deal with any of these in your daily life? It can be stressful if you do, and it is important not to underestimate the importance of male fertility when trying to conceive. Oftentimes, the pressure of fertility is placed on the woman, but that can leave their male partner's role completely overlooked. Dr. Human Faterni, a consultant in reproductive medicine, confirms that "two out of nine men suffer from fertility problems". With numbers like those, why aren't we placing more of an emphasis on male fertility? Now it's time to start. The most important thing you can focus on as a male trying to conceive is to focus on living a healthy life. A healthy person is more likely to produce healthy sperm. Dr.Faterni urges men to regularly see their physician, and then a specialist if they feel they are having issues with conceiving. Don't delay your doctor visits, they can be extremely helpful in these cases!
