Wearing Loose Underwear Can Boost Sperm Quality in Men

Wearing boxer shorts could help conception

For every man in particular was available demographic data and information about their health; also, the study participants provided a sample of his sperm, and information about what kind of underwear they wear most often: boxers (loose pants-shorts), classic shorts briefs (often called "melting"), bikini (skinny trousers with a low rise at the waist), boxer briefs and more.

The study published in the journal Human Reproduction revealed that men who primarily wore boxers had a 25 percent higher sperm concentration, 17 percent higher total count, 33 percent more swimming sperm per ejaculate and 14 percent lower serum follicle stimulating hormone levels than men who did not wear boxers.

Prof Chavarro added: "Beyond providing additional evidence that underwear choices may impact fertility, our study provides evidence, for the first time, that a seemingly random lifestyle choice could have profound impacts on hormone production in men at both the level of the testis and the brain".

Men's underwear choice can affect their sperm count and quality, according to a new study by Harvard researchers.

Choice of underwear seemed to affect only the total count of the sperm and the other parameters remained unaffected.

Harvard University researchers have done the most comprehensive study to date into the effect of underwear on sperm quality and found that the tighter the garment the lower the sperm count and concentration. Vij acknowledged that many studies of male fertility use sperm counts because they are much easier to study than pregnancy rates.

In order to improve your sperm production, you can try wearing loser underwear for improving your sperm production.

"We know that spermatogenesis is very, very sensitive to temperature", Chavarro said.

Eisenberg said that if men are having trouble conceiving, they should see a doctor for an evaluation of risk factors for fertility problems. 345 men said that they liked boxer shorts, while 311 said that they wore tight underwear.

The men provided semen and blood samples and answered questions about the type of underwear they wore most frequently. "The testes of men wearing tighter fitting underwear would be exposed to higher temperatures than those wearing looser fitting ones". "Men who may benefit the most are men who've been trying a while and continue to struggle getting their partners pregnant".

"It's also important to note the study is not implying underpants are a major cause of infertility - in fact, fertility has not been measured".

And while the underwear effect is not "dramatic", Fisch said.

While the study is extensive, it has a few possible caveats.
