It takes two to tango and male fertility can be improved over time as well. It takes on average 72 days for a sperm cell to be created. Studies have shown that undergoing acupuncture twice weekly for around 3 months in advance of trying to conceive can improve both sperm count and quality. Ideally lifestyle and dietary changes alongside acupuncture will help with improving sperm health overall.
I often notice one particular cause of frustration amongst couples about to undergo fertility treatment. Which relates to women trying to get their partner to eat a better diet, exercise more and generally look after themselves. Often falling on deaf ears! Sometimes it can be easier to take on board this advice when it comes from an impartial party. Many women say that after commencing acupuncture their partner was more inclined to make the necessary changes to improve sperm health.
