Can extensive fasting have adverse effect on fertility and sperm count? What can be the causes and effects of regular ejaculation in child bearing?

Can extensive fasting have adverse effect on fertility and sperm count? What can be the causes and effects of regular ejaculation in child bearing?

No for short term...: From what I know, fasting would not impact fertility and sperm count until the extreme end-stage of malnutrition and dying.

Will taking 1 mg of Xanax (alprazolam) daily affect my sperm count/fertilily in any way? Also, will drinking alcohol affect my sperm count/fertility?

Will taking 1 mg of Xanax (alprazolam) daily affect my sperm count/fertilily in any way? Also, will drinking alcohol affect my sperm count/fertility?

However the main issue with longterm use of drugs in this class (benzodiazepines) and in particular Xanax (alprazolam), is their addictive potential. Use with care, and I'd recommend not daily but only as you need. ...Read more
