Relationship between physical occupational exposures and health on semen quality: data from the Longitudinal Investigation of Fertility and the Enviro
Conclusion(s): A negative relationship among occupational exertion, hypertension, and the number of medications with semen quality was identified. As these are potentially modifiable factors, further research should determine whether treatment or cessation may improve male fecundity.

Comment: This article has good and poor news for oligospermic males and their work place environment.
Submission: This study looked at work exposure activities in relation to semen quality. Any male with a poor sperm count will naturally ask what they can do about it. From this paper, advisers can suggest that shift work, night work, vibration, noise, heat, and prolonged sitting were not associated with deceased semen quality. The authors did notice a small decrease in morphology with blood pressure and as a marker of general health, the number of medications taken. One may then argue that if a male partner has high blood pressure and asthenospermia, one possible treatment option is to address the high blood pressure - although this is a clinic decision. One may also argue that as part of a general workup for IVF, weight (BMI) and blood pressure should be routine measurements. The good news is that if hypertension is a negative indicator for semen quality, then addressing this may restore any potential decrease in male based infertility. Even moving from ICSI because of asthenspermia back to IVF could be seen as a positive outcome. at the very least, adding `DO you suffer from Hypertension` on the semen sample form may not be a bad idea.
