Marijuana may affect fertility in young men

A recent study from the United Kingdom published by Dr. Allan Pacey, suggests the marijuana may affect fertility in young men.

The study examined semen from 1, 970 men who had provided semen as a part of a fertility assessment. The investigators found a higher rate of abnormal sperm in men who smokes marijuana. While previous studied have suggested the same, no clear cause and effect exist for marijuana use and infertility.

For men who are concerned about the use of marijuana and infertility, a semen analysis can be obtained to measure various perimeters of their semen including count, motility, and sperm shape. As with all lifestyle recommendations, moderation is the best course of action.
