Hot tubs, saunas, etc are probably okay in moderation, but the more overheating and the more marginal the baseline sperm quality, the more adverse the effect.

Because of the heat organisms can grow and there have been infections some of which can be very serious. Also if very hot people have had problems with dizziness and hypotension. ...Read more

Notice you have had blood in your urine & taking Macrobid which means you might have a UTI which might be resistant to macrobid. Urinalysis would answer this. ...Read more

I have an inflamed anus due to prostatitis.I been told to take a sitz bath. I now have jacuzzi   that i sat in for 15 minutes. How hot can the water be? Is 101 too hot?

Why do I have a hard time breathing hot air under a blanket, in a car with the heater on, or when chest is submerged in hot water (jacuzzi or bath)?

Sometimes humidity: Generally this may have to do with the water tension in the air. So hot dry air or hot moist air can be more difficult to breath in for some people.
