Some men had better not sleep on their stomachs, nor on their sides, but on their backs. So is this statement correct? Yes.
Let’s start with sleeping on your stomach.
Studies have shown that sleeping on the stomach will not only oppress the internal organs, resulting in poor breathing, but also oppress the male scrotum, penis and other reproductive systems, affecting blood circulation.
In addition, sleeping on the stomach is not conducive to scrotal heat dissipation, and also has adverse effects on sperm production.
Besides, sleeping on your side.
Sleeping on the side, that is, lateral position, whether left or right, will clamp the scrotum between the two strands, so that the local temperature rises, which is not conducive to the proliferation and development of sperm.
It is worth mentioning that lateral position may sometimes lead to testicular torsion, which is common in adolescents aged 12 to 18 who are thin.
In theory, it is not the testicle itself that is twisted, but a rope-like spermatic cord on it that is twisted and “knotted”.
Because the blood vessels that supply the testicles with nutrients and carry away metabolites pass through them, once the spermatic cord is “knotted”, the testicles will “starve”. Most patients with testicular torsion develop the disease after strenuous exercise, and some develop the disease while sleeping on their side.
So, on the whole, supine is a better choice for men.
At the same time, it is suggested that when men sleep on their backs, it is better to separate their legs naturally to give the scrotum and penis sufficient space for movement and heat dissipation.
If you are really not used to sleeping on your back, and sleeping on your back directly affects your sleep, and you are only used to lying on your side, then these friends are advised to put their upper legs on a big pillow to leave enough space.
