Riding Motorcycles Can Affect Male Fertility
« on: February 13, 2008, 10:51:42 AM »
Infertility is a health problem that is increasing in Nigeria. Until a few years ago, it was believed that infertility was a female problem. Recent findings have however shown that men and women are equally responsible for it.

In an interview with our correspondent after a seminar organised last Friday in Lagos by Forever Living Products (Nigeria) Limited, a consultant neurologist and homoeopath, Dr Abayomi Aiyesimoju, urged men not to heap the blame on their wives. He called for proper diagnosis to solve the problem.

Aiyesimoju, formerly of the University College Hospital, Ibadan, explained the causes of infertility in men and women. Speaking on male infertility, he cautioned men against a lifestyle or dressing that could affect their testicles.

Explaining further, he said because testicles play an important role in the production of sperm, anything that affect it will reduce fertility.

He has a piece of advice for people that are fond of wearing tight pants and ridding motorcycles. According to him, riding motorcycles or wearing tight pants frequently is not good for the testicles. He said both could heat up the testicles and affect the production of sperm.

Aiyesimoju said, ?The kind of pants you wear, the amount of heat you allow around your private parts can affect your testicles. You should avoid hot bath and ridding motorcycles every time.

?The thing that testicles do not like really is heat. Even in places where you have winter and summer, it is known that a man is likely to be more fertile in winter than other time because of the cooler environment. The increase in temperature can affect sperm production. There is congestion when there is heat. It can also affect the free flow of sperm.?

Explaining male infertility further, he said, ?Some sperms have abnormal shapes. They do not move as they should. Some men even produce anti-bodies against their own sperms. Some men may have paths through which sperm may pass blocked.?

Aiyesimoju?s advice is borne out of the fact that sitting on a motorcycle for a long time can generate heat that can affect the testicles. The fact that there may be no space for free movement of testicles may generate heat, which is not good for sperm production.

The consultant explained that female infertility could be caused by inability to ovulate. Apart from the inability to ovulate, he said some women?s eggs were not viable.

?They also have blockage of tubes by infections or by surgeries. There is also stress and psychological factors,? Aiyesimoju added.

He also cautioned Nigerians against the use of plastics. The consultant said, ?Plastics are known to contain substances that have hormone-like effects. If you consume anything in the plastic, it can affect your hormonal system and the reproductive function has to do with the right state and functions of the hormones.?

According to Aiyesimoju, proper nutrition can enhance fertility. He added that women should watch their weight. He said obesity could hinder fertility, adding that underweight women can also have fertility problem.

Aiyesimoju noted that government had a great role to play in reducing infertility and other health problems.

?When we burn rubbish, we release loads and loads of pollutants into the environment. That will have an effect not only on fertility, but also on our health in general. Government should put in place infrastructure that will ensure proper disposal of refuse,? he advised.
