Not specifically, but if you search Google for motility improvement, there are many links that refer to progesterone. I would suggest asking your consultant for definitive advice..

Sorry..bit rubbish advice really...do let us know what they say though?

i spoke to an acupuncturist who is convinced he can fix everything. seemed a bit over confident. also told us of some herb mix that would help. will try the needle sticking for now and leave the herbs until we speak with our cons, just in case it jepordises any chances with ivf....

My DH's normal forms have gone from 15% to 43% normal forms after three sessions of accupuncture and avoiding the gym for the same three weeks. He had consistently had between 10-20% normal forms for the preceeding 3 years.

We use an excellent acupuncturist who specialises in infertility and IVF. She treated me twice a week in the 4 weeks leading up to IVF. I got 15 high quality eggs and we currently have 11 embryos doing well and awaiting transfer.
