Male Infertility

In about half of the couples who are unable to conceive, male infertility (or subfertility) is the reason. There are many reasons for male infertility but one of the more common causes is a deficiency in the number or quality of sperm.
Several studies have demonstrated an increase in the quality and quantity of sperm following a course of acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture can help those with a
low sperm count and those with whose sperm has poor motility.
A raised temperature of the testes in the scrotum may be an important cause of male subfertility. Acupuncture treatment can reduce raised scrotal temperatures to normal levels and so may be a particularly effective treatment for men with infertility associated with raised scrotal temperatures.
