Male Infertility: Women are not always to blame for conception issues
We published an article on this subject in the Hpathy magazine of June 2011, that was very well received. Hpathy is the biggest resource in the world for professional homeopaths, including doctors from all over the world.
This article is actually quite easy to read for non-homeopaths, and gives a good understanding about the root causes of infertility and possible ways to address it. About 30% to 50% of the male partners of couples visiting my practice for fertility need to get a support plan. Some conventional estimates put the level of male infertility to 60%.
It is important to understand that if you improve your sperm count by 10 million/ml, you increase the chance to procreate very significantly. Ideally, the optimal sperm count should be about 60 million/ml. Sperm counts have gone down for the last 50 years in the West, and the problem is so bad that in 2010 the World Health Organisation has decided to lower its definition of low sperm count, from 20 to 15 million per millilitre. To put this into context, if you increase sperm count from 20 to 30 million, you double your chance of conception, so it is worth trying. Complementary approaches are usually cheaper and less intrusive than conventional approaches.
