    Acupuncture for fertility – sharing a success story

    As our patients know, normally we like to keep a low profile regarding the success and “thank you” messages we get in our fertility acupuncture clinics because we do not want to overwhelm all the couples that are going through the tough times of trying to conceive.

In 50% of involuntarily childless couples, a male infertility associated factor is found together with abnormal semen parameters (Dohle 2010).”
