Male infertility is any health issue in a man that lowers the chances of his female partner getting pregnant.
There are many causes for infertility in men and women. In over a third of infertility cases, the problem is with the man. This is most often due to problems with his sperm production or with sperm delivery.
Some men indulge in hot water baths every morning and this can lead to abnormal sperm production sequence.
Hot shower undoubtedly is healthy, helps kick stress away when taken after a long and very stressful day, also helps keep the skin fresh and clean by making sure the sweat pores are cleared thoroughly but then, for a man who still has plans of bringing children into the world, it shouldn’t be a routine.

The male reproductive organ consists of scrotal sac which harbours the testes responsible for sperm production and storage, as well as the other urogenital organ that serves for its introduction.
The scrotal sac is located outside of the body for a reason. The reason for this is so the temperature of the body doesn’t affect the sperm production mechanism negatively as it requires a temperature relatively lower than that of the body.
Constant introduction of hot water to the body in the form of hot shower would indirectly impact the temperature of the testes leading to conditions that affect the normal production of sperm.
The outcome of this could be weak or low sperm count among several other conditions that would lead to infertility.
