Male subfertility is often overlooked with couples seeking to improve their chances of getting pregnant and may be a factor in at least half of all couple infertility.
Sub fertility is when the sperm parameters are below par and there is difficulty conceiving because there is not sufficient enough number of health strong sperm who swim fast enough.
Infertility is when the sperm parameters are so low it is not possible for those sperm to fertilise an egg without the assistance of ICSI.
The Acupuncture Studio have a particular interest in supporting male fertility and we are experienced in treating to improve sperm quality.
Acupuncture can help to increase the health of the sperm enormously. Even when sperm counts are 'normal' it is well worth considering this extra support to make the most of the sperm that are there.
At The Acupuncture Studio we have a three month male program, which is beneficial simply for improving health prior to conceiving. We see many men who have low sperm counts, poor morphology or motility, offering acupuncture alongside herbal medicine, nutritional advice and supplements may help to support the production of healthy sperm. This is important for those hoping to conceive naturally and those having ICSI or IVF.
After an initial course of acupuncture we usually recommend that men receive more at the time of their partner's ovulation.
