Sperm Motility

How to Increase Sperm Motility Naturally

Holistic, natural medicine for better sperm health and fertility outcomes.

Sperm Motility Treatment

Fertility health goes way beyond the health of the reproductive system, which means it can get pretty complicated. Of course, a major factor in male fertility is the health of the sperm, which includes sperm motility. This is how quickly and accurately sperm moves. If your doctor finds that you have low sperm motility, we can help you find a natural boost to get those guys in gear!

Acupuncture for Sperm Motility

Acupuncture treatments work to heal your whole system by balancing yin and yang energies. This balance means the channels in your body are flowing freely, helping improve circulation which improves sperm motility, as well as improved overall quality and quantity of sperm. This therapy is also effective in improving fertility health by clearing out excess heat and any lingering infections. Patients experience anxiety relief, improved libido, and see results in an improved semen fluid analysis.

We recommended you start acupuncture treatments as soon as it is determined you have a need to improve the health of your sperm. During treatment, patients can expect to have acupuncture needles placed on the lower abdomen, legs, arms, and sometimes elsewhere, such as the ears. Results can vary based on a number of factors, however, most patients may begin to experience results within 12 months of receiving weekly treatment. We will likely recommend combining acupuncture with Chinese herbs to maximize effectiveness and may also recommend e-stim.

Herbal Medicine for Sperm Motility

Chinese herbs and herb formulas help improve fertility outcomes, while also supporting overall wellness. Herbs for sperm motility improve circulation to the genitals and testes, clearing out excess heat, and assisting in clearing lingering infections. Each formula and treatment plan is custom-created to each patient, taking into consideration lifestyle, medical history, goals, and any other factor that may play a role in fertility. Practitioners may also coach patients on how to reduce environmental factors and how to adopt lifestyle changes for improved sperm count, morphology, and motility.

Results can vary based on a number of factors, however, most patients may begin to experience initial results within 6 months and sustained results in 12-24 months. After discussing your health history, we may recommend combining this therapy with acupuncture. We see better outcomes with improved results when these treatments are paired together for fertility treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Sperm Motility?

Sperm motility is to measure the speed and efficiency of how sperm travels. Progression of 25 micrometers per second is deemed normal. In addition to speed, healthy sperm will progress in a forward path. Some issues with sperm motility include sperm that is slow/sluggish, nonprogressive, and non-moving. 

What Is the Normal Range of Sperm Motility?

Healthy sperm will move at a rate of at least 25 micrometers per second. Average sperm motility also means that 40% or more of sperm are moving.  

What Causes Low Sperm Motility?

Low sperm motility can be caused by genetics or medical conditions. There are also a number of lifestyle factors that impact sperm health, including weight, exercise, stress levels, drug use, and high alcohol use. Exposure to chemicals, toxins, and high heat can also hurt sperm health. 

Can Low Sperm Motility Cause Pregnancy?

It is still possible to conceive with low sperm motility. It may be more difficult and require more time if there is a high percentage of sperm that is deemed unhealthy. IVF treatment may be a good option if sperm health is the main cause of fertility issues.

Does Sperm Washing Increase Motility?
