Stress and depression are medically known to reduce male sperm count and male fertility as well as female fertility. But there are other things that can cause it.

Depression and anxiety can cause loss of appetite. And it could be your loss of appetite which is affecting your sperm count too, as your body obviously needs to feed itself in order to produce it.

Medication is available for depression and anxiety as is counselling.
