We know that around 40% of infertility worldwide is due to the male partner. However infertility is often seen as a female issue, and men can often feel side lined and helpless, particularly during procedures such as IVF which understandably place significant focus on the woman.
So it’s interesting and heartening to see a number of male celebrities leading the way and discussing more openly, their own experiences of trying to conceive. This article in IVF Babble tells more.
Acupuncture and seeing an acupuncturist who specialises in fertility can offer both men and women a great opportunity to gain additional support during the fertility journey. Its estimated that it takes around 90 days for both sperm and eggs to develop and mature. A course of acupuncture during this time is a great way to enhance sperm and egg health, whilst also increasing resilience and reducing the stress that often goes hand in hand with the fertility roller coaster.
