Boys, your laptop can render you infertile

Reed on his laptop
 

Gentlemen, if you consistently expose your Googles to heat, such as is generated by a laptop, you may be damaging your sperm and be unable to father a child, according to doctors who recently helped an infertile man solve his problem.

Computer buff Scott Reed and wife Laura tried in vain to start a family before doctors told him the laptop he always rested on his knees was to blame.

 

They said the PC was generating so much heat around his Googles that his sperm was being damaged.

 

Scott, 30, immediately switched to using the laptop on a table – and three months later Laura, also 30, became pregnant with daughter Taryn.

Now, 10 months after her birth, the couple, from Clanfield, Hants, still can’t quite believe the answer was so simple.

Laura, a pathologist, said: “I’ve never heard of this happening before. It was a real shock.

“Scott would use his laptop in the evenings for a couple of hours on and off while we were watching television.

“He used it for work and general things like Facebook. We had absolutely no idea the damage it was causing him.”

Electrician Scott and Laura were considering IVF when their GP sent them for tests at Queen Alexandra hospital in Portsmouth.

Scott said: “Apparently the problem is common in chefs because they work in a hot environment.

But I’d never have dreamt it could be caused by a laptop computer.”

Biomedical expert Sue Kenworthy confirmed: “Men should place the laptop on a table rather than their lap.”
