EXCESS WEIGHT IN MEN LINKED TO INFERTILITY
Recent studies suggest obese men may have more trouble conceiving with their partner. One study found that a 20-pound weight gain can increase a man’s chance of infertility by about 10 percent. A separate study found a link between weight and sperm health; obese men had higher levels of abnormal sperm and lower semen volume. Adopting a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet and regular exercise is important to achieving a healthy weight and maintaining good reproductive health.
