Abstract

BPA as a xenoestrogen negatively influences male reproductive functions as well as sperm quality. This

study aimed at evaluating the correlation between urinary BPA concentrations and male fertility by assessing

semen parameters as well as hormone profile. It included (150) males divided into two groups; infertile cases

(n= 100) and fertile controls (n= 50). Results showed highly significant difference in mean urinary BPA

concentrations between both groups being higher among infertile group (P-value < 0.001). Besides that,

there was statistically significant correlation between the mean urinary BPA concentrations and deterioration

of sperm concentration and motility among cases with P-values (< 0.001). Finally, there was statistically

significant correlation between mean urinary BPA and hormone levels FSH, LH, T and E2 levels with

P-values 0.002, 0.033, 0.001 and < 0.001 respectively.
