You're not here because you chose to be... and you're not alone. Although it's not often talked about openly, male factor fertility is more common than you might realize. One in eight couples struggle with infertility, 40-50% of of those cases are due to male factor infertility.
The fear of learning that sperm counts may be low prevents many men from going to get a sperm analysis in the first place. Receiving news that your count is low can be devastating, especially because western medicine has little to offer in the treatment of low sperm counts other than IUI,and IVF with ICSI. The good news is that Chinese Medicine has been successfully treating male infertility for thousands of years.
Acupuncture and herbal medicine helps to improve sperm count and quality by increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs, reducing stress, and encouraging a healthy diet and lifestyle to support your fertility. It takes about 90 days for the sperm to regenerate. During this time we will work to address and correct the factors that are likely contributing to poor sperm quality.
During your initial visit we will go over a detailed health history. We'll discuss your fertility journey so far, address any sexual health concerns you may have, and consider your overall health, including everything from sleep and digestion to diet and lifestyle. During your second visit we will discuss your diagnosis in detail so that you fully understand how your symptoms relate to your fertility and your overall health. You'll also learn what changes you should expect to see that let you know our treatments are working. Our treatment approach acknowledges that true health doesn't come from a single source. We'll discuss a well rounded treatment plan that includes food therapy, herbal medicine, lifestyle suggestions and complementary therapies that help to lay the foundation for optimal sperm count and quality.
