i have two young sons that like to use the steam room. My wife heard from someone that the steam room could lower their sperm count. Do you know this to be true?"

Not being doctors, we cannot provide a biological response.
We advise that you check with your family physician.
I did find this tidbit on MayoClinic.com but we still can't take it as gospel.
Overheating the testicles. Frequent use of saunas or hot tubs may temporarily lower your sperm count. Sitting for long periods or wearing tight clothing also may increase the temperature in your scrotum and reduce sperm production
