Workplace hazards that can impact fertility and baby health

Did you know that? Some types of jobs can expose workers to chemicals or environmental conditions that have been shown to affect fertility. We explain these factors in the article below.

It may have something to do with the work that your partner is doing. You heard that right. Infertility and working in an environment that is too hot are linked. We will help you decode this connection.

Working in a warm environment will affect fertility. The testicles produce better sperm if they are just a couple of degrees below the body’s temperature. You will be surprised to learn that working in a hot environment, such as a baker’s shop will increase the temperature of your testicles and harm your sperm. So, you will make less sperm and your sperm may not be as healthy. Sitting for long periods of time may cause your testicles to overheat. The temperature of the testicles can be increased by sitting with your laptop on your lap. Certain chemicals can affect fertility. Pesticides in agriculture can have estrogenic effects on fertility. Infertility can be caused by solvents in industries such as plastics, printing, and painting. Heavy metals may also harm fertility. Lead and cadmium affect the quality of your sperm, resulting in lower sperm count. According to studies, radiation, such as X rays and Gamma Rays, can also reduce the sperm count.

Sitting for long periods of time can be harmful to fertility. You should take frequent breaks to walk for a couple of minutes. This can cool the testicles. Wear loose fitting clothes to allow for proper circulation. Change your clothes and footwear before returning home if you have been exposed to hazardous chemicals or powdered heavy metals. Whatever you do, always try to be safe. You will also need to maintain a healthy diet, and you should exercise every day. You should consult a fertility specialist who can give you advice on precautions.
