Male Infertility

Studies show that 30% of infertility is related to male factor problems, including structural abnormalities, sperm production disorders, ejaculatory disturbances, and immunologic disorders. Irregularities with the quantity and quality of the sperm can lead to fertility problems.

Men concerned about their fertility often look for easy alternatives to improve their sperm count. They try to improve their sperm count by researching over-the-counter vitamins, minerals, herbs, and dietary supplements. Scientific data regarding many of these alternatives can be lacking or unconvincing. But a few of them do show some promise in improving a man’s fertility potential if administered in the correct doses.

TCM Diagnosis of Male Infertility

From a Chinese perspective, the main causes of male infertility fall under two broad categories: one is a deficiency of the kidneys (usually kidney Yang; sometimes kidney Yin); the other is damp heat in the pelvic organs. Kidney deficiency may also affect the liver and spleen and lead to stasis of Qi and blood. Signs and symptoms that often are present with Kidney yin and/or yang deficiencies include dizziness, tinnitus, low back and knee soreness and limpness, cold lower extremities, nighttime urinary urgency and insomnia. The presence of a varicocele translates to blood stasis in our Chinese medical diagnosis. The swollen veins obstruct transit; it is therefore necessary to invigorate and move the blood so the sperm can develop normally.

There are acupuncture protocols and herbal solutions to these issues, and it is important for male patients to prepare for upcoming fertility options.

In terms of dietary adjustments and self-care, certain changes partners preparing for a pregnancy can undertake can improve the chances of fertility success. Reducing cold drinks and raw foods, as well as limiting the intake of ice cream chocolate and coffee contributes to improving sperm quality and quantity and preparing a hospitable environment for a healthy pregnancy. Simple foods like chicken soup with ginger, beans and vegetable are nourishing. Fish soup with ginger is helpful, as is eating meals on a regular schedule.

Exercise is another beneficial lifestyle adjustment that relieves stress and can improve the health of the body and increase the chances of getting pregnant. Some traditional Chinese exercises include Tai Qi, Qi Gong and meditation. Many communities offer classes in these practices. Another option is yoga.
