Ditching tight pants 'improves sperm count'

Wearing boxer shorts could help conception

Wearing boxer shorts could help conception

The study found men who wear boxer shorts have higher sperm concentrations than men who wear tighter fitting underwear including very skimpy briefs dubbed a bikini.

They sought to test the theory that briefs, being more constricting, raise scrotal temperature and have a negative effect on fertility.

If you wear boxer shorts, your sperm will pack more of a punch.

The researchers looked at several factors that affect sperm quality beyond total count, such as motility (their ability to swim), morphology (proportion of normal-looking sperm) and DNA damage to sperm.

Chavarro told New Scientist that, although men who wear tight underwear have a lower sperm count, they generally still have sperm concentrations that fit in the average range.

Sperm production is known to be sensitive to temperatures above 34C (92F), which is why the testicles hang down away from the body.

We know what you're thinking. "I think we still have a lot to learn about men's contribution to fertility".

The researchers explained in Human Reproduction how they quizzed men in couples who were seeking fertility treatment about their favourite underwear choices. Each provided semen and blood samples and they were asked about the style of underwear they wore most frequently in the preceding three months.

At the same time, men who prefer the "boxers" also had a low level of concentration of follicle stimulating hormone needed to regulate sperm production.

But before you panic about your choice of trousers for the past year, it's worth noting that while sperm counts were higher in those that wore boxers, the research didn't find evidence that wearing other styles of underwear would drastically drop your sperm's quality or count.

Sperms gets damaged by a tight fitting underwear. When men have trouble conceiving, "we hope that there are other ways that we can intervene that have a little more significant science and data to back them up", she said.

"If you're just walking along in an air conditioned room, it's probably not going to make much difference between boxers and briefs", said Fisch, who was not involved in the study.

Oi, you, in the tight trousers. Hence despite having poorer quality of sperms, these men had high levels of FSH. Underwear choice had no effect on these other markers. "If you're trying to have a baby you want to be in the best shape of your life and have less adverse things happening".

Guys with tighter-fitting pants also had higher levels of a hormone that encourages sperm production - likely to compensate for all the seed that gets fried in their high-temperature unmentionables, researchers said.
