Men Beware Of Laptops !! Laptop Can Reduce Your Fertility

Are you unmarried? Are you planning to be a father? If the answer is yes to any of the above questions then avoid using laptop on your lap, so that your chances for fatherhood is not pushed down. Taking care of small things in everyday life will ensure that you steer clear of many health issues.

Numerous studies conducted worldwide have undoubtedly proven the fact that men working constantly in above normal heat conditions face infertility issues. Heat can affect the quality of the semen adversely, resulting in failure to start a family.

Regular users of the laptop should be alerted that excessive use of laptop is determinant in causing male infertility. When the laptop is placed on the lap close to the scrotum, even for a short period of fifteen minutes, it will cause an increase in the scrotum temperature considerably, causing the sperm quality to deteriorate. Internal operating temperatures of Laptops can cross more than 70°C.

Appropriate scrotal temperature should be maintained for the normal production of sperm. In recent times there has been an enormous increase in number of male infertility cases. Reduction of sperm production has now become a common complication faced by a large number of male population. This can be correlated to the substantial increase in the use of laptop. Frequent use of Sauna or hot tubs is also not prudent as this can also elevate testicular temperature.

 Key to the problem : it will be judicious on part of men to place the laptop on a table or desktop rather than on their lap and avoid exposing your body to high temperature for long duration.
