Sperm Killing Laptops

A new study recently published in the journal Fertility and Sterility studied lap top usage in men and scrotal temperature. It found that even using a laptop for 10-15 minutes raised the temperature of men’s scrotums to an unsafe range for sperm production. Laptop pads placed between the man’s goods and the computer didn’t seem to have much of an effect either.

What did have an effect was when men sat with their legs wide open while having a large pad keeping the laptop steady. This allowed for better airflow. However, even after 30 minutes this got too hot.

If you’re really trying to conceive the best option may be to only use your laptop away from your lap. Put it on a desk or another piece of furniture. And of course, look into other possible reasons you may be having issues such as food, diet, exercise, and environment.

    I thought these things were well known?
    Imagine all those couples struggling to have a child, and it could all be down to the guy simply playing World Of Warcraft for six hours straight on his Laptop before bed :)

    Puttinga lap top on a desk is actually better for your neck and back as well. A writer friend of mine told me that she needs to change up how she uses her lap top, and her chiro sees so many people with similar issues now that he just starts off by asking “So how many hours a day do you use your lap top?”
