Stress In Men Causes Negative Impact On Their Sperms

Healthy lifestyle practices including diet and taking supplements are essential for male fertility. Additionally, knowing what can possibly hurt the sperms is just as vital.

The changes begin in caput epididymis, a part of the male reproductive tract. This is the place where sperm cells mature waiting for their release into the vaginal canal through the process of ejaculation.

In the caput epididymis, there is a glucocorticoid receptor, which is a stress-hormone receptor. In the study, eliminating this stress-hormone sensor prevents the transmission of stress.

During the study, Jennifer Chan found that offspring of the stressed mice dads overproduce corticosterone, a stress hormone. On the other hand, offspring of mice dads without the receptor in the epididymis have normal hormonal responses.

What About In Human Males?

Although the researchers do not have any recommendations on how to avoid this in human male, managing and keeping stress controllable is important. Today, due to the hectic and fast-moving environment, stress is very common in almost all walks of life.
