Asalamualaikum r nI was married 1 year, but still not pregnant doctor, we rarely see each other usually a week only 2 times r nBecause I’m used to working nights so my husband never sleeps late. Even though at home. R n Does it affect sperm quality and fertility ??
Hello Erni, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First I want to confirm in advance, what you mean is that your husband never sleeps at night is your husband does not sleep at night and also does not sleep during the day (up to 7-9 hours in the day) or you mean not to sleep at night day but sleep enough in the morning and afternoon?
If your husband experiences sleep deprivation (daily sleep less than 7-9 hours), then this condition can indeed cause various health problems, including fertility problems. Lack of sleep can affect the production of testosterone, also called male hormones, which also have a role in sperm production. Other health problems that can occur include:
mood disorders memory disorders and the concentration of the immune system disorders increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes, vascular disorders, and obesity etc. If indeed your husband always sleeps less every day, it helps you advise your husband to improve his sleep patterns.
However, regarding you and your husband who do not have children after 1 year of trying, you and your husband should also undergo a fertility check. Your husband can do a sperm check, and you can see a gynecologist for further examination for problems in your reproductive organs or other hormonal disorders.
To increase the chances of you and your husband having children, here are some things you and your husband can do:
Try to have sex more often that is every 2-3 days. If intercourse is often not possible, you can try to have sex more often in your fertile period. Avoid behaviors that can reduce fertility such as smoking, drinking alcohol, using illegal drugs Reduce stress Sleep and adequate rest Eating high nutritious foods, especially those that contain lots of antioxidants. For you, take folic acid while planning this pregnancy. Here are the articles that you can read about fertility checks
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
