Wi-Fi and Male Infertility

The June issue of Women’s Health Magazine had a small blurb on recent findings with male fertility and wi-fi findings. There was a study completed in Fertility and Sterility that took semen samples and studied the effects that Wi-Fi had on them from a laptop. The results showed that after a certain amount of time (I believe four hours), the approximately a quarter of the sample were no longer active! Does your partner place his laptop on his lap often while doing work at home? Have him place it on the coffee table or separate it from his lap with a pillow. Previous studies have shown that heat from laptops can also damage semen quality, so having a laptop cooling fan attached to his laptop can also help!
