We are all so happy at Whole Family Health, to have been mentioned in this Edmonton Journal Article on the challenges of dealing with Male Factor Infertility!
We love to help and support couples going through this process, and we recognize that it is hard for everyone, regardless of what the diagnosis is.
40% of infertility cases are due to male factor, and about 20% of cases are due to combined male and female factor. So infertility affects men and women relatively equally.
June 10-16th is also Canadian Men’s Health Week!
We would like to honour and support men, by offering 50% off Initial Men’s Reproductive Health Consults that are booked during this week until June 16th. Contact us for more information.
Stay tuned for more blog information this week on how you can improve Male Fertility with supplements and acupuncture.
Happy Men’s Health Week!
Dr. Alda Ngo
“I think when us guys hear the words “fertility issue,” we tend to look for ways to fix what’s broken. My wife and I have been through the grinder and every test conceivable (<-yeah it’s a pun) for Western medicine. There was no easy fix for what was quickly starting to look like an “infertile couple.” Our last option was surrogacy but we still needed healthy eggs from my wife and good sperm from me to proceed. We asked around about what we could do to increase our chances of having success with creating healthy embryos.
“We went for a few months of treatment & in tandem with a fertility clinic, created several healthy embryos as a result.”
Acupuncture was mentioned a few times so we gave it a whirl. It really was the best advice anyone gave us. We went for a few months of treatment and, in tandem with a fertility clinic, created several healthy embryos as a result. We now have a little girl that has just turned one. We can’t thank Alda and the rest of the team enough for helping us. They can truly make a difference.
Lastly, I encourage all couples to BOTH go for acupuncture. So often I see women at the fertility clinic on their own. I think it’s important for both partners to be there and go through the experience together. “
Here is also another dear patient’s video, sharing his experience as he and his partner went through fertility treatments:
