It is said that Male Factor Infertility and Sub-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.
Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine Treatment takes a holistic approach, working with Nutritional supplements, Dietary changes, Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine in order to aid in improving sperm numbers and quality.
Unlike the numbers often quoted by a medical practitioner we take in mind that for many couples higher rates are actually needed to conceive naturally. Once study suggested that in order to conceive naturally a man would need above the following parameters;
- Motility – Greater than 63%
- Normal forms – Greater than 12% (1)
- Volume 2mls
- Concentration 1.5million/ml
- Progressive motility 50%
- Normal forms 4%
