Bad news for Men who smoke weed – Here is how it affects your spe_rm

Marijuana use might affect the size and shape of a young man’s spe_rm, possibly impairing his fertility, a new study claims.

“Our data suggests that cannabis users might be advised to stop using the drug if they are planning to try and start a family,” study author Dr Allan Pacey, a senior lecturer at the University of Sheffield in England, said in a university news release.

“Our knowledge of factors that influence spe_rm size and shape is very limited, yet faced with a diagnosis of poor spe_rm [size and shape], many men are concerned to try and identify any factors in their lifestyle that could be causing this,” said Pacey.

The research included nearly 2 000 men who visited one of 14 fertility clinics and answered questions about their medical history and their lifestyle.

Of that group of men, 318 had spe_rm that was considered “abnormal”. Less than 4% of their spe_rm was the correct size and shape, the researchers said. The information collected on these men was compared to data from the remaining 1 652 men who had sperm that was considered “normal”.

Abnormal sperm samples

The researchers examined how certain lifestyle choices affected the size and shape of the men’s spe_rm and found “very few identifiable risks”, Pacey said.

Although cigarettes and alcohol had little effect, the study revealed that spe_rm size and shape was negatively affected if the men were younger than age 30 and had smoked marijuana within three months.

Spe_rm samples produced during the summer were also nearly twice as likely to be considered “abnormal”, the study showed.

The study authors noted that spe_rm size and shape may be linked to other factors that were not measured, such as the quality of a man’s DNA.

Previous research has suggested spe_rm need to be of good size and shape to work their way through a woman’s body after s.e.x and fertilise an egg.

Men exposed to paint str1ppers and lead are also at risk of having spe_rm with poor shape and size, Nicola Cherry, an epidemiologist and professor formerly of the University of Manchester in England, said in the news release.
