There has been much in the news lately surrounding cuts to fertility treatment on the NHS.
The latest funding cut is now targeting couples where the male partner is overweight. While it has been studied that weight issues can contribute to infertility in men, this latest cut will have devastating effects on the affected couples. I don't dare to wonder if additional resources have been made available for counselling for those now left out in the cold.
However, there is light at the end of the (interminably long) tunnel.
Homeopaths have been working with couples for decades in relation to their fertility issues. It's a common misconception that fertility is always a women's issue. In fact, it's a fairly even split, with 35% of fertility problems being attributed to male factors and 35% to female. 20% of cases have a combination of male and female issues and the remaining 10% is unexplained.
There are many causes of male infertility:
• Genetic conditions
• Previous injury
• Prior surgery
• Prior infection/STDs
• Exposure to radiation or chemicals
• Unhealthy lifestyle
There have been studies conducted which have shown the positive effects of Homeopathy on male factor infertility.
Low sperm count
A low sperm count (medically speaking) is known as oligospermia. It is one of the major causes resulting in infertility in males. Sperm count of less than 15million/ml of semen is considered oligospermia.
Because of the individualized nature of the condition and of the manner in which Homeopathy works, it is important to seek help from a qualified homeopath. They will be best able to determine a remedy for you, along with deciding on the potency and dosage of your remedy for this condition.
Many contact sports can result in injury to testes (e.g. torsion, bruising).
Without even realising it, an old injury may be a contributing factor in preventing conception.
It’s important to treat any injury as soon as possible after it occurs.
Arnica, Hypericum and Bellis Perennis are all excellent remedies for soft-tissue injury. You should consider carrying a small homeopathic first aid kit in your sports bag.
Even if it has been some time since your injury you can still use these remedies.

Here is a short breakdown of how to use some of the injury remedies mentioned above.
Surgeries can result in an accumulation of scar tissue. In the groin area, this can block the vas deferens or other parts of the testes. There are homeopathic remedies such as Thiosinaminum, Silica, Calc Flour or Graphites.
Speak to your homeopath to determine which is the most suitable for you.
Homeopathy is not the only therapy available to assist in these issues. In my practice I have observed that couples who combine homeopathy with Abdominal Sacral Massage and proper nutrition have an increased chance of achieving a healthy pregnancy.
