Scrotum-Anus Distance And Male Fertility
A new non-invasive procedure for determining male fertility is currently under way. A recent study has shown that the anogenital distance ---meaning the gap between the scrotum and the anus in men---may help doctors to determine a male’s fertility potential. The study measured the scrotum-anus distance and penis length of 117 infertile men and of 56 fertile men and found that the infertile men had a shorter anogenital distance and penis length than did the fertile men. However, much more research needs to be done before this system can used to determine the future fertility potential in adult males.
