Human sperm is male reproductive haploid cell (23 chromosomes) which merges with the human ovum - the female reproductive haploid cell (23 chromosomes), create a diploid cell, which develops into a new organism. The overall quality of the sperm, as well as the formation of the sperm, depends on the genetic background and changes, physical trauma, and many exogenous and endogenous factors in the testicles and surrounding tissue and secondary organs that form the reproductive tract. The analysis of traditional semen parameters according to WHO guidelines and DNA damage sperm by comet assay showed correlations of these parameters, as well as relationship between lifestyle and these parameters. Sperm DNA damage isn't significantly associated with traditional semen parameters (concentration, motility and sperm morphology and age of the examinee). The consumption of cigarettes and Cannabis does not significantly affect the quality of sperm, whereas alcohol consumption decreases the motility and sperm concentration.
