Guys, pls stop wearing tight #pants!

Tight underwears can keep your testicles closer to the body, causing warmer temperatures that may kill your sperm, lower sperm count & cause infertility.

Wear boxers instead, & go to bed naked if you want to become a father

Dear guys, check if you have #varicoceles

3. May disappear when you lie down
4. Can cause severe pain
It's a common cause of infertility in men which can be corrected with surgery.

A thread 🧵

RT for awareness
#Varicocele is an enlargement of the veins inside the scrotum. It affects about 15% of adult men.

It may occur due to poorly functioning valves normally found in the veins.

Or due to compression of a vein by a nearby structure such as tumor or cancer of the left kidney.
People with #varicoceles may have:

• A noticeable swollen vein in the scrotum (as shown in this pic)
• A disturbing feeling of weight in the scrotum
• Pain in the scrotum which increases on standing, &
• Shrinking of the testicles

Sometimes, none of these symptoms occur.

Dear Men👨

Your average laptop generates 70°C heat during use. Placing it directly on your laps can transfer the heat to your testis. Prolonged use can damage your male reproductive function irreversibly.

Use your laptop on a table or desk instead!

RT for awareness
The optimum temperature for your sperm is around 20°C which is lower than that of other parts of the body.

Heat of 37°C or more can cause your sperm to lose their motility & viability.

Don't heat up your testicles now & regret it later!
Heating up your sperm laptop heat can destroy them permanently and reduce your chances of being able to impregnate your lady.

A thread 🧵


Humans belong to blood groups 'A', 'B', 'AB', or 'O'.

Also, we're either
- Rhesus positive (Rh+), or
- Rhesus negative (Rh-)

The "+" or "-" sign usually attached to your blood group represents your rhesus status!

Being Rh+ or Rh- depends on you having certain proteins called #RhesusAntigens on the surface of your red blood cells.

If you have the rhesus antigens, you're Rh+

If you don't have the rhesus antiges, you're Rh-

Male condoms: Failure rate 5%

Condoms are cheap & popular & have the additional advantage of preventing sexually transmitted diseases (STI's) like HIV & hepatitis.

But condoms can burst or slip off during sex & some men may be allergic to the latex or spermicides in condoms. 2/
Female barriers e.g. diaphragm/female condoms: Failure rate 15%
