Stress (physically or mentally): It is most likely common in men now a days, the stress with which each and every person goes through is very high nowadays and in the case of men,this causes hormonal imbalance which in turn causes the misfunctioning of the testosterone.
Overheating the testicles: Sometimes situation might arise when you need to place your laptop on your lap for long time or maybe you need to wear tight undergarments. This heavily affects the production of sperm in your body and in turn, lessens your chances of making your partner pregnant. Avoid placing the laptops on your lap for long time and avoid wearing tight undergarments.
Age: Age is a major factor in the production of sperms in men. When a human male reaches 70 to 80 years of age, he happens to be much less sexually active than what he was when he was young.
Riding a bicycle: Recent studies have shown that riding a bicycle can potentially lessen the production and passage of sperm in a man’s body due to the pressure of the seat.
