As we all know, many drivers and office white-collar men often sit too long, which can lead to prostate disease, but many often standing can also have a serious impact on male fertility, leading to male infertility. In order to give you a more comprehensive understanding of the harm of long-term standing to men, let's introduce the mechanism and prevention methods of male infertility caused by long-term standing in detail.
The mechanism of infertility caused by prolonged standing is similar to that of sedentary sitting, both of which are due to poor testicular venous blood flow and retention in the blood vessels, causing obstruction of the spermatic veins in the scrotum, and possibly causing abnormal swelling, leading to varicocele. Some people may experience pain in the testicles, inner thighs, groins, and waist. In severe cases, prominent blood vessels can be seen from the outside.
These problems not only affect the reproductive health of men, but also have a significant impact on their fertility. Because blood retention in the spermatic vein can increase the local temperature of the testis and prevent the timely removal of metabolic waste, resulting in insufficient nutrition for the testis; At the same time, the left spermatic vein reverses blood flow, bringing metabolites secreted by the adrenal glands and kidneys to the testis, inhibiting sperm production, and affecting sperm quality and quantity. In the long run, it may even affect testicular function, leading to testicular softening, reduced volume, and other phenomena.
So for men who need to stand for a long time at work, how can they ensure their health? Men who need to work on their feet for a long time should walk or sit down for a rest every hour. If you suspect that you have varicocele, you can observe yourself first. "Those who cannot see varicose veins after standing and holding their breath, but can feel venous masses are mild;"; Moderate cases where the venous mass can be seen and felt, and the mass can gradually disappear after lying flat; "The naked eye can see and palpable obvious earthworm-like veins, which disappear slowly to severe even when lying flat.". Generally speaking, people with no symptoms or mild symptoms can only use scrotal braces or wear tight underwear to enhance the scrotum. If you have severe pain symptoms, be sure to seek medical attention in a timely manner.
Therefore, male friends should pay attention to the issue of infertility caused by prolonged standing in their daily lives. Nowadays, more and more male infertility occurs, and many male work and life habits are inseparable. You can refer to the above methods for self care to maximize your health and prevent the occurrence of male infertility.
