Reproductive toxicity -- Dichlorofluoromethane

Reproductive toxicity -- Dichlorofluoromethane: Introduction

Reproductive toxicity -- Dichlorofluoromethane: Dichlorofluoromethane is a suspected reproductive toxicant and exposure to it has the potential to negatively affect the human reproductive system. Dichlorofluoromethane was once commonly used as a refrigerant and propellant but its effect on the ozone layer has meant that its use has been largely phased out. The severity and nature of the adverse effect is variable and can be influenced by factors such as sex, level of exposure and individual sensitivity to the chemical. Effects on the female reproductive systems can include such things as menstrual problems, altered sexual behavior, infertility, altered puberty onset, altered length of pregnancy, lactation problems, altered menopause onset and pregnancy outcome. Effects on the male reproductive system can include such things as altered sexual behavior, altered fertility and problems with sperm shape or count.
