Excessive alcohol

Occasional drinks are fine (still not good for your health), but heavy drinking is linked with reduced sperm quality, low sperm count, and lower testosterone levels in men. We're all aware of the fact that drinking is bad for the liver, but it is equally bad for your sperm health and it can make it difficult to achieve an erection.


Smokers have lower sperm quality as compared to non-smokers, the same has been proven in various clinical studies. Smoking makes sperm less likely to fertilize an egg, the damage of smoking on sperm is heavy. Smoking affects women almost equally, it affects a women's ability to conceive, smoking women don't conceive as efficiently as non-smokers.


Yes, lifestyle choices do affect fertility in men, smoking marijuana is no exception. The same has been proven in studies. So, if you want to keep your sperm in good health and shape, stay away from such habits.

An unhealthy or unbalanced diet

There's no single reason for infertility, in addition to keeping alcohol and smoking away, you need to consume a healthy diet to maintain good sperm health.

If you don't smoke or drink, doesn't mean your sperm is always healthy, you need to take care of what you eat, and the quality of your sleep also has an impact on your sperm count and health.

Excessive caffeine

Excess of anything is not good for your health and for your sperm. Even the cups of coffee that you enjoy at work and otherwise, too much coffee is also not good for your sperm. So, if you want to enjoy your coffee without affecting the health of your baby building material, enjoy coffee in moderate amount.
