4 Bad Habits That Could Make Men Infertile

Here are habits that have been linked to infertility in men.

Overheating the testicles.

Frequent use of saunas or hot tubs can temporarily lower the sperm count, as can sitting , wearing tight clothing, or working on a laptop for extended periods.


Smoking or any form of tobacco consumption can take a huge toll on your reproductive health. In men, it can reduce your sperm quality and lead to hormonal imbalances.

Self Medication

Never take any medication without consulting a doctor. There are certain medications that can affect your fertility. If you are using medications, talk to your doctor on the side effects as well. Some people resort to taking steroids to increase muscle mass and for body building.

This is extremely unhealthy. Anabolic steroids which are known to stimulate muscle strength and growth can have tremendous negative effects like causing the testicles to shrink and sperm production to decrease.

Exposure to Pesticides and Herbicides

The troubling link between pesticide exposure and fertility isn’t new; scientists have already established that people who work with pesticides tend to have lower fertility than people who don’t.

Eating fruits and vegetables with high amounts of pesticide residue—such as strawberries, spinach, peppers, or grapes may reduce male fertility too.
