If you want to give yourself the best chance of becoming a dad, firstly, it’s time to change your underwear!
A recent study of 2500 men revealed tight pants had the biggest effect on sperm quality.
This is because the optimum temperature for sperm production is a couple of degrees cooler than the body’s temperature of 37 degrees..
Wearing tight pants raises the testicles closer to the body which in turn heats them up. This warm environment can lead to less active sperm, known as poor sperm motility, and eventually the production of fewer and abnormally shaped sperm.

Although the study looked at several factors possibly affecting the men’s fertility, it had some limitations. For starters, it didn’t find a causal link between the type of underwear a man wears and fertility; it showed only a correlation.
Additionally, all the men in the study were a part of couples having fertility issues, so it’s possible that they were the ones with the problems.
According to the research, sperm production takes just three months, so wearing looser underwear like the one in the image below and getting rid of tight jeans can reverse the problem in no time.
While heat may just be one factor in male fertility issues, a variety of others could also affect sperm production. Hormone imbalances, age, stress and lifestyle factors such as diet and drug use can also result in male infertility.
