Lagos   –   Dr Sharon Osaide, a Fertility Physician, has said that men that took 60 per cent alcohol within 48 hours were likely to develop abnormal quality of sperm cell.

Osaide, who is also a gynecologist with Rose Du Rouge International Initiative and a Volunteer Consultant, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Lagos.

She said, “Two glasses of alcohol have no effect on men`s sperm cell, but men that take up to 60 per cent alcohol in 48 hours will develop teratozospermia (abnormal sperm cell).

“Even though they may have normal sperm counts, they will have abnormal quality of sperm.

“For every time there is an intercourse a man ejaculates, the ejaculate is the semen but what is important is the sperm cells contained in the sperm.

“ Some men have made it a habit to always visit bars every day to take two bottles or more bottles of alcohol which could lead to abnormal sperm cell.’’

The gynecologist urged men to live healthy lifestyles by eating healthy food and engage in regular exercises to avoid being obese.

“Obesity in men can lead to infertility, when a man is obese, he will produce the estrogen hormone rather than the testosterone hormone.

“The estrogen hormone is the female hormone and after some time the estrogen will inhibit their production and a lot of them will not produce sperm cell anymore.’’
