Dr Crawford said she'd never allow her partner to smoke cigarettes, use marijuana or sit with a laptop on his lap because it could negatively impact his ability to have children

Dr Crawford said she’d never allow her partner to smoke cigarettes, use marijuana or sit with a laptop on his lap because it could negatively impact his ability to have children

First, Dr Crawford said she’d never allow her partner to smoke cigarettes because it’s ‘absolutely terrible’ for sperm, or smoke marijuana because it ‘decreases the production of sperm’ and impacts the shape.

Interestingly she also discourages her partner to place laptops on his lap. 

‘The heat actually increases the temperature of the testes – they’re outside the body for a reason – and that can cause an increase in abnormally shaped sperm,’ Dr Crawford said.

Few may realise processed meats could lower sperm quality, which is why Dr Crawford would never have her partner consume this type of food.

‘Processed meats have a lot of chemicals in them and they’re absolutely really bad for the sperm,’ she said in the clip.

To preserve the quality of sperm, Dr Crawford also wouldn’t have her partner use testosterone or anabolic steroids.

‘Testosterone is essentially birth control pills for men, or birth control shots for men, and so many people will put somebody on testosterone to help their ‘fatigue’ or ‘low T’ but it kills your sperm,’ she said.

‘You’ll have no sperm for months or even years after to use.’

While Dr Crawford didn’t mention drinking alcohol, heavy drinking can reduce sperm production by lowering testosterone.

The video was liked more than 212,000 times and was well received by other Instagram users. 

‘Didn’t know the testosterone part,’ one person commented, another wrote: ‘Good to know!’ 

But another woman said her husband smokes and they had ‘no trouble’ falling pregnant. 

It’s best to speak to your fertility doctor or GP when discussing fertility concerns.
