The use of mobile phone has become more widespread, concerns have mounted regarding the potentially harmful effects of the electromagnetic radiation (EMR) emitted from it. The current study aimed to investigate the effect of the EMR emitted by mobile phone on sperm function. Semen samples were subjected to swim up then separated into two groups. The first group acted as a control group which was unexposed to the electromagnetic radiation. The second group was exposed to radiation emitted by a mobile phone at a distance of 5 cm. Semen parameters were improved after swim up in FertiCultTM IVF medium. Our results showed a significant decrease in sperm function as indicated by a decrease in sperm vitality and viability as well as sperm motility. Sperm cells exposed to the EMR emitted by mobile phones, will become weakened. Sperm cells exposed to EMR may start functioning poorly and this means that a potential decrease in male fertility.
Key words: Mobile phone, electromagnetic radiation and sperm function.
