Yes, factors such as diet, body mass index, sedentary lifestyle, caffeine, tobacco, alcohol, drugs and exposure to toxins and radiation can affect male and female fertility.

A varied diet, weight control to have an adequate body mass index, moderate (not excessive) exercise and avoiding bad habits such as increased caffeine consumption, smoking, alcohol and other substances are recommended to avoid damaging fertility, both male and female.
