The man could experience it. As explained Prof Dr H Oentoeng Soeradi, biologists as well as a professor at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Indonesia (Faculty of medicine), many factors that cause disruption of the process of sperm formation to cause infertility in men. What are they?
One of them is in the habit of using very tight pants. According Oentoeng, the use of underwear too tight cause the temperature around the testes increases. And an increase in temperature that would bind the sperm-forming hormone. Some of certain hormones, such as testosterone namely, FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) and LH (luteinizing hormone) plays a major role in the formation of sperm. "When these hormones needs unmet, sperm can not be formed in the amount and condition of health."
Certain diseases also should be wary. For example, infection of the salivary glands (mumps). This disease causes an increase in body temperature. And high body temperature can interfere with the process of formation of sperm in the testes. Not only that. Men who like to soak in hot water, you should also start thinking to stop this habit. Why so? Therefore, the water temperature is too hot and exceeds body temperature can weaken the ability of the testes to produce sperm.
So even with the man whose day-to-day working near the stove or furnace. Oentoeng words, workers are prone to problems such as infertility. "Basically, the testes are not resistant to heat than the body temperature. Testis When exposed to heat that exceeds body temperature, he will not be able to function to produce good sperm," said Coordinator of Basic Medical Science Department Faculty of Medicine's Nature.
Furthermore, he explains, the process of testicular protection from excessive heat has actually occurred naturally since the fetus is in the mother's womb. While still in embryo, the testes are in the abdominal cavity. Before birth, ie during fetal development, the testicles will descend into the scrotum (testicle sac) that has a temperature below body temperature. Just so you know, the temperature in the scrotum is approximately 33-34 degrees Celsius. Low temperature is important for fetal testis protect it from overheating.
With temperatures below body temperature, testis can function optimally. Arrangements made by the scrotal temperature through sweat glands and smooth muscle capable of thickening and thinning in accordance with ambient temperature. Conversely, if the fetal testes do not descend into the scrotum, the testicles will experience excessive heat when the baby is born. As a result, at times it was not able to produce sperm that can function properly.
