High intake of Coffee, Alcohol, Infection Leading Causes of Infertility – Nordica
Dr Abayomi Ajayi, Managing Director of NORDICA Fertility Centre Abuja, has revealed that excessive intake of coffee, alcohol abuse, smoking and infections are the leading causes of infertility among couples in Nigeria.
With branches in Asaba and Lagos, NORDICA which started operation since 2003 have delivered over 2000 babies through safe Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART). This is even as he noted that Marijuana and other steroids like sex enhancement drugs were other underlying factors behind infertility. In an interview with newsmen in Abuja, the reproductive health specialist added that long distance truck drivers and Okada riders were prone to infertility stressing that dangerous lifestyle leads to decrease in sperm count. According to the director, “A study in France revealed that persons who work in fuel stations over a long period of time will experience infertility because the fume that comes from the fuel causes reduced sperm counts.”
