Fertility For Men

How can I help?

It takes two to conceive a healthy baby. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) sperm quality is in decline. Around 30% of men have infertility issues according to the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority report of 2005.

To compare sperm quality and how it has changed over the years, please have a look at these results from the World Health Organisation:

In my clinic, I have treated many couples who are going through IVF treatment or have ICSI. I have treated men who have been diagnosed with a low sperm count, poor sperm morphology and poor sperm motility. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information.

It is important to be aware that it takes 100 days for sperm reserves to be replaced. This is the reason why I recommend three months of acupuncture treatment for conditions like poor sperm motility and morphology.
