The Doctors welcome urologist Dr. Aaron Spitz to discuss whether keeping your cell phone in your front pocket can affect your fertility.
According to research, keeping your cell phone near your genitals might affect a man's sperm. Dr. Spitz explains that it has been proven that radiation which may be emanating from your phone has been shown to have an impact on sperm, sperm count, and sperm movement. While there can be an impact, he notes that birth rates are not necessarily lower.
He suggests for men who have a known sperm count issue to eliminate this as a possible contributing factor and keep the phone out of your front pocket.
"If you have normal sperm counts, it is probably not going to be impacting your ability have a child," he tells The Doctors.
There are types of underwear that contain silver fibers, which claim to block the radiation of phones and other devices, but he feels these types of underwear are not 100 percent effective.
Dr. Spitz recommends keeping the phone on your desk and not in your pocket if possible.
