Reproductive myths and misconceptions

I got this email today.

Once I masturbated thrice a day for pleasure and at night did intercourse with my wife and now she is pregnant I am worried that after three ejaculation the quality of my sperm will be low or stressful sperm and can cause birth defects in my baby.Please guide me should I abort this baby.
This patient's worries  are completely unfounded, and I reassured him that there was no cause for concern. After all, the fact that his sperm fertilised his wife's egg and got her pregnant means they were strong and competent !

We may make fun about how poorly informed he is, but his worries would have caused him to spend sleepless nights - and there was no one he could ask for help. The internet allows patients to reach out to experts for help and reassurance !
