Environmental Exposures

Many men in Louisiana with low sperm counts are found to have some kind of exposure to heat. This can be through hot tub or sauna use, heat exposure through work, or recent high fever. If these exposures can be avoided for 2-3 months, the semen analysis often improves.

Lifestyle Factors

Certain other lifestyle factors or habits can cause low sperm count. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and weight while trying to conceive will boost your chances of success. The following are the most common dangers to a man's fertility:
