  Background & Aims : In the modern world of today, high level technologic facilities are necessary. The present study aimed to investigate the effects of electromagnetic field (EMF) on vasa deferent, prostate, and morphology of sperm.

  Materials & Methods : In this study, male wistar rats were exposed to 50 Gause EMF 4 hours a day for 3 months. After the experimental period, the rats were sacrificed, sperms were obtained from epididymis and tissue samples were obtained from vasa deferent and prostate and were prepared for histological study. Morphology of sperm was examined after smear preparation.

  Results : According to the findings, the height of epithelium and the nuclei in the prostate decreased in the experimental group and vasa deferent were condensed in comparison to the control group .In the vasa deferent stero cilia were disappeared and prostatic secretion were reduced . Morphology of sperm in the experimental group was similar to the control group. In the experimental group ferning test disappeared.

  Conclusion : This finding indicates that EMF has a detrimental effect on semen producing organs.
