Fertility professionals and men struggling with fertility want to raise awareness and understand the challenges and causes of the issue.

A 2017 study found sperm counts worldwide dropped by 50 – 60 percent between 1973 and 2011.

Many factors could explain these trends, including changes in diet, exercise, obesity levels and alcohol intake — all of which can contribute to low sperm counts.
