Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are very effective in improving the overall quality of sperm for the majority of men. For men incorporating IVF, IUI, or ICSI, Oriental medicine can greatly contribute to the success of these procedures, especially if treatment begins several months prior to the commencement of Western treatment.
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can help optimize fertility in men by:
• Improving sperm motility
• Improving semen volume
• Improving Sperm morphology
• Rectifying Anti-Sperm antibodies
• Increasing Libido
• Treating Erectile Dysfunction
• Resolving stress to promote relaxation
Treatment for male fertility depends on the patient’s underlying Chinese Diagnosis and therefore calls for different combinations of Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Formulas, Dietary modifications, Nutritional Supplementation, and Lifestyle guidance.
While every case is different, the general rule of thumb is 3-6 months of treatment prior to natural or assisted conception. A 3-month minimum is the time it takes to balance and regulate the reproductive system so that healthy sperm are produced. Acupuncture treatments are typically performed weekly and Chinese herbal formulas are added to further balance the body.
