To produce testosterone and sperm, the testes need their individual environment, their individual temperature conditions. The testicles are in the loosely hanging scrotum, because they must be freely suspended and swayed. It has been proven that in order to keep the testicles in optimal conditions, it is necessary to maintain a certain temperature, which should be about 3.3 ° C below your body temperature. This is a big difference.

The effects of overheating of the testicles manifest in impaired sperm and testosterone production (see "The main symptoms of low testosterone" ). In fact, the temperature of the jacuzzi causes the testicles to send a small mini-grenade, called heat shock protein. It’s as if to say: “Sorry, but testosterone and sperm do not have the proper quality. We will destroy them or partially hold them. ”

When a couple complains of infertility and it turns out that the man has a small number of sperm, cooling the testicles is one of the first recommendations.

Currently, the problems of men constitute the majority of the difficulties of childbirth. However, we do everything not to comply with the temperature request of the testicles. The testicles try to forgive us and adapt, but they cannot. You should take better care of them, as much as possible (see “Why and how to perform a massage of the testicles” ). This is especially true for men at risk:

  • drivers, truckers;
  • office workers whose profession involves being seated;
  • professions that involve constant contact with high temperatures (furnace workers, casters);
  • men who prefer narrow pants, tight underwear made of synthetic materials that do not allow air.

Avoid heated seats in the car. Cars of higher class are equipped with seat heaters, which in some cases are automatically activated in cold weather. In winter, many turn on these heaters and leave them turned on for many months. We are warming up with our testicles. If you live in a hot climate, then the car seats are heated by the sun.

Driving a car implies a sitting position of the driver with legs close to each other, which in itself causes an increase in the temperature of the scrotum area, even without using a heated seat. The situation is aggravated by tight pants and underwear made of synthetic materials, nylon or wool. Thus, drivers of urban transport, taxi, truckers and all men, whose profession involves long-term driving, are at risk of overheating of the testicles.

In addition, as far as possible avoid:

  • jacuzzi and hot tubs;
  • heated water beds;
  • use an electric blanket.

Reduce water temperature by taking a shower. If you are taking a mobile shower, do not send hot water directly to the genital area for a long time. After a shower, try not to wear thick clothes immediately, walk in loose clothing as long as possible.

Avoid tight clothing such as tight jeans or nylon or wool underwear. Wear loose cotton boxers. Wear loose pants, preferably with front folds.

Children's specialists note that boys who have been wearing disposable diapers made of synthetic materials for many years may experience disruption of testosterone and sperm. Synthetic materials do not allow heat. Old-fashioned cotton diapers are recommended. Violation of the thermal regime of the testicles in adolescence may adversely affect the development of secondary sexual characteristics due to a decrease in testosterone synthesis and its effects.

The scrotum is "more comfortable" to be naked. It is possible that it is best for her to be in limbo. But, assuming that walking naked is unacceptable in your home, you could wear loose clothing.

Give the testicles some freedom. The main point here is that you should avoid wearing tight pants, pajamas, shorts, or tight tights. The testicles themselves are covered with only a thin layer of skin, and it is not very useful for them if you put on additional layers.

The testicles and scrotum constantly assess the climate. According to the results of the assessment, the brain gives the testes a command every 15 minutes how much testosterone needs to be developed.

By the way, this is why most men from eastern countries have no problems with sperm and childbirth - they go all the time in free clothes. In fact, the amount of sperm produced by men has increased in the third world countries, whereas in the western world it has decreased by 50% in the last 40 years.

Scottish men were conservative about clothes, which contributed to the effect of testosterone. When Mel Gibson shouted “Freedom!” In the movie “Braveheart”, he may have spoken more truth than he knew. He may also have praised plaid skirts, which give the testes freedom.

Do not work on a laptop, keeping it on your lap. Do not watch DVD-movies, do not play computer games and do not work with texts on the computer, holding the laptop on your lap.

Wash or rub the testicles with moderately cool water 2-3 times a day. Men look at us like mad people when we recommend it. But during the day, many men sit for a long time. They trap the groin of heat. This area starts to sweat, so your body says the temperature is too high. This is the reason why testosterone levels decline in the evening.

When the testicles sweat, the body will know about it, even if you are not. So help them a little. At home or in the toilet cubicle, wipe your testicles with pleasant, cool water, allowing them to enjoy the coolness for 15 seconds.

Many men (although not all) report that by washing their testicles with cool water 10-15 minutes before having sex, they improve their abilities. Try it! Do not use ice cubes. Impatient customers, following the advice, think: "If cool water is good, the cold weather should be even better." Wrong!

Sit right - in terms of benefits to the genitals

Notice how you sit now. If the legs are fairly close to each other, they cause the scrotum to sweat, “trap” high temperature, block the normal flow of blood into the scrotum, inhibit nerve impulses and prevent this area from breathing. Sitting with legs together increases the temperature of the scrotum by almost 2.5 ° C.

For 6 out of 10 men, this is all that needs to be done. No exercise at all! We only change one position to another!

Make a "V-check". When you sit, your legs should resemble the letter V. When you know that you will sit somewhere for more than 15 minutes, consciously try to sit with your legs apart to make a wider letter V.

With sufficient distance, some “breathing” space is formed for your testicles on both sides of the scrotum. Here is what you need. This position helps to avoid “trapping” high temperature, humidity, vascular compression and nerve endings. Do not become obsessed with this, it is sometimes enough to check if the position of your legs does not interfere with free blood flow in the scrotum area, and if this is the cause of the temperature increase in this area.

    For many, it may be funny, but here is written absolutely normal and true information. My wife and I could not conceive our first baby for a long time. And the whole problem was precisely because of my low sperm count. And who would have thought that my sit-in work (worked earlier in the office) could lead to such consequences? Having made a spermogram, my andrologist, the first thing I said was to constantly monitor the temperature of my testicles. I, too, at first was strange to hear. But then the doctor explained everything to me and I understood the importance of this procedure. Of course, this treatment is not over. There were other prescriptions, but now I am talking about this importance. And if there are any problems in the male part - do not hesitate to go to the doctors. They will not advise the bad. Better yet, go to competent doctors who value their reputation. Then there should definitely be no doubt about the prescribed treatment (no matter how strange it was).
