To produce sperm is a complex process and require testicles' function normally as well as the hypothalamus and pituitary glands — organs in your brain that produce hormones that trigger sperm production. Problems with any of these systems can affect sperm production. Also, there may be problems of abnormal sperm shape (morphology), movement (motility) or function.
Most of the reports have demonstrated a negative impact of smoking on human semen parameters, correlated with cigarettes smoked/day and smoking duration. Also there are many papers have argued that smokers demonstrate lower semen volume, sperm count, sperm motility and viability compared with non-smokers. In fact, smoking affects sperm's quality through below three aspects.
Smoking and semen parameters
Most papers have argued that smokers demonstrate lower semen volume, sperm count, sperm motility and viability compared with non-smokers. In addition, smokers showed increased seminal leukocytes, oval sperm percentage, head-piece spermatozoa defects percentage and spermatozoa with cytoplasmic droplet
Smoking and seminal abnormal constituents
Detached ciliary tufts (DCTs) were observed in the semen of men associated with a high incidence of smoking. It has been postulated that DCTs originate from the epididymal epithelium, possibly shed as part of epididymal involvement as a result of testicular pathology caused by several agents. In addition, it showed that seminal mast cells were detected at higher frequency among smokers.
Smoking and sperm ultrastructure
Changes in the number and arrangement of axonemal microtubules and axonemal abnormalities had been noted in heavy smoker compared with non-smokers. The percentage of coiled sperm had been observed to be correlated with heavy smoking. Electron microscopy revealed coiling of tail filaments within the plasma membrane.
Tobacco can have infects on reducing both sperm count (quantity) and motility (how fast those swimmers can reach an egg). Smoking is not only bad for your health, but also could affect your sperm’s quality, and finally lead to infertility. So you’d better don't smoking. But if you have found that your sperm's quality has been affected by smoking, you should get the treatment immediately to avoid infertility. Fortunately, there is an herbal medicine named Diuretic and anti-inflammatory pill
, which could improve sperm’s quality by killing bacteria, eliminating inflammation and so on. It has solved thousands of male’s sperm problems successfully.
