Getting Less Sleep Lowers Your Sperm Count
Sleep not only impacts your desire for sex, but also affects your fertility. According to a Danish study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, sleep deprivation lowers sperm count in men. Researchers found that, of the study’s 953 subjects, those who were sleep deprived had lower-quality semen than whose who were not.
This occurs because most hormone secretion is dictated by the circadian clock, your body’s natural cycle. If your sleep cycle is interrupted, your body won’t release as many reproductive hormones, which affects overall fertility.
Sleep also impacts overall immunity and health, both of which contribute to strong fertility in both men and women.
