OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of Long-term exposure to low intensity microwave radiation on male reproductivity.

METHODS: A total of 289 married male radar operators were included in the radar group and 148 married men unexposed to microwave radiation were enrolled as controls. Questionnaires were used and the intensity of microwave radiation in different working areas was detected.

RESULTS: The rate of sexual dysfunction was 43.6% in the radar group and 24.4% in the control group (P<0.01). The natural pregnancy rate was 53.6% within 1 year of marriage and 46.4% after 1 year of marriage in the radar group, as compared with 81.1% and 18.9% in the control group (P<0.01).

CONCLUSION: Long-term exposure to low intensity microwave radiation evidently increased the sexual dysfunction rate and decreased natural pregnancy rate in men.
