Many times, couples struggling with infertility don’t realize that it is the husband’s sperm that is the stumbling block. Acupuncture improves sperm quality safely and naturally, without the need for medications. Acupuncture improves sperm count, motility (speed), and morphology (shape). Improved sperm quality is essential for getting pregnant.
Kidneys and Reproduction
Chinese medicine recognizes the kidneys as the key organ for healthy reproduction. So when we treat infertility for women and men, we create a treatment plan that boosts kidney function. This includes acupuncture points like KD3, KD6, KD7, CV4 and BL23. Some patients will need their kidney yin nourished, others will require boosting their kidney yang. Still others will require strengthening their kidney essence. These are all aspects of kidney health, and vary from person to person.
At your first treatment we conduct an intake exam, ask specific questions about your health, feel your pulse and look at your tongue. All of this data allows us to create a Chinese medicine pattern diagnosis for your condition. A man with low sperm count may have one of many possible pattern imbalances that need to be addressed. His treatment will be custom designed to address this imbalance. Acupuncture improves sperm quality safely and naturally.
Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs
In addition to acupuncture, Chinese herbs also improve sperm quality. There are a number of famous herbal formulas that improve sperm count, motility and morphology. And unlike Western medications, Chinese herbs have no negative side effects. These formulas have been used for thousands of years to improve sperm quality, and they will be safe and effective for you.
Case Study #1
A woman came for infertility treatment. She and her husband had been trying to get pregnant for over a year without success. We began treating the woman, but at the same time we asked her husband to check his sperm quality. A test revealed that he had poor morphology (shape). After just eight acupuncture treatments and a course of Chinese herbs, his morphology was dramatically improved. Two months later they got pregnant.
Case Study #2
A man came for infertility treatment after finding out he had a very low sperm count. During his intake exam, it was clear that his kidney yang qi was weak. We used an acupuncture treatment that included acupoints KD7, KD3, CV4, to name a few. We also prescribed him the Chinese herbal formula Jin Gui Shen Qi, which nourished his Kidney yang. After ten treatments he retested his sperm and his count was in the normal range. He and his wife got pregnant three months later.
