Male factor infertility accounts for 40% of all fertility problems. The biggest mistake we see clinically is for couples putting all the emphasis on treating the female and neglecting to address the male side, and by simply also treating the male can reduce the total amount of time it takes for a couple to conceive. Treatment can involve Acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and/or nutritional supplements.

- Motility – Greater than 63%
- Normal forms – Greater than 12% (1)
