When a couple can't get pregnant, more often than not people assume it's a female issue. However, there are plenty of habits your guy might have, that could be affecting fertility on his side. Following are some likely culprits. He likes super tighty whities: What you've heard is true, too tight undies on your fellow can hamper his fertility. The problem is that tight undies result in hot testicles which affect sperm. Another problem could be if he has a sit down all day job because sitting results in more direct heat located in his testicle area than moving about does. He smokes: If your guy smokes cigarettes, a pipe, or marijuana he's damaging his sperm. Research notes that as soon as a guy quits his sperm production goes back to normal and healthy within three months. He drinks - a lot: One or two drinks a day is no big deal, but more than that, even say one binge a week can cause sperm issues. He's got other unaddressed sexual problems: Males with issues like erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation should deal with that before attempting to have a baby. Sometimes when the fertility problem is on the male side this is why. He loves his internet time and other hot stuff: Interestingly, a newer study reported that the heat of a laptop (on your guy's lap) can kill sperm. So can hot items like a hottub, hot kitchen (think chef), or working all day with hot sources like welding.

He's not acting cool: If your fellow is angry, upset, depressed, and stressed, he could have less viable sperm. New research notes that the more in check his feelings, and the more relaxed he is, the better his baby making skills.
