Vancouver Canada (PRWEB) February 16, 2012

Age takes its toll on mens sperm starting at about age 30, and semen quantity and sperm quality decline sharply after age 45 according to a recent study presented at the American Society for Reproductive Medicines annual conference.

This can affect pregnancy outcomes for couples undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF). Advanced paternal age is also associated with a higher risk of spontaneous abortion and genetic disorders like downs syndrome, autism spectrum disorder and schizophrenia. Natural supplements and Traditional Chinese medicine appears to repair the quality of aging sperm.

Acubalance Wellness Centre, a Fertility Acupuncture clinic, is offering a free seminar on Fertility and Age: Can You Turn Back the Reproductive Clock? March 12 at Pekoe Tea Lounge in Vancouver. Lorne Brown, a Dr of TCM and clinical director at Acubalance, will be talking about the effects of age on mens and womens fertility, and what you can do about it.

Much of what we do is try to slow down the reproductive clock, repair environmental insults to the reproductive system, and extend that window of fertility for both men and women. Chinese herbal therapy and regular acupuncture has been shown to boost sperm quality. There are now some exciting studies showing that CO Q10 may be effective in improving semen parameters. says Brown.

A study published in the Journal of Urology found that Coenzyme Q10 supplementation resulted in a statistically significant improvement in certain semen parameters. The study stated that further studies were needed to determine to what extent those improved parameters results in increased pregnancy rates.

Another study has just shown that vitamin D levels may be a potent factor in fertility for men and women. Vitamin D is essential for the healthy development of each sperms nucleus. It also increases levels of the male sex hormone testosterone, improving a mans libido, according to the review of several studies, published this week in the European Journal of Endocrinology.

Vitamin D3 is one of the supplements I prescribe to boost male fertility in all my male patients particularly those over 40, says Brown.

    VANCOUVER, CANADA (PRWEB) May 21, 2013

    Actress Halle Berry’s surprise pregnancy at 46 seems to be part of a growing trend of celebrity and real-life women getting pregnant in their mid-forties. But how easy is it to get pregnant after forty?

    This is one of the questions that Dr Albert Yuzpe (fertility expert at Olive Fertility Centre), and a panel of fertility experts including Dr Victor Chow (male fertility specialist) and Lorne Brown (fertility acupuncturist and clinical director of Acubalance Wellness Centre), will be answering at a public information talk on infertility, May 22, as part of Canadian Infertility Awareness Week 2013. “The purpose of this talk is to empower couples with information and tools to make decisions about starting their family and optimizing their chances of getting pregnant either naturally or with IVF,” says Dr Yuzpe.

    “Many women dont realize that getting pregnant at 46 naturally or even with IVF (using your own eggs) is like winning the lottery,” he explains.

    A recent Statistics Canada report, co-authored by Dr Yuzpe, shows that infertility in Canada has nearly doubled in the last two decades. “The main cause of infertility is age,” explains Dr Yuzpe, “but most women are woefully unaware of how quickly their fertility begins to decline after 35. I tell any patient over the age of 37 that they need to be as proactive as possible in trying to get pregnant. Along with testing for egg quality and ovarian function, we recommend supplements and lifestyle changes that can help maximize fertility in both men and women.”
