Boxers or Briefs?

I've been TTC for four months with no luck yet. During my google mania, I stumbled upon a forum "what to do to increase his fertility." It said he should wear boxers. My husband is a brief man. Should I make him switch?

 My doctor recently told DH not to wear tight pants or compression shorts. We asked if briefs were okay and she said they should be fine.

The point is to keep the boys cool. Heat can kill sperm. Briefs keep them closer to the body hence they are warmer. It wouldn't hurt switching if he is open to it.

I think this is just an old wives tale. My husband wears briefs and he wears Wranglers, and we had a son almost 5 years ago. We just got pregnant at few weeks ago, but lost the pregnancy. So i don't think it has anything to do with what he wears. that is only my opinion though.

DH wears boxer briefs. I'm 8 weeks pregnant. When we first started ttc 5 years ago he was wearing boxers. He switched to boxer briefs last year by his choice. Also when I got pregnant with DD in 2003 he was wearing boxers. So I don't know if underwear is really a factor or not.
