Introduction: About 10-15% of couples are facing infertility problems (1). Studies have shown that, unfortunately, today many young people in our country are dealing with physiological infertility. This type of infertility is due to a variety of causes, including testicular injuries, low mobility and low sperm concentration, malaise and malnutrition. Sporting activities increase blood circulation followed by increase in metabolism, dispose of waste materials and inert electrolytes, and regulate endocrine discharges and improve the efficiency of the nervous system, play an important role in male fertility health. In this study, the comparison of fertility parameters in active men athletes and Inactive aged between 20 and 25 in Bushehr have been investigated.
Methodology: A total of 40 local men in Bushehr were divided into two groups of 20 (active male athletes of sports clubs and non-athletes from non-athlete men with the same age and weight were randomly selected). Semen analysis was performed. To compare the mean of quantitative variables in each case group with the control groups, independent-samples t-test and to compare the mean variables among the groups one-way ANOVA test were used.
Results: In macroscopic parameters of semen analysis in active men, Semen volume (ml) and pH were increased and decreased significantly respectively but liquefacation time (Min.), viscosity, agglutination and color were not changed. While, microscopic parameters of semen analysis in active men include; immotile sperm (percentage), rapid progressive (percentage), sperm morphology (percentage) and sperm counts were significantly increased and the percentage of non-progressive sperm were significantly decreased.
Discussion: Semen analysis in different groups showed that active men had increased mobility and morphology in Simon parameters. The analysis of semen showed, active men athlete have more semen volume than non-active men athletes and their sperm microscopic parameters were increased and fertile. So, for reducing the infertility in athlete men should program them to do more active exercises and sports.
