Absolutely thrilled to chat with Barbara Scott, founder of Reproflexology, a specific fertility reflexology protocol. We covered so much, I would take a seat, and really absorb this.
We chatted about Male factor issues in fertility and the sadly overlooked impact in todays fertility model. The podcast relating to the sperm decline can be found here
We chatted about the decline in sperm numbers and normal from. Sperm morphology relates to how well the sperm are formed. In the 1960's this was 80% normal forms, today 4% is considered the norm. So 96% of sperm are not of healthy form. So 4% of 30 million is perhaps OK, but 4% of 3 million, 15million, or even 100 million is not so great.
DNA fragmentation is not routinely tested. DNA fragmentation s a huge huge issue. The video regarding Made in Chelsea Actor, Ollie Locke who underwent the sperm comet test and was surprised at how poor the results are can be found here
The examen clinic details regarding the DNA Frgamentaion can be found here
Research looked at 239 couples experiencing Unexplained fertility found that 80% had sperm DNA fragmentation, and this is not something tested unless you specifically seek it.
Additional testing, and more specific lifestyle changes are imperitive and should be taken on board. You can support for this:
A reproductive refloxologist can be found here
