Case report: acupuncture increased sperm count

A 31 year old man was diagnosed azoospermia (no measurable level of sperm in his semen). His testis and vasa deferentia were normal. The tests showed that his sperm production was impaired which was difficult to cure. The couple failed one cycle of percutaneous sperm aspiration and intracytosplasmic sperm injection. He was referred for acupuncture treatment. He received a course of 20 session acupuncture treatment. After a course of acupuncture treatment, his sperm count was 10 millions/ml with 10% good motility and 60% normal shape of sperms. With continuing another course, his sperm count increased to 18 millions/ml with 30% good motility and 60% normal shape of sperms.

Acupuncture helps fertilisation of ICSI in male infertility

There was a case report that acupuncture improves sperm quality and the outcome of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). 22 male patients with infertility who failed ICSI participated the study. They received acupuncture treatment twice a week for 8 weeks followed by ICSI. At the end of the treatment, sperm motility and normality was improved. The fertilisation rates after acupuncture treatment were 66.2% significantly higher than that before the treatment (40.2%). Embryo quality was also improved. Acupuncture has a positive prospect for men with infertility undergoing ICSI treatment.

Case report: effect of acupuncture and herbs on male immune infertility.

A case report was published that acupuncture and herb treatment is effective for male immune infertility. 100 patients with infertility and positive AsAb were divided into two groups: acupuncture group and prednisone control group. Acupuncture group was treated with acupuncture and herb medicine was also given. The control group was treated with prednisone (a immune suppressive agent which is seldom used because of side effects). The result showed that AsAb decreased in both group with bigger effect in acupuncture group. This indicates that acupuncture is a promising treatment for male infertility caused by immune problem.
