According to an article that appeared in WebMD it was suggested that "sleeping too little or too much can affect a man's ability to impregnate his partner." (K. Doheny, "Sleep Can Affect Male Fertility")
According to the article the "sweet spot" appears to be 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night. Less than 6 hours or more than 9 hours a night reduced the chances of impregnation by 42 percent. (K. Doheny, "Sleep Can Affect Male Fertility")
According to fertility experts the main explanation for the reduction is most likely hormonal. Experts know that testosterone is crucial for reproduction and the majority of daily testosterone release in men occurs during sleep.
"Researchers believe that the impact of sleep on male fertility is likely hormonal. Testosterone is crucial for reproduction and sleep is crucial for testosterone production. The majority of daily testosterone release in men occurs during sleep. Numerous studies have shown that the length and quality of sleep impacts testosterone levels in men. (D. Davenport, "Does More Sleep Improve Male Fertility"
While the study in the cited article found only an association between sleep and fertility, it acknowledges that it cannot prove cause and effect.
The article does conclude, however, by stating "based on this new research, doctors counseling couples should talk about how much sleep the men are getting,"
