Introduction: Studied showed that many factors affect spermatogenesis include Exogenous factor such as type of job, environmental factor, smoking tc. And endogenous factor such as childhood diseases, inherited abnormality, varicocele and etc. Previous studies evaluated one or more parameters on semen parameters separately. So the aim of this study was to evaluate both exogenous and endogenous factor on semen parameters simultaneity. Materials and Methods: Semen parameters from 300 patient referring to Isfahan fertility and infertility center were evaluated with WHO criteria. Patient history and same question were achieving with oral question. SPSS 11.5 used for data analyzing. Results: Result of this study revealed that both exogenous and endogenous factor such as smoking, long exposure to heat, chemotherapy, varicocele, overweight and childhood disease decreased semen significantly. But simultaneity of some parameters such as smoking and overweight significantly decrease semen quality. For example overweight smoker showed decrease in semen quality than smoker or overweight patient lonely. Conclusion: Although both exogenous and endogenous factors affect semen quality simultaneity, but some of these parameters may had sever effect on semen parameters. It's suggested that for clinical treatment with eliminated some parameters, improved semen quality.
