Men who use laptops by keeping them on their thighs can have a bad effect on their fertility. Studies show that the heat and electromagnetic fields (EMF) emitted from laptops can badly affect the male reproductive organs.

Come, let's know about them in detail -

Laptop heat

Heat is generated while running the laptop. This can cause damage to the body in many ways. The heat emanating from the laptop can affect male fertility when used on the lap. Researchers say that using a laptop on the lap can increase the temperature of the testicles by about 5 degrees Fahrenheit. This condition can cause male infertility.

It has also been proved in research that when the temperature of the testicles increases by an average of 1 to 2 degrees Fahrenheit in a day, it can cause a drop in the sperm count by about 40 percent. Sperms are produced in the testicles. When the testicles get overheated, more sperm cannot be produced. Along with this, when the temperature of the testicles increases, the quality of sperm also decreases, due to which the man is not able to conceive.
