Stress during pregnancy leads to infertility of sons
Researchers from the University of Western Australia conducted an experiment that proved that the stress of a pregnant woman could lead to infertility of future sons.
The fact is that even in utero, the child reduces the number of sperm in boys.
The experiment involved 3,000 women who at the time of pregnancy were very stressed.
After that, scientists observed the newborn children. And it turned out that all boys whose mothers were very nervous or worried during the first 18 weeks, had very low fertility.
According to experts, the whole point is that stress hormones can change the level of key hormones that are needed for the development of male genital organs.
