The male factor of fertility is often overlooked yet 50% of the cases of infertility are due to male pathology. As a matter of fact, semen quality has seen a steep decline in the last three decades and assisted reproductive technology is limited for men. The go-to medical solution only offers Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) where the sperm is injected into the egg after an IVF egg retrieval. However, when choosing this procedure, the external appearance of sperm is what determines its eligibility, by-passing the root causes of pathology.

“Should my husband be coming in, too?”

This is a question I get often in the clinic from my female fertility patients. The short answer is yes, acupuncture is great for everyone, especially when it comes to fertility. There’s always something that can be improved upon to boost fertility, such as increasing circulation to reproductive organs, balancing hormones, reducing stress, or reducing inflammation. 

At What Age Does A Mans Fertility Decline?

Most studies and data we have look at how age negatively affects a woman’s fertility. Unfortunately, there are few good studies showing how a man’s fertility changes as he ages? We are now seeing fewer men having children in their 20's while men having children in their 30's and 40's has increased. Basically, men are waiting longer to have children. If it is increasingly more difficult to father a child with age will male fertility become more of an issue? At what age does a man’s fertility begin to decline?

What do men have to do with it?

Unfortunately, the man is often overlooked or ignored in this healthy baby equation. Fortunately, more research and fertility specialist are advocating men to be proactive and get in better health to impact their sperm quality to increase their partner's chance of conceiving, and a healthy baby at that.

3 Foods Men Should Not Eat When Trying To Conceive

Today, 1 in 6 couples are having trouble conceiving and studies are showing that male fertility is on a steep decline. The average man is producing less than half the amount of sperm compared to the men in the 1940's. The fact that sperm counts have had such a significant decline in a relatively short period of time points towards more lifestyle and environmental factors rather than genetic. The good news is that we are much more able to control our environment and lifestyle compared to trying to change our genetics!

Often overlooked in light of a “normal” semen analysis is the possible role that sperm quality could be playing in a couple struggling with infertility.

Tired Sperm? Sleep More! How Sleep Influences Male Fertility

When it comes to fertility I believe there are a handful of things we do an a daily basis that greatly effect our chances of conceiving. One area that I like to focus on with all my patients is their sleep. Staying up late, burning the midnight oil to get through a project can be extremely detrimental to our fertility if done for a long period of time. This one habit can lower sperm counts and other sperm parameters.
