Is the damage in sperm caused by heat reversible?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez.
Last Update: 12/30/2019

Yes. Sperm cells regenerate every 3 months. For this reason, if the male's testicles have been exposed to high temperatures for more than 3 months, the sperm formed later are not affected by the temperature rise.
