Since ancient times, a family has always been accustomed to blaming the consequences of infertility on women. Little did they know that infertility is not necessarily the fault of the woman, and male infertility still accounts for a considerable proportion of the causes of infertility. The following are some life suggestions for male infertility patients, hoping to be helpful to everyone.
1. Don't wear tight jeans
Andrologists and urologists believe that tight jeans not only compress male reproductive organs and affect normal testicular development, but also hinder sperm survival due to their lack of breathability and heat dissipation. Under normal circumstances, the testicular temperature is 3 ℃ to 4 ℃ lower than the body temperature.
2. Don't ride a racing car for too long
The height of the handlebar of the racing car is lower than the seat, the center of gravity leans forward, and the lumbar curvature increases. The testis and prostate of the perineum cling to the cushion. After being squeezed for a long time, it will become ischemic, edematous, and inflamed, affecting the production of sperm and the normal secretion of prostatic fluid and semen, resulting in infertility. Therefore, young men should not ride racing cars for a long time, and should not exceed one hour per day. Sponge covers should be used to protect the perineal cushion.
3. Don't take a shower at too high a temperature
Under normal circumstances, sperm must develop normally in a constant temperature environment of 34 ℃ to 35 ℃. When bathing, the water temperature is too high, which often leads to hidden dangers. When taking a sauna, the room temperature can reach as high as 70 ℃ to 80 ℃, which is more than twice the normal bathroom temperature, which is not conducive to the growth of sperm or can cause excessive "dead sperm" and lead to infertility. Medical experts have learned from the causes of male infertility that some men are unable to survive due to testicular temperatures being 2-3 degrees higher than normal. Therefore, young people should be cautious when taking a sauna, and the water temperature for bathing should also be around 34 ℃.
4. Be careful not to lack zinc or selenium in your diet
Trace element zinc can promote sperm motility, prevent premature disintegration of sperm, and facilitate binding with eggs, indicating that zinc has a significant impact on fertility. Selenium is also an essential trace element in the human body, almost entirely derived from food. Therefore, young men should not be partial eaters and should pay attention to eating foods rich in zinc and selenium, such as fish, oysters, liver, soybeans, brown rice, etc.
5. Do not inhale kitchen fumes
Recently, a study by the School of Medicine at Shanghai Railway University found that 74 chemicals in kitchen fumes can cause cell mutations, leading to infertility and becoming a new "criminal evidence" of "family killers". They found that the mutation rate of the cell chromosome of Drosophila melanogaster fed with the condensed oil in the kitchen cooking fume oil cup was 0. 54%, with 2. 8% of fruit flies are infertile, indicating significant damage to their reproductive system.
