The Male Factor

Acupuncture for Male Fertility

The world of infertility has long been dominated by focusing on the woman, but men have a significant role in the ability of a couple to conceive. Sperm counts and sperm quality have decreased by more than 40% in the past half century due to sperm’s sensitivity to heat, environmental toxins, diet and stress. Approximately 40-60% of all fertility problems are related to male factor issues.

The most common culprit will be a sperm disorder, such as low sperm count, slow sperm motility, or a deficiency in forward progression (the sperm's quality of movement). And any of these problems could be caused by a variety of factors. Here are some of the main ones to keep in mind though:


his sperm count may not decrease but it starts to lose motility around age 40.

this can also impact on motility and the sperm's ability to implant itself in your egg.

if he is underweight or overweight, this may be taking a toll on his sperm function.

STDs -
untreated STDs could impact on sperm transportation, however, this can be significantly improved if he seeks treatment.
