Cellphone kills fertility

Do you carry a cell phone in your trousers or jeans pockets? If you do, your cell phone could be killing your fertility. You could be inadvertently harming your fertility and sperm health and reducing your chances of fathering children. Results of long-term studies show that consistent exposure to radio-frequency electromagnetic radiation emitted by cell phones can harm male fertility.

A man’s sperms carry half the genetic material necessary to make a complete human being. A woman’s egg holds the other half. But every time a man puts a cell phone in his trousers or jeans pockets, the device could be messing with his sperm health. The average cell phone emits radio-frequency electromagnetic radiation, RF-EMR, not only when the device is active when making or receiving a phone call, but constantly even when the phone is idle.

The typical male wants to preserve his manliness and perpetuate his masculinity, particularly with regards to fertility and vitality.


While small doses of the radiation are not dangerous, over a prolonged period of time, the radiation can have deleterious effects. A small but consistent drop in sperm quality of men exposed to mobile phone radiation. While researchers find no link between mobile phone radiation and an actual drop in fertility rates, it could contribute to understanding the global and still unexplained drop in sperm count.

Sperm quality

Sperm quality is very variable naturally and is usually assessed using sperm motility – a measure of the percentage of sperm that are swimming normally; sperm viability – the percentage of sperm that are alive in a given sample; and sperm concentration, meaning the density of sperm in fluid.

Male infertility

Male infertility can be caused by factors such as hormone disorders, illness, injury to reproductive anatomy, obstruction or sexual dysfunction. These factors can temporarily or permanently affect sperm and prevent conception. Some disorders become more difficult to treat the longer they persist without infertility treatment.

Normal values

Optimal levels for healthy sperm vary, but the norm is that 15 million sperm per milliliter is considered typical for fertile couples. A fertile man must have at least 58 percent vitality, 40 percent motility and at least four percent were normal-shaped sperm cells.

Low blow

But just because a man has a low sperm count doesn’t necessarily mean he and his partner can’t conceive naturally. It only takes one sperm cell to fertilise the egg cell. And while a decrease in sperm quality can be linked to mobile phone exposure, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the men are any less fertile. Given the increasing use of wireless devices, and general declines in sperm quality seen over the last 10-20 years across the world, it is certainly an area that in urgent need of research.

Don’t throw away your cell phone

Certainly there is anxiety about fertility, but as a man who is concerned, you don’t have to ditch your cell phone. Just be smart how you use it. Don’t put your cell phone in your front pants pocket. Altering where you keep your mobile phone is a fairly easy lifestyle change to make, and certainly will do no harm.
