Our expert says:
In some patients where underwear traps heat such as nylon underwear, this may result in above average heating of the scotum and this may impact on sperm production negatively. Obviously it depends on how often such nylon underwear is worn and also the physique of the individual. In patients who are obese wearing such underwear may aggravate the heat factor. The same may occur with very tight jeans and other clothing that prevents heat dissipation.
