Sperm may like boxers better than briefs

Sperm may like boxers better than briefs

And it turns out that in the battle of the drawers, the best one won -shorts.

The researchers also analyzed blood samples from about 300 of the participants and found that the men who wore boxers had 14% lower levels of a hormone called FSH - which is known to play a role in male fertility - compared with men who wore tighter underwear. But this isn't a new finding.

Boxers have always been thought to be better for men's fertility.

The findings suggested that tight underwear may impair sperm production, the researchers wrote in the study, published today (Aug. 8) in the journal Human Reproduction. Here are 8 foods that increase fertility.

For this study, researchers collected information and semen samples from 656 men who were part of couples that were seeking treatment at a fertility center. The men ranged in age from 18 to 56, but their average age was in the mid-30s.

'We aren't told what "frequently" means in terms of their underwear use - how many hours a day, how many days a week - but actually it doesn't really matter since none of the underwear types being investigated caused a problem'.

Boxer-wearing men had a 25% higher sperm concentration than those who reported not wearing boxers. She and her colleagues note that numerous investigations have tried to directly connect temperature differences from types of underwear to reproductive health, but the results have been inconsistent. The simultaneous presence of lower sperm counts and higher FSH among men wearing tight-fitting underwear suggests the presence of a compensatory mechanism. It adds to evidence that temperature is vital to sperm production. Although, the hypothesis needs confirmation by further research.

The researchers looked at several factors that affect sperm quality beyond total count, such as motility (their ability to swim), morphology (proportion of normal-looking sperm) and DNA damage to sperm.

For every man in particular was available demographic data and information about their health; also, the study participants provided a sample of his sperm, and information about what kind of underwear they wear most often: boxers (loose pants-shorts), classic shorts briefs (often called "melting"), bikini (skinny trousers with a low rise at the waist), boxer briefs and more. Their sperm is also of a lower quality. "Even relatively small changes in temperature by choosing a type of underwear that would bring the scrotum closer to the abdomen could, in theory, have an effect on spermatogenesis".

Men fond of wearing tight underwear who are now trying to conceive a child might want to think again following a new study. They also answered a questionnaire about their underwear.
