See answer: Though there is likely some degree of variation from one individual to the next, daily or more frequent ejaculation is likely to diminish to some degree the quantity and quality of the sperm and therefore "potentially" the fertility as well. It is generally felt that 48-72 hours is the ideal time interval to maximize sperm and semen quality. If not trying to conceive, frequency is not an issue. ...Read more

My sperm is not hot, before it was hot, dose it impact on fertility. I got married 4 months ago but not get any results in manners of permanency?

Please restate Q: I don't understand your phrase "hot" in reference to sperm. Are you speaking of temperature? Temperature of sperm should not affect fertility although temperature of your testes might (better to be cooler than warmer). Assuming that you didn't have sex until you got married last month (congratulations! By the way), that's not enough time to get pregnant even if you have sex several times daily. ...Read more
