A common, socially accepted practice is the aperitif.

Alcohol is consumed during an aperitif, accompanied by several or more meals

less frugal, in a convivial atmosphere, in a context that facilitates e

makes you want to drink. Alcohol intake, through this modality,

which appears completely harmless, in the long run it interferes with

functioning of the gonads, that is, of the testicles and ovaries, e

therefore on male and female fertility.

The gonads function through a hormonal mechanism that

it starts from the brain (hypothalamus and pituitary), through hormones

regulators (FSH, LH), and which leads to the production of

spermatozoa (and related seminal fluid that carries it), and in the

woman producing eggs.

Alcohol, when it exceeds certain quantities, compromises these

steps. In humans, for example, the intake of a liter of wine per

day, for a few months, leads to the blocking of the maturation of the

spermatozoa (are produced, but remain in immature form,

which does not fecundate). The production of testosterone, the male hormone

par excellence, it is reduced in alcohol users, in a way

proportional to the quantity taken and the duration of the period

hiring. A reduction in testosterone causes “disasters”: it reduces

libido (sexual arousal) alters the quantity and quality of

seminal fluid (reduction in the amount of ejaculate), does

increase female hormones (one of the most striking effects

is the reduction in volume of the testicles: testicular atrophy).

In women, even low doses of alcohol are enough to interfere with the

fertility, and this for a genetic predisposition. In sex

female the liver metabolizes, disposes of alcohol more

slow: with the same consumption, there is a higher alcohol level than

in man.

In the woman who takes the contraceptive pill, alcohol creates

liver damage, with consequences on the hormonal mechanism first

quoted, which could remain indelibly compromised, with

consequences especially on the ability to take root

of the embryo (an embryo that cannot take root in the uterus,

aborts naturally).

So a continuous recruitment, not necessarily

daily, and over a long period (years), can lead to infertility

masculine and feminine. Spirits are to be banned in this sense.

Red wine, which contains many antioxidants, can be drunk in moderation (one glass a day), taking into account the presence of pathologies and the use of any therapies, estrogen-progestin therapy (pill) in primis.
