Daily sex can boost men’s sperm countNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:18 am ICT by admin
The team said that this practice could instead be leading to poorer quality sperm.
As a part of their study, the Australian scientists analysed 42 men whose sperm had been found to be an abnormal shape when examined under the microscope.
The volunteers were asked to ejaculate daily for seven days.
They were also asked to ejaculate after three days’ abstinence.
When the two samples were compared, the researchers noted that all but five of the men had less sperm damage in their daily samples compared with the post-abstention sample.
The study, according to Dr Allan Pacey, the secretary of the British Fertility Society, showed that when men are put on a daily ejaculation regime, it reduces the figure for DNA damage.
“This research shows that when you put people on a daily ejaculation regime, it reduces the figure for DNA damage,” the BBC quoted him, as saying.
“If you can go from 30% to 20% that is quite a big shift and that should have some implications for fertility.
“There are men out there who think, or whose partners think, that limiting ejaculation will make them more fertile.”
The study was presented at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine conference. (ANI)
