By Dr. Ryan Funk, Dr.TCM, FABORM on Fri, Jan 17 2014
If you have been told you have male factor infertility there is hope. Even in some of the most difficult of cases you can make a change. Male factor infertility is extremely common affecting 40-50% of couples going through fertility treatments.
Recently I had the pleasure to work with a couple who's diagnose was severe male factor infertility. They had previously undergone an IVF cycle with ICSI with a poor response and unfortunately a negative pregnancy test. They were told that with the sperm parameters as they were it wasn't worth going through another cycle. This devastating news lead them to me here at Acubalance.
We set forward a treatment plan that worked on several different levels. Diet, Exercise and lifestyle were all modified with the addition of regular acupuncture and herbal therapy. He was already a healthy man but began to notice positive health changes. After several months of treatment a follow up semen analysis showed great progress in all aspects of the test. They planned for a second IVF cycle hopeful with these positive results. I am now happy to write they are successfully pregnant !
