Trying to Conceive – Fertility Problems & Advice

Fertility Problems

It is a fact that 60% of fertility problems involve the male partner, therefore any couple experiencing fertility issues must pay equal attention to investigation of the male and female partners.  The investigation of the male partner usually amounts to a simple semen analysis, looking at number of sperm, sperm motility and abnormal forms. However it is well recognised that damage to the sperm DNA is strongly linked to impaired male fertility and this is not picked up in the simple semen analysis. This DNA damage is caused by reactive molecules in our environment or our food.

Consequently, even if there is a female factor contributing to the fertility problems, it would make great sense to maximise the effectiveness of the male partner’s sperm by including Impryl as part of his routine. Maximum effects from Impryl will be seen after three to four months.

The same damage that the environment causes to sperm can also effect the oocyte (egg); this is the reason that many women are advised to take some antioxidants. For this reason Impryl, one tablet per day, is recommended for women seeking motherhood.


Becoming pregnant is a time of great happiness, especially if it has been a struggle to achieve. Sadly, not all pregnancies progress to term and can be lost through miscarriage. Miscarriages following Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) occur more frequently than in non-ART pregnancies.

The majority of early miscarriages and many of the late miscarriages are attributable to a male factor, i.e. a sperm has been able to fertilise the egg but has not properly activated the embryo – this issue causing miscarriage later on. In the case of Intra-cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), a single sperm is selected from a sample.  It is, therefore, wise to offer a nutritional supplement to the male partner which can reduce sperm oxidative damage, especially in the case of repeated IVF or ICSI cycles when early pregnancy loss has been experienced.

Dosage and duration of Impryl

In women, the recommended course of treatment is based upon the amount of time it takes for a cohort of follicles to develop until ovulation occurs, which is 3 cycles, i.e. 1 tablet of Impryl per day for approximately 3 months.
