  1. hypothyroidsm affects body temperature, which in turn could also influence sperm production. if the body gets too warm sperm production may decrease. i'm not sure if that's the answer you need, hypothyroidism also affects changes in appetite/weight.

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search.

    I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
