How does drinking affect male sperm count?

increase low sperm count

I'm ttc but I it has been 5 months. I'm not one to tell my husband he can't have a drink while we are trying. He likes to have his after work drinks at night before he goes to bed How much affect does alcohol have on his sperm count. I know he won't stop drinking all together, but maybe I can convince him to only have a few or not at all when it around ovulation time. Any studies out there to help me out.


  1. Quote: "In men, alcohol may result in abnormal liver function and a rise in estrogen levels, which may interfere with sperm development and hormone levels. Alcohol is also a toxin that can kill off the sperm-generating cells in the testicle. As a sperm takes at least three months to develop you should try a semen analysis again after 3-4 months of abstinence to check your sperm count."
