Stress influence on male fertility

In this latest study - published in the journal Fertility and Sterility and led by researchers from Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health in New York, NY, and Rutgers School of Public Health in Piscataway, NJ - the team investigated whether stress may affect sperm and semen quality.
Although workplace stress did not directly affect semen quality in the men, the researchers found that those who experienced job strains had lower levels of the hormone testosterone in their semen, which could affect reproductive health.
Our research suggests that men's reproductive health may also be affected by their social environment." The researchers note that this is the first study to use subjective and objective measures of stress and, as a result, find links with reduced semen quality.
