In addition to genetic and some organic sexually transmitted diseases, male infertility is closely related to lifestyle. Understanding or overcoming these bad habits in daily life can at least reduce or avoid the occurrence of male infertility. What factors can cause male sperm loss and infertility?
1、 Disordered and unclean sexual life
Disordered and unclean sexual life can easily cause male reproductive tract infections. Pathogens that cause genital tract infections include gonococci, tuberculosis bacilli, viruses, mycoplasma, chlamydia, and trichomonas, among which mycoplasma and chlamydia infections are the most common. Genital tract infections first affect sperm production and transportation, leading to oligospermia and a decline in reproductive capacity. Genital tract infection can also cause changes in sperm motility. Genital tract infection can inhibit the secretion of accessory gonads, resulting in insufficient secretion of semen, nutrient deficiency of semen, changes in pH, and changes in semen composition, which can affect the growth environment of sperm, causing a serious decline in sperm motility and quantity, leading to infertility.
2、 Smoking and drinking
Men are quite sensitive to toxins in tobacco and alcohol, especially reproductive cells. According to research, nicotine in tobacco leaves has the effect of reducing sexual hormone secretion and killing sperm. "For those who smoke 30 cigarettes a day, the sperm survival rate is only 49%, and the secretion of male hormones in smokers is 16% to 47% lower than that in non smokers, resulting in a corresponding reduction in the ability to produce sperm.". Prolonged alcohol abuse can damage spermatogenic cells in the testis and affect sperm production.
