These men were found to have sperm concentrations that were 25% higher than the men who mostly wore tighter-fitting types of underwear, and total sperm counts that were 17% higher.

As part of the study, the men in couples who were seeking fertility treatments were quizzed about their underwear choices and which underwear do they usually prefer.

The men, who were between the ages of 32 and 39, completed a survey that included questions about the style of underwear they wore in the previous three months.

"These results point to a relatively easy change that men can make when they and their partners are seeking to become pregnant", Lidia Mínguez-Alarcón, lead author of the study and research scientist at the Harvard Chan School, said in a statement.

It's been suggested that 21st Century man is, reproductively speaking, only half the man his grandfather was. They add that for men with fertility problems, loose underwear has been advocated before. "Though the physiological mechanisms behind this pattern remain mysterious, the authors also discovered that men who wore briefs, "jockeys" (tight but long undies), or 'bikinis" (tight and very short undies) had lower blood levels of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) - a chemical messenger involved in spermatogenesis that is produced in the brain's pituitary gland.

The attack followed a similar assault on Farah in May, when fighters came close to overrunning the city in western Afghanistan. US and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces remain in Afghanistan mainly in a supporting and training role.

In order to improve your sperm production, you can try wearing loser underwear for improving your sperm production.

Wearing looser underpants could be a simple way for men to improve their sperm count and the hormones that control it, a USA study suggests.

Regardless of the types of underpants worn, sperm counts were in the normal range.

The results showed that men who chose looser-fitting undergarments like boxers had a higher average sperm count and concentration than men who frequently wore briefs.

So don't run out and buy a pack of boxers because you're anxious about your sperm counts, Kawwass added. "Additionally, the differences in hormone and semen analysis parameters were not different enough to be identified as the primary cause of infertility". The study was published this week in the latest issue of the journal Human Reproduction.
