Nature has chosen a way to maintain the temperature of your testicles on 0,5 C lower than body temperature by placing them outside the body. But if your internal temperature rises too high, or heat the testes themselves, then this may affect the formation of sperm. Dr. Baum advises to beware excessive physical exertion, fever, hot baths and tight underwear, if you want to father a child.
