CONCLUSION: The treatment of idiopathic male infertility benefit from employing acupuncture. A general improvement of sperm quality, specifically in the ultrastructural integrity of spermatozoa, was seen after acupuncture, although we did not identify specific sperm pathologies that could be particularly sensitive to this therapy.
Acupuncture improves sperm quality (motility, normal sperm ratio) and ICSI outcomes: The sperm concentration, motility, morphology, fertilization rates and embryo quality were observed. Quick sperm motility after acupuncture was significantly improved as compared with that before treatment. The normal sperm ratio was increased after acupuncture. The fertilization rates after acupuncture (66.2%) were obviously higher than that before treatment (40.2%, P < 0.01).
