It was conducted.

As a result, it was revealed that there is a negative correlation between the use of smartphones and tablets between the evening and bedtime, and the sperm motility and concentration. This means that if you use a smartphone etc. at night, sperm motility will deteriorate and the semen will also become thin.

In addition, there is a positive correlation between sleep time and total sperm momentum, and a significant negative correlation between subjective sleepiness and total sperm momentum. Was confirmed by.

Mr Green said of the results: 'There was a correlation between the use of electronics in the evening and at bedtime and poor sperm quality. Also, the use of smartphones in the evening and in bed. Use of tablets from, and watching TV in the evening all correlate with reduced sperm concentration.'

According to Green and colleagues, this is the first study to examine the relationship between light exposure from the screens of smartphones and tablets and sperm quality.
