Gentlemen who drive for a long time, sit in a hot seat easily lead to high temperatures in the “little boy”, bad effect on the testicles, reducing both quality and quantity of sperm. This is an easy cause of infertility.
Mr. Hoang Van Cuong is a delivery employee of a shared online sales company, so he has to travel a lot by motorbike. Almost every day Mr. Cuong also has to go outside for at least 4 hours.
“Every time we deliver products to customers, the saddle to sit in the sun when sitting up makes me very uncomfortable. I just got married again, so I really worry that this will affect the genitals and sperm to give birth. ”
Mr. Nguyen Dinh Quan (31 years old, a kiln worker in Quang Ninh) is planning to move his job. After 2 years of marriage, the couple cannot have children yet. The results of male examination showed that Mr. Quan’s sperm was diluted, in small quantity and of poor quality.
According to the doctor’s advice, it is the regular working environment in the high temperature environment that has affected his sperm quality.
The story of Mr. Cuong and Mr. Quan makes many people worried because of the increasing infertility. Meanwhile, because of work, many people often have to be exposed to hot sun or high temperature.
Why does the temperature on the saddle affect the testicles?
Mr. Le Minh Chau, former Deputy Head of the Medical Examination Department (Central Obstetrics Hospital) said that the saddle is too hot (due to sun exposure) will make the scrotum become hot. Where the scrotum is the place where sperm production is not exposed, the temperature is higher than the body temperature.
Thus, if the short duration of the scrotum can regulate heat, it will cause a large damage to the testicle function longer.
Increasing testicular temperature also damages sperm production, by killing germ cells (germ cell apoptosis) and reducing the production of male hormone – testosterone.
However, not everyone who goes outside in the sun is affected, it must be those who are constantly exposed to the hot sun to be affected.
A study was conducted on Cynomolgus monkeys when exposed to testicles at a temperature of 43 degrees C for 30 minutes daily and for 6 consecutive days.
After 6-8 weeks, some monkeys had no sperm in the semen, while the rest of the monkeys showed serious reduction in sperm count and had to arrive after 12 weeks coincidence begins to recover.
In addition to affecting the ability of spermatozoa, this test also noted that exposure to high temperatures also reduced the amount of testosterone hormone in the blood. . Therefore, the area of the scrotum should be avoided at extremely high temperatures.
So what do you need to do when you’re outside?
For those who work in a high temperature environment, if this temperature increase persists for 15-20 days, sperm production will be adversely affected. So, during the time they want to have children, they should take a break.
Do not wear too tight clothing, limit wearing underwear at home. Wear tight pants, ride bicycles for many hours, keep the laptop constantly on the lap, take a sauna … can make two testicles hot, spawn less and weak sperm.
In addition, men should eliminate bad habits such as drinking alcohol, smoking, staying up late, … so as not to adversely affect sperm health.
