Sperm Facts That You Didn’t Know About

1. High Rate of Abnormality: Over 90% of an ejaculation contains abnormal sperm. Although this doesn’t matter as just one of the million is required for fertilization.
2. Sperm Machine: Although there is a large amount that leaves from time to time, studies show that healthy and strong sperm takes over 2 months to develop.
3. The Attack Helmet: The head of a sperm is topped with acrosome, this chemical helps break down the external surface of the egg and enter.
4. One is Still Two: Its ok if you don’t have one testicle, one is as good as two. It doesn’t actually change your potency level.
5. Y Chromosome: The Y chromosome is directly inherited from your father. Every other chromosome is a fusion of the mother and father but the Y stays the same through generations sometimes.
6. Forever Fertile: Women have a fixed number of eggs and run out by the time they are 50 but men can father a son for as long as they are alive.
7. Immune and Safe: Sperm cells could be attacked by our own immune system, but that doesn’t happen because they have a external layer of cells that prevents this damage.
8. Mode of Transport: Sperm cells actually only transport the DNA that is required to create an offspring, they are not exactly what helps.
9. Keep it Cool: For sake of the sperm the testicles have to be around 7 degrees cooler than the normal body temperature.
10: Population: Although every ejaculation may only be around half a teaspoon, it contains 200 million sperms. That is two-thirds the population of the United States.
