What’s up with sperms in 2021? Impact of Stress, Obesity & COVID-19
Several reports about the consistently declining male fertility by environmental and reproductive epidemiologists have been worrisome for scientists as well as the men’s health community. Some even claim that such decline may jeopardize the future of the human race and warrant urgent action. June is men’s health awareness month, and we are talking to the President of the Florida Urological Society, Dr Jamin Brahmbhatt – a board certified urologic surgeon specializing in chronic testicular pain and infertility – to understand the real picture behind declining sperm counts, the effect of COVID19, obesity and various kinds of stress on sperms, its implications on care for men and the proposed solutions, if any. On the patient panel will be men’s health advocate David Stanley and fertility coach Kristen Darcy.
