Getting a good night’s rest is important for your general health and well being. Noise can often interrupt your sleep and cause you to feel fatigued and even grumpy the next day. But did you know that noises during the night could be lowering your sperm count and affecting your fertility?
Affects more than your mood
Studies have shown that nighttime noise can have a negative effect on your sperm count even if it doesn’t interfere with your sleep. Living near a source of constant noise, even if you have learned to tune it out, can reduce your sperm count and effectiveness.
Noise also has a negative impact on your health in other ways. Mental illnesses, heart disease, and even strokes can be attributed to exposure to excessive noise. It isn’t just nighttime noise either, a noisy workplace can also affect your health. Noise has also been shown to have a negative impact on women’s fertility as well.
What is noise?
These studies determined that prolonged exposure to noise above 55 decibels is what you should be concerned about. Ambient noise in a rural area is about 40 decibels, while the noise level of an average conversation hits about 50 decibels. This means that just leaving the television on all night with the volume at conversation level can actually lower your sperm count.
What to do for sperm count
Quieting your environment is not only beneficial to your fertility, but your overall well being too. Turn off the television at night (or turn it down), and blocking outside noises with thick drapes on the windows can help too. Wear ear plugs of muffs if you have too. Whatever it takes to get a quiet night’s rest.
