52% Decline in Sperm Count from 1973 to 2011.

Is there a Sperm Crisis?

Recent research has shown that the average sperm count has fallen by 50% since 1973, and shows no signs of “leveling off” anytime soon.

While the underlying cause behind this disturbing decline needs more research, men’s poor health and lifestyle habits are often identified as contributing factors.

Today we are very excited to release data that’s been two and a half years in the making!

In May 2015, we launched a Male Fertility Risk Assessment tool on our brother website dontcookyourballs.com. It’s a free interactive questionnaire that can help you identify health and lifestyle factors that could be causing fertility issues. It’s now available on Trak… go ahead and try it, we guarantee you’ll learn something.

One common factor for erectile dysfunction is stress. Studies have shown that work, personal, and perceived stress can all take a toll on sperm quality, testosterone, sex drive, and increase erectile dysfunction. 

We found many of the findings fascinating and thought-provoking, and hope you do as well. This report follows recent research showing that men’s sperm counts are facing a steep global decline, with health and lifestyle factors often identified as contributing factors.
