In younger years, many men spend so much time and energy trying not to get their sexual partners pregnant and by the time they are ready to conceive, they might not understand why it’s difficult. However, several surprising factors and habits from the activities they do, to the products they use and the foods they eat can kill or reduce their sperm production. Its no news that infertility in marriages these days are on the high side. Due to man’s lifestyle, eating habits and certain environmental factors, infertility issues are now common. Estimate shows that 40% of infertility issues are from the man and 20% from the woman.

Here are seven every day habits, foods, activities, and products that may be reducing the power and production of your sperm

1. Lack Of Sex
Even though a lot of people believe that saving up your sperm would make it fertile, researchers have found that a lack of sex can cause sperm to lose its motility. A lack of sex is even worse for men with low sperm count; according to researchers from Soroka University Medical Centre in Israel, lack of sex can cause the sperm to change its shape and this can affect the sperm’s fertility.

2. Hot Car Seat
If you drive around in a heated car seat then you’re unknowingly damaging your sperm quality. The heat from the car seat increases the temperature of the testes which can cause it to decrease in sperm production.

3. Marijuana
Smoking weed might not be cool afterwards. Researchers have found that heavy marijuana smokers have significantly lower sperm counts with poorer motility.


4. Watching TV      
Next time you want to spend all day in front of your TV set, this should come into your mind because a study from the British Journal of sports medicine found that men who watched TV a lot have fewer sperm than men who exercise moderately or vigorously each week. Men who spent over 20 hours a week watching television had 44% lower sperm count than men who spent considerably lesser time on television.

5. Your Shower Items
Your shower items like scented soaps, shampoo etc contain phthalates which have also been researched to lower sperm quality.

6. Receipts
According to a 2010 University of Missouri study, BPA is found in 40% of cash register receipts. BPA has been linked with low sperm count and other fertility issues. The BPA chemical can be passed from the hand to the mouth to the digestive system. So be sure to wash your hands after handling a receipt.

7. Sunscreen
Inasmuch as we know the importance of sunscreen, it can also impair fertility, if research from Longitudinal Investigation of Fertility and the Environment (LIFE) is anything to go by. The study found that the chemicals commonly found in sunscreen can impair fertility by 30%. When the skin absorb chemicals which filter out UV rays, it can interfere with a man’s hormones. It is advised that men with concerns over fertility should wash off sunscreen after use.
