Male infertility is a problem that has become increasingly common in Pakistan and is associated with lots of social pressure. According to a study, 87% of MEN with sexual issues risk their lives in hands of hakeems and fake doctors. Men tend to remain silent about this problem which aggravates the issue even more.

It is one of the most rising problems in today’s society and there is no proper awareness about this issue. It has been found that 90% of the male infertility cases are curable if treated properly. People should adopt a lifestyle that keeps them away from developing this problem. Also, they should have authentic knowledge regarding how to deal with it.

Here are few are few precautions that men can take to decrease the possibility of infertility


Excessive body weight or obesity can lead you to infertility. This is probably due to the effect of fat on a number of hormones as well as peptides, that happens with the distortion in the balance of androgens/estrogens. It’s been seen that when BMI exceeds 25-30 kg/m2, significant alterations are seen both in the morphology of sperm cells and in the genetic material (DNA) they carry with them.

Smoking & Addictive Substances

Tobacco and combusted chemicals in tobacco products tend to have a negative effect on male infertility. Smoking and its inhaled addictive substances can induce the ‘oxidative stress’ and also impair the reproductive sperm capacity. On the other hand, giving up smoking and addictive substances reverses the consequences.

Supplement Substances:

Supplements often contain substances that can be harmful for male fertility. Supplements should be taken only after the physician’s recommendation. You can also book an appointment with the best urologist in Karachi or any other city of Pakistan via marham.pk.

Mobile / Cell Phone Radiations:

Long use of mobile/cell phone can significantly affect male fertility. Even exposure to any type of intense and prolonged radiation may harm the sperm production. The exposure to radiations should be kept limited as much as possible.

There are antioxidant properties in foods such as in Vitamin A (e.g. cheese), Vitamin C (e.g. citrus fruit), Vitamin E (e.g. sunflower seeds), ω-3 fats (e.g. fish), Zinc (shellfish) and folic acid.
