Does coffee reduce your sperm count?
Coffee can reduce sperm count but only very slightly.
Old age can cause lower sperm count. Physical injury can cause lower sperm count. Ingesting harmful substances (some drugs and chemicals) can cause lower sperm count. Interestingly - too much heat in the groin area can lower sperm count too - which is one reason doctors may recommend a man switch from briefs to boxers when having trouble with low sperm count. The briefs tend to keep the scrotum warmer and may reduce sperm production.
* Good judgement * A low sperm count * poor sperm quality, eg: low motility, and or sperm abnormalities * substance abuse can temporairly reduce sperm count and motility * smoking reduces sperm count and motility * certain lubricants are injurious to sperm And many other things such as varicocele and prostatitis and sexually transmitted disease and hormone disfunction.

Depending on the individual. Steroids have generally shown to reduce the sperm count and quality of most males. Some studies show some anabolic steroids to reduce the chances of pregnancy more than the birth control pill. I am not sure about other drugs. However, I would not be suprised if the majority of drugs affect the sperm count to some degree.
Yes, tanning beds can reduce sperm count. Sperm is stored in the testes in the scrotum for a reason. The sperm needs to be held in the scrotum because sperm cannot survive the regular body temperature and needs to be kept at a lower temperature (in the scrotum). When men tan, the temperature of the sperm increases, killing them.
Alcohol by itself can only very mildly cause a reduction in sperm count. But a person who drinks every day is causing damage to their liver. When the liver is damaged, it doesn't process hormones correctly and an increase in estrogen can occur. This leads to gynecomastia (man boobs), and can reduce sperm count. But if the liver damage has progressed to this point, the person has bigger health concerns than a low sperm count.
The results vary. If you are being treated for testicular cancer, you will likely also be treated with hormones that will reduce the sex drive to a point where you won't care about sperm count. Once your treatment is over, it is quite possible that your sperm count will rise again, although obviously not to the previous level. If you are concerned about fathering children, artificial insemination with your own sperm is an option in…
While there is clinical evidence that some anabolic steroids slightly reduce sperm count, it is by no means a form of birth control. Sperm count almost always goes up after the body's natural testosterone levels have recovered. There is not much evidence suggesting sperm count will be permanently reduced after cessation of an anabolic steroid cycle. I think as long as you use post-cycle therapy drugs like nolvadex, your sperm count will return to a…
It depends on which antibiotic he is taking and how long he has taken it. Sperm takes up to 110 days to be replaced, therefore drugs that cause problems in production may have no effect on sperm already being stored. Your safest bet is to continue to use your regular birth control. The tetracycline family is not known to change sperm production, sulfasalazine has been shown to decrease male fertility by reducing a man's sperm…
