General & Family Physician 's  Response
Different research studies showed that using laptop for long hours on the lap increases the scrotal temperature. This decreases the sperm quality. Also the electromagnetic waves generated by Wi-Fi signals decrease the sperm quality. So far no studies have been reported about the effect of heat or electromagnetic waves generated by laptops in females. But depending on research results it is advised not to use computer on lap for long hours.
