The Fertility Clinic works with couples trying to conceive naturally and with those pursuing IUI and IVF for male factor fertility issues. Acupuncture, supplements and herbs have been successfully shown to increase sperm counts and motility, and to decrease abnormal morphology.
Male sub-fertility generally results in a combination of abnormal laboratory test results. Chinese medicine is very effective in improving the overall quality and quantity of sperm for the majority of men. For men incorporating IUI, IVF, or ICSI, Chinese medicine can greatly contribute to the success of these procedures.
At The Fertility Clinic, a treatment plan may involve one or both partners, and may incorporate various combinations of nutritional supplements, herbal formulae, acupuncture and lifestyle modifications.
We recommend a minimum of 3 months of treatment for men with sub-optimal semen parameters to address the full 90-day process of sperm maturation. Acupuncture and other holistic treatments can be incorporated into a plan that involves IUI and IVF to increase the success of the fertility procedure. For men preparing for IVF or IUI, acupuncture treatment beginning 3 months prior to the fertility treatments is ideal for better quality sperm. If you are already undergoing western procedures, acupuncture can contribute to a successful procedure at any stage.
