It is no secret that women suffer infertility, however this is not limited to the female folk as men suffer it too.

Causes of male infertility include:

  1. Using steroid- this causes the testicles to shrink thereby rendering the man infertile.

  2. Malnutrition and anemia.

  3. Wearing tight pants and boxers- this causes infertility by decreasing the production of sperm due to the heat created by the tight underwear, this heat affects the scrotum negatively.

  4. Lots of intense workouts- Too much of high intense exercise is capable of rendering a man infertile as this causes the body to produce lots of adrenal steroid hormones, which then cause a testosterone deficiency.

  5. Smoking– this significantly decreases both sperm count and sperm cell motility, which is the ability to move spontaneously and actively.

  6. A prolonged use of marijuana and other recreational drugs.

  7. Chronic alcohol abuse.

  8. Lack of adequate vitamin C and Zinc in the diet.

The above show that male infertility depends a lot on health, so, men who live a healthy lifestyle are more likely to produce healthy sperm, thereby their reducing chances of infertility.
