Male Infertility II: What Sperm Likes

Inability to conceive in heterosexual partners is always a problem of the couple in one way or another. And it can be stressful for both partners. So we treat both to reduce the stress in both. And when I treat both partners the success rate is invariably higher. Men often don’t want to do that work. We’re programmed to struggle and buck up. Women tend to be more in touch with their bodies, in part because their hormones are constantly in flux, even on the subtlest levels, so they’re more okay w/ asking for help.

Make no mistake: semen quality does matter for IVF/ICSI

 Hopefully you had a chance to look at part one of this mini-series here. Now, let’s turn to the positive side of this issue: What sperm likes.

 Supplements include: 

  • L-Carnitine
  • L-Arginine
  • Co Q10
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
  • Chromium
  • Zinc
  • Flavonoids

I will mention just a few herbs. You are far better served by seeing a practitioner of Chinese medicine to get a customized prescription.  He or she will be able to tell you if need yang tonics, blood tonics, yin tonics, Spleen tonics, Resolve Damp or Heat Clearing food/herbs, Blood Stasis dietary assistance, or Liver Qi Stagnation resolving food/medicine.  In fact it’s essential to your health to know which ones you should be putting in your system—and which might not be the right ones for you.

  • Ginseng
  • Tribulus
  • Chrysin
  • Genistein
  • Flavonoids
  • Muira Puama
  • Maca Root

Cheers.
