Peter’s male fertility acupuncture for male infertility focuses on using the semen analysis as a treatment guide. The semen analysis can reveal:
- Sperm count
- Semen volume
- Sperm motility (how they move)
- Sperm morphology (how they are shaped)
There are a range of other disorders which may be detected via the semen analysis – but these require an advanced level of testing. These include:
- Anti-sperm antibodies
- Aggregation and agglutination
- DNA fragmentation
A semen analysis is made even more useful as a diagnostic tool when accompanied by blood tests which measure the amount of hormone in the blood stream. Peter can discuss these with you in your initial consultation.
Peter is often asked whether using fertility acupuncture to improve sperm health and semen quality involves putting needles in the testes.
The answer is no.
The acupuncture meridian system allows Peter to affect testicular function by using points on the arms, legs and abdomen – but never into the genitals. In fact, your genitals remain safely tucked up in your underwear for the whole treatment.
Acupuncture as a treatment to support other areas of men’s health
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can be used quite effectively to support and help other areas of men’s health including:
- Erectile dysfunction (formally known as impotence)
- Low libido (or low sex drive)
- Premature ejaculation
- Benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH)
