Infertility is generally considered a problem associated with women and our society also considers women to some extent responsible for not having children. But if the World Health Organization report on infertility in India, then about 50 percent of all cases related to infertility in India were related to male infertility. Worldwide, more than 50 million couples are facing the problem of infertility and even if they are unable to give birth to a child.
According to AIIMS doctors, where the sperm count of Indian adult men used to be 60 million per milliliter about 30 years ago, it has now come down to 20 million per milliliter. Infertility Specialist Dr. Jyoti Bali also believes that male infertility is the biggest reason for couples with age group of 29 to 35 years who are having difficulty in conceiving. These males either have low sperm count, either do not have proper sperm mobility or may have other problems. There are many factors and factors that cause damaging men’s sperm and most of them are lifestyle habits that you can easily control.
If the BMI (body mass index) of a man is more than 30, then it directly affects the quality of a person’s sperm because the fat accumulation in the body has a direct effect on hormones like male sex hormones testosterone and androgen. Also, due to obesity, the load increases on metabolism and also on the development of sperm. Once the testosterone levels in the body decrease, then the sex drive decreases and problems related to erections begin. So try to control your weight and reduce obesity.
According to experts, when it comes to lifestyle factors, the risk of mail infertility is highest among men who smoke cigarettes and drink alcohol, especially heavy drinkers, because these things affect both the quality and quality of the sperm. These additives have a negative effect on the production of sperm. Nicotine, found in cigarettes, causes imbalance and oxidative stress in the body, affecting both fertilization and the quality of the sperm.
If you have diabetes and are not using medication to control the disease, it can cause erectile dysfunction, which also reduces testosterone levels, worsens the semen’s quality and is associated with ejaculation. There may be problems. So it is very important that you protect yourself from diabetes and if you get diabetes, then keep it under control through diets and medicines.
