Abstract

The prevalence of overweight and obesity is increasing worldwide. There is an established association between female obesity and infertility but a similar link is yet to be proven in men. Herein we review publications, identified via keyword electronic database searches (1980—2008), which considered the influence of adiposity on male reproductive potential. It would appear that obesity has a detrimental effect on semen quality and that there are several potential mechanisms underlying this phenomenon. Br J Diabetes Vasc Dis 2009; 9: 7—12
