Although there is a large amount that leaves from time to time, studies show that healthy and strong sperm takes over 2 months to develop.

Its ok if you don’t have one testicle, one is as good as two. It doesn’t actually change your potency level.

The Y chromosome is directly inherited from your father. Every other chromosome is a fusion of the mother and father but the Y stays the same through generations sometimes.

Sperm cells could be attacked by our own immune system, but that doesn’t happen because they have a external layer of cells that prevents this damage.

Although every ejaculation may only be around half a teaspoon, it contains 200 million sperms. That is two-thirds the population of the United States.
