Men, did you know that it takes 100 days for a sperm to mature? This means that your preparation for ‘the event’ needs to be in place well in advance. It is suggested that male subfertility may be a factor in 50% to 70% of couple infertility cases. Up to 50% of male fertility problems may be unexplained. This may include low sperm count, poor motility and abnormalities with the sperm itself.
According to reproductive endocrinologist Dr Glenn Schattman ‘40% of infertile men have normal semen analysis parameters.’
Many people choose to have acupuncture to help maintain good health, as a preventative measure, or simply to improve their general sense of wellbeing. According to traditional Chinese medical theory, sperm production is governed by the Kidney system. You may have noticed that you have a general tendency to over-heat, or to get chilly at times – factors which could affect sperm production.
