Conception and Male Fertility

Historical update of semen quality

  • 1940 the lower reference value for a ‘normal’ sperm count was 113 x 106/mL1
  • 1990 the lower reference value for a ‘normal’ sperm count was 60 x 106/mL1
  • 2010 the World Health Organization (WHO) reduced the lower reference value for sperm concentration ensuring more men fell into ‘normal values.’ The lower reference value for sperm concentration is 15 x 106/mL sperm per mL (95% CI 12-16). This replaces the current limit of 20 x 106/mL2

Semen Quality Over the Years

Concentration is related to time to pregnancy3

  • Data showed 15% of couples could not conceive a child after one year of regular unprotected intercourseǂ
  • Male factor is solely responsible in about 20% of couplesǂ

Male factor contributes in another 30% of couples, therefore male factor is responsible in up to 50% of couplesǂ

Fertility – Nutrients and Sperm Quality

A prenatal male fertility supplement Proxeed plus is a complete formulation designed to support multiple sperm qualitiesǂ

Supporting normal sperm development
Antioxidants

Proxeed plus is a potent prenatal male fertility supplement that targets specific metabolic functions involved in sperm metabolism.ǂ

  • Oxidative Stress contributes to changes in spermatogenesis that affect male fertilityǂ4
  • Antioxidants are the most important support for free radical balance and male fertilityǂ
  • Carnitines have the most clinical support compared to all the other nutrients in the field of male fertilityǂ
    • Some patients have lower levels of L-Carnitine (LC) and acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) in seminal plasma
    • In men, a balanced L-Carnitine/Acetyl-L-carnitine ratio can help:
      • Maintain seminal plasma levelsǂ
      • Maintain sperm healthǂ
      • Maintain sperm quality, an essential factor in a couple’s fertilityǂ
