Sperm Quality If Consumption Of Mercury Products?
my husband uses cosmetic products with mercury, does it affect sperm quality? I’m 37 weeks pregnant and need to have sex, I’m afraid to get in touch because I’m afraid that the mercury is in the sperm cell too, please answer yes, thank you …
The use of cosmetic products that contain mercury should be avoided, because the use of mercury in skin care products should be under supervision by a dermatologist to minimize the side effects that may arise. That is why cosmetics products that are sold but that contain mercury are prohibited from circulating because they have the potential to cause harmful effects on health such as: Headaches, sleep disorders (insomnia), decreased memory, emotional changes, tremors, neurological disorders resulting in decreased listening ability, seeing , speech and senses, and kidney failure. In addition, exposure to large amounts of mercury in a long time can trigger cancer
From several studies that have been done on animals, mercury exposure can affect the quality (in terms of fertility) of the sperm of experimental animals, causing sperm movement and sperm shape to be abnormal which has an impact on fertility disorders. On the other hand there are other researchers who argue that there is no relationship between sperm quality (in fertility) with mercury exposure. But in general, mercury is rarely carried in sperm
Mothers are expected to routinely control routinely to the obstetrician or midwife given that the gestational age is nearing the time of delivery, and do not forget to motivate your husband to consult with a dermatologist to consider changing the type of cosmetics he uses (unless it is currently in special treatment that requires mercury therapy under the supervision of a dermatologist)
Thus the information that can be conveyed
