The influence of the long (4 months, 2 hr/day) impulsive electromagnetic irradiation with the power density of 0.25 mW/cm2 on the testes and epididymides was studied. The results demonstrate the high sensitivity of the rat testes and epididymides to electromagnetic field of 3 GHz.

Some destructive changes both in the seminiferous tubules and testicular tissue were found. The full recovery has not been observed even 4 months after irradiation was finished.
