Mobile Phones in pant pocket, a threat to Male Infertility.

People are today addicted to their cell phone. Mobile phones have become a staple of our society, with everyone from elementary school kids to senior citizens owning at least one. Although mobile apps and texting have made our lives easier, some question the impact they’ve had on the relationships we have with one another and the impact it has on our health. In retrospect, today’s cellular devices can be very negative at times and may cause some problems, but when used properly they may be a very wonderful thing. The use of mobile phones is so extensive that a person will not leave the phone for a while also. Females normally keep their mobiles in purse or will hold it in hand. Whereas men have the habit of keeping their phones in their pant pockets.
  2. 2. Men who keep a mobile phone in their trouser pocket could be inadvertently damaging their chances of becoming a father, according to a new study led by the University of Exeter. Previous research has suggested that Radio-frequency electromagnetic radiation (RF-EMR) emitted by the devices can have a detrimental effect on male fertility. Most of the global adult population own mobile phones, and around 14% of couples in high and middle income countries have difficulty conceiving. The research team analyzed the findings of 10 studies that examined how cell phone exposure may affect male fertility. Among men with no exposure to cell phones, 50 percent to 85 percent of their sperm had a normal ability to move towards an egg. That fell by an average of 8 percent among men exposed to cell phones. Similar effects were seen for sperm viability, which refers to the proportion of sperm that were alive, according to the study published on June 9, 2014 in the journal Environment International. The effects of cell phone exposure on sperm concentration (the number of sperm per unit of semen) were unclear, the investigators noted.
  3. 3. Most adults worldwide own mobile phones, and about 14 percent of couples in middle- and high-income nations have difficulty conceiving, the researchers said. They also noted that previous studies have suggested radio-frequency electromagnetic radiation emitted by cell phones can harm male fertility. Given the enormous scale of mobile phone use around the world, the potential role of the environmental exposure needs to be clarified," study leader Fiona Mathews, of the biosciences department at the University of Exeter in England, said in a university news release. This study strongly suggests that being exposed to radio-frequency electromagnetic radiation from carrying mobiles in trouser pockets negatively affects sperm quality. This could be particularly important for men already on the borderline of infertility, and further research is required to determine the full clinical implications for the general population. While how mobile phone damage sperm is not clear, the researchers believe that radio-frequency electromagnetic radiation from the phone disrupts the cycle of sperm production or damages the DNA. The deficiency of the sperm may be caused by the heat either directly from the phone or through the radiation that may affect the sperm. The results were consistent across in vitro studies conducted under controlled conditions and observational in vivo studies conducted on men in the general population. After studying the collected sperm of the cell phone users and non-users, the researchers found that men who regularly used cell phones had higher levels of circulating testosterone, but lower levels of luteinizing hormone, which is a key reproductive hormone that is secreted by the pituitary gland. The researchers' theory is that the electromagnetic waves that cell phones emit increase the number of testosterone-producing cells, but also lower levels of luteinizing hormone. This, in turn, may negatively impact fertility. Findings showed the more hours’ men talk on their cell phones, the lower the sperm count and the greater the percentage of abnormal sperms would be. While the study found an association between cell phone exposure and male infertility, the study was not designed to determine a cause-and-effect relationship. So
  4. 4. whether the mobile phones are kept in men's trousers or whether they are used by them, it does affect men's fertility. Whether cell phones are the culprit or not, this is an important first step to more rigorous studies that research the link between male infertility and cell phone electromagnetic waves. Male infertility refers to the inability of a male to contribute to conception with a fertile female. Infertility has traditionally been thought of as a woman's problem, but as it turns out, men don't get off that easily. About one out of every three cases of infertility is due to the man alone, and men are somehow involved in infertility about half the time. A diagnosis of male infertility can be one of the hardest challenges a man can face. For some, it can be devastating. Not being able to father a child can make a man feel like he’s failing at one of his most primal responsibilities. Advances in male infertility treatment offer real help to the males to become fathers. Male infertility is due to low sperm production, misshapen or immobile sperm, or blockages that prevent the delivery of sperm. Hormonal problems, illnesses, injuries, chronic health problems, lifestyle choices and other factors can play a role in causing male infertility. Not being able to conceive a child can be stressful and frustrating, but a number of male infertility treatments are available like surgery, medication, IUI, IVF and ICSI.
