When it comes to infertility in marriage,its not about women alone because its a two way issue. Both must be in good health to be able to conceive though often times especially in Africa the blame of childlessness is shifted to the woman alone.

Showering in hot tubs too can cause over heating so try avoid it

2. LAPTOP USAGE: Research has made it known that there is a direct correlation between laptop use and increased scrotum temperature—up to 35˚ in certain positions.

To avoid this make use of a desk or table to place and operate your laptop

3. TIGHT PANTS: Same way wearing overly tight pants can be unsafe for women as it will not allow the v*gina to breathe well is how it is for men. When a man wears a tight pants for a long time it affects the temperate of the testes and its environment. Boxers is more preferred than a tight pants to allow it have a good normal temperature.
