Take a Cold Shower for Your Health


Sperm Count

Heat can affect your sperm count.

From Mayo Clinic:

To maximize the quality and quantity of your sperm, avoid hot tubs and baths. Spending more than 30 minutes in water 102 F (40 C) or above may lower your sperm count. Saunas and steam rooms may have a similar effect.
