Postby moline543 » Sat Nov 01, 2003 10:42 pm

I am wondering if anyone knows things a man can do that will temp. lower his sperm count. I feel like I have seem some of you write about this in the past, but I don't remember where.

I thought you meant "temperature" lowers sperm count! [:I] I have heard that it does, actually. That is, heat to the "sperm makers", will lower the count - hence the advice that if you want to conceive, he should switch to boxer shorts. (Let them breathe.) But then we never switched, and we conceived again and again (and again and again...)

I have read that if hubby sits in a very hot bath for 20 minutes a day the heat will cause him to shoot blanks for a while.
