Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine have been used for generations to improve men’s vitality and virility.
Today, research shows that ⅓ of infertility cases are the result of men’s factor infertility, ⅓ to women’s and ⅓ is of unknown causes.
A couple deciding to parent together begins here. The overall health of both parents will be invaluable to a healthy embryo and your future child. Acupuncture treats the most common issues associated with male factor fertility and increases the chances of fertility by:
- Improving sperm count
- Improving sperm motility
- Decreasing sperm DNA fragmentation
- Resolving infection
- Increasing libido
- Increasing semen quantity
- Decreasing stress
- Addressing genetic factors
- Addressing any underlying stress
By resolving these common underlying issues, the issue of fertility is generally resolved. Just as in women’s fertility, maintaining a healthy life and lifestyle will not only increase the chances of conception, but create an environment for your family to thrive.
Men’s Fertility Program
At the San Pedro Acupuncture Health Center we use a comprehensive approach to resolving fertility issues and achieving optimal health. In our men’s fertility program, acupuncture is recommended once weekly for 3 months prior to the desired time of conception. In cases of a donor or partner using Assisted Reproductive Technologies, the same course of treatment is recommended and we strongly encourage a treatment 24 hours prior to giving a sample.
