Men who are actively involved in sports often use anabolic steroids. One of the side effects of these drugs is a decrease in the size of the testicles and, as a result, male infertility. Also, "anabolic steroids" disrupt the natural hormonal level of men.
2. Malnutrition and anemia
Lack of beneficial nutrients negatively affects male reproductive health.
3. Tight clothing
Wearing trendy but tight-fitting underpants reduces sperm production due to the excess heat that such underwear generates in the genital area.
4. Excessive physical activity

7. Chronic alcohol abuse
This bad habit affects male fertility even more than smoking.
8. Deficiency of vitamins
Lack of vitamin C and zinc in a man's diet can cause infertility.
