Infertility affects about 15% of the world's population and male factors are responsible for 40-50% of these cases. There are many causes that could explain the decline in fertility in men: the environment and lifestyle, environmental pollution, tobacco and/or alcohol consumption, lack of physical activity, stress and unhealthy diets. However, no study has jointly evaluated all of these factors at once.

Now, the Human Nutrition Unit and the Laboratory of Toxicology and Environmental Health (TecnATox) are leading the study LED-FERTYL (Lifestyle and environmental determinants of seminogram and other male fertility related parameters), which is now in the recruitment phase of male volunteers between 18 and 40 years old.

Are you willing to help us?

If you would like to participate in this study you will only need to attend to a single appointment at the beginning of the project. You must meet a number of criteria to be included in the study: to be between 18 and 40 years, answer a series of questionnaires related to their lifestyle and other personal characteristics and provide biological samples to be able to start the research.

Those interested, please send an e-mail to indicating the subject "Recruitment Ledfertyl".
