Improving Sperm Naturally: Top Male Fertility Supplements Reviewed

What you will learn

  • How common “male factor” infertility is.
  • How effective certain nutrients can be in enhancing male fertility.
  • A detailed comparison of 12 male fertility products available in the UK. Most recent prices & currency rates update: NOVEMBER 2017


Male Infertility Is Common!

Credible research has now established that male fertility is continuously falling1 and infertility is now caused by men in up to 60% of couples2. Consuming fertility enhancing supplements is therefore becoming an increasingly popular method to boost sperm quality for a variety of reasons:

Which Products Have We Tested?

We have tested twelve products, which are available on the UK high street or can be delivered to UK addresses. They are listed here in order of descending test scores. Please note that

  1. there is no upper limit to the scores as research-proven fertility nutrients can be provided in even higher quantities, and
  2. the pricing and composition of the various products changes continuously. The summary and comparison tables are therefore updated by the editorial team approximately every quarter.

What Makes a Good Male Fertiliy Supplement?

A good male fertility supplement has provide the complete spectrum of nutrients, which are proven to be beneficial for male fertility – in terms of quantity, quality and cost.


Composition in the context of this review is defined as completeness in terms of the presence of the 12 “core” research-based male fertility nutrients.

The 12 male fertility nutrients belong to three groups:

  1. Amino acids: L-carnitine, L-arginine, L-cysteine
  2. Antioxidants and Anti-Inflammatory agents: vitamin A, B9 (folic acid), D3, E, Glutathione, co-enzyme Q10 and pine bark extract
  3. Trace Elements: zinc and selenium

If any of these fertility nutrients were included in low quantities or left out altogether, points were lost on this subscore.

Nutrients must be taken together and continuously

  • Sperm cells take 11 weeks to mature in the testicles. Only then they are ready for ejaculation.
  • If you adjust your diet today it will thus take three months for the better sperm to be ready for fertilisation.
  • You must therefore keep the diet or supplement on an ongoing basis – ideally until your partner is pregnant or you decide for a different treatment (see comments below).

Some manufacturers include additional non-beneficial ingredients to differentiate their product and/or justify higher price points. These include Taurine, Maca root, Ginseng, Grapeseed extract, or Omega-3 fatty acids.

Some of these nutrients are thought to promote motility (movement) or vitality of spermatozoa, but no formal research studies have been carried out to prove that these claims are correct.

Provided the male body is healthy and the above nutrients needed by the male body to ensure a normal level of motility are present, un-researched and unproven vitality boosters should be avoided in order to avoid any unforeseen side effects. Unless specifically indicated, the origin and quality of these non-core ingredients are obviously a concern.

As an example: Maca root, a Peruvian root extract, acts as a stimulant and is sometimes consumed as a substitute for coffee. It is also used in alternative hormone (estrogen) replacement therapy8 because of its effects on the body’s hormone balance.

Its actual effect on sperm quality has in fact been proven unsuccessful in improving male fertility in three large studies9, 10, 11 against one small study, which has reported benefits12 .

Value for Money

A product should cost little to the consumer whilst offering lots of high quality fertility nutrients. The Cost per Day has been calculated based on the cost of a 90-day supplement supply, because a male fertility supplement must be taken for a minimum of three months, the duration of the sperm maturation process (spermatogenesis) 13.

Ideally the products should be taken until a pregnancy is achieved. This will ensure that a steady stream of high quality sperm cells is produced by the testicles and stored in the epididymis.


The Best Natural Male Fertility Supplements

Test Results

The eleven products we have tested were found to be vastly different in both composition and value for money, the two key success criteria.

Why Money Matters Less Than Nutrients

Value for money is determined by the relationship between cost and quantity and quality of the nutrients.

The price spectrum between the products is wide indeed with the cheapest costing £ 0.15 / € 0.17 (Pregnapure) and the most expensive £ 2.50 / € 2.82 per day (Orthomol fertil plus), equivalent to a staggering price difference of 1,600%. For a 12-month therapy, the total cost will therefore range between £ 54.75 / € 61.88 for Pregnapure and £ 879.65 / € 994.00 for Orthomol fertil plus.

The Average Price per Day of the ten products for a 90-day supply is £ 1.31 / € 1.48 and the Median Price is £ 0.90 / € 1.02. Please note that all costs are approximate and are subject to both exchange rate movements and price promotions.

It is important to understand the total cost of taking a male fertility supplement for a sensible amount of time such as the 12 month window of statistical fertility. However, the financial cost of fertility food supplements is a minor factor considering

  1. the cost of supporting a child from birth through to University, estimated at several £ / € 100,000 14,
  2. the cost of alternative treatments such as IUI or IVF, which generally start at approximately £ 3,000 / € 3,400 upwards.

Keep in mind:

  • Nutrients are more important than price, because a couple should not waste precious “fertility time” with a slightly cheaper, but perhaps ineffective fertility supplement,
  • Couples under 35 are considered infertile only if they have not conceived naturally after 12 months. Only at this point should they seek professional help and look at further treatment options. If the female partner is over 35 she would benefit greatly from having regular discussions with her gynecologist and learning how to calculate her time of ovulation exactly and time the Baby-Making Sex (BMS) around this time window.

Based on a 12-month supplementation therapy, the cost of a male fertility supplements can therefore vary between £54 and £880 (€61 and €994). This is equivalent to a staggering cost difference of 1,600% depending on the product.

Interestingly, the test found that neither the cheapest nor most expensive product scored well overall, because of their poor nutrient stacks.


2nd Runner Up

Third place for orthomol fertil plus despite its high price. Click to buy

Orthomol fertil plus scores 85 points and comes 2nd in the overall test. It has similar nutrient dosages to fertilsan M across all groups.

However, it loses points, because it lacks the important fertility nutrients Arginine and vitamin D3.

It is the only product in the test, which includes EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids. Perhaps this partially justifies its high price – by far the highest in the test. However, the link between omega-3 acids and male fertility is not conclusively proven15.

1st Runner Up

aminoexpert’s fertil M PRO was launched in 2015 and scores 88 points.

aminoexpert fertil m pro

Second place: similar to fertilsan m, but with less nutrient quantities

It has a similar nutrient stack to the winning product fertilsan M, but the nutrient quantities are slightly lower, which would explain why it is slightly cheaper. FERTIL M PRO’s carnitine is not Carnipure™ quality and it includes 200mg less Carnitine per day compared to fertilsan M.

It also provides 200mg less Arginine, 400 µg less folic acid 25 mg less zinc per day. It is further different to fertilsan m in that it includes vitamin A, but it is missing coenzyme Q10.

FERTIL M PRO can only be purchased in Euros. 90 days normally cost €73.5,  equivalent to approximately £65.00. Depending on the currency exchange rate this works out as €0.82 (£0.72) on a daily basis. Delivery is free across Europe.


The Winner

best fertility booster for men

The Winner: buy fertilsan M from

amitamin’s fertilsan M is the top male fertility supplement on the market with a total score of 105 points.

It was found to have the most zinc (40mg), the most folic acid (800µg), the highest dose of the super-antioxidant Pine Bark Extract (100mg) as well as the highest dosages of both amino acids Arginine and Carnitine (500mg each) of superior Carnipure™ quality.

At £ 0.82 (€0.93) per day over a 90-day period, amitamin fertilsan M is also priced below both average and median market prices of £0.83 (€0.94) and £0.90 (€1.02) respectively. With its comprehensive stack, fertilsan M delivers all the important male fertility nutrients in a larger overall quantity and quality.

This makes it the most likely product to increase all key male fertility parameters semen volume, sperm count, motility and morphology, at a below average price.

fertilsan M is also registered, manufactured and regulated in Germany under the terms of the official central pharmaceutical database.


It is worth noting that fertisan M is also the only male fertility product on the market today, which includes the purest pharmaceutical grade Carnipure™ Carnitine, patented and manufactured by Lonza in Switzerland.

All other manufacturers, which include Carnitine in their blends including fertilstart’s FertilMan plus and fertil M PRO use a lower grade.

Places 4-12

Six out of the twelve products tested are priced at less then £1 per day over a 90-day period.

Due to their low cost, however, these products lack sufficient dosages or variety of the larger volume nutrients Arginine and Carnitine. Again, it is important to note here that cost is less important than price – a couple must not waste precious time with a slightly cheaper and likely inferior product.


Third Place: click to buy FAIRHAVEN HEALTH’S FertilAid on

The products FertilAid, Profertil and Fertilovit M Plus all scored 70 points based on their nutrients and thus share the fourth place.

Here, they are therefore ranked in terms of price, because they cost £ 0.90 (€ 1.02), £ 1.14 (€ 1.29) and £ 1.24 (€ 1.40) respectively on a daily basis.

FertilAid scored 70 points, due to its comprehensive formula in terms of vitamins, antioxidants and trace elements. However, it lost points on its weak amino profile, which lacks all three key amino acids Arginine, Carnitine and Cysteine. It also has intransparent labelling (“proprietary blend”) and is slightly pricier higher than fertilsan M.

It is also not manufactured in Europe and therefore does not need to comply with the manufacturing and marketing directives of the European Union.


click to buy PROfertil on

Profertil scored 70 points, because I has plenty of amino acids and trace elements and had the most glutathione and folic acid (matching fertilsan M and orthomol fertil plus with 800μg) in the test. However, it lost points, because it does not include vitamins A, C and D.

At £1.14 (€1.20) per day it also costs 40% more than fertilsan M and has an overall inferior nurtient profile.


click the image to buy Fertilovit M Plus directly from the manufacturer Gonadosan

Fertilovit M Plus is a mid-range product also scoring 70 points, also because of a good amino acid profile. Unfortunately it lost points due to its lack of key fertility vitamins A, C, D.

At £ 1.24 (€ 1.40) per day it is also 50% more expensive than fertilsan M and has an inferior nutrient stack.

Fertility Support came 6th with 66 points due to its mediocre amino acid and trace element profiles. The vitamins stack looks good, but this product is also 20% more expensive than the test winner fertilsan M.

Vitamen came 7th with 63 points. All vitamin, anti-oxidant, amino acid and trace elements stacks are incomplete. It does have the highest amount of co-enzyme Q10 in the test, but attempts to score with Taurine, which does not benefit male fertility and in fact is thought to adversely affect it. 16

Wellman Conception came 8th with 61 points. This product has scored well due to good amounts of selenium and folic acid. However, most nutrient dosages are extremely low, especially with regards to the trace elements and antioxidants. Virtually no amino acids are present.

Fertimax scored 58 points and came 9th in the test. It offers a good amount of Carnitine and the most CoQ10 in test, but it lacks Arginine, B12 and D3 altogether and has well as lowest zinc and Folic Acid in test. It is noteworthy that it costs the same as fertilsan M, but has a significantly inferior nutrient profile.

Pregnapure was found to be the cheapest male fertility supplement in the test. It costs just £ 0.15 / (€ 0.18) per day, costing a whopping 93% less than Orthomol fertil plus. However, with just 53 points (placing 10th in the test) it lacks too many key fertility nutrients.

Fertilman scored just 43 points coming last (11th) in the test. It includes several ingredients, which are not clincially proven to benefit semen quality. It has incomplete amino acid and trace mineral profiles and is missing key antioxidants. The dosages on all core ingredients are also small.

Generally, due to their low price, Fertilman, Pregnapure and Vitabiotic’s Wellman Conception do not include significant nutrients which need to be supplied in larger quantities, especially the amino acids and DNA-protecting antioxidants. These products therefore placed 11th, 10th and 8th in the test respectively.

All Top 3 products fertilsan M, fertil M PRO and Orthomol fertil plus require two or more capsules per day. This allows them to physically supply larger quantities of the required fertility nutrients.

If you have any questions, thoughts or experience with any of the products please post them in the comments section below.

A Final Thought

it is important to relax when trying for a babyAssuming that you are doing your best to be fit, healthy and fertile, don’t put yourself under psychological pressure if you haven’t conceived yet. You will need to have been trying for 12 months to be statistically considered as a couple with problems to conceive.

Although the jury is still out as to whether emotional stress actually has an impact on your fertility 17, don’t forget that it is a numbers game – it all comes down to probabilities.

Even if you are doing everything you can to maximise your chances, there will always be a small chance that you may not conceive this month.. and you will simply try again next month. Always keep in mind that 85% of couples get pregnant naturally within 12 months.

So, simply try to smile, be positive and confident that you are doing everything you can. Try to actually enjoy this time with your partner (read the nice advice here)

Chances are that the universe will reward it.

    Dear Ronald, to the best of our knowledge the test winner amitamin fertilsan M is available for mail order in the UK, but not in pharmacies. All the products in the test are available over-the-counter (i.e. without prescription) so you can buy them directly on the manufacturers’ websites or their intermediaries. Here are the links for the top five products:

    1. Winner: fertilsan M by amitamin

    2. First runner-up: aminoexpert fertil M PRO

    3. Second runner-up: orthomol fertil plus

    The cost of treatment is determined by the number of days you take a male fertility supplement. fertilsan M costs on average £1 / day over 90 days. Three months is the minimum duration for the treatment, because sperm cells take approximately 11 weeks to reach maturity.

    There are no known side effects so you can take the supplement until your partner gets pregnant. Couples are statistically fertile until they fail to conceive naturally within 12 months. Please note that 85% of couples do so.

    Only after 12 months should a couple consider costly and invasive fertility treatment at a clinic depending on their family planning timeframes.

    MR says:

    Thanks for this comparison! We have previously been buying the Wellman Conception vitamins and supplementing with other vitamins but I may switch to the Fertilsan M when I order next time.

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear MR, amitamin fertilsan M is the superior product, because 8 out of 10 key male fertility nutrients are dosed between 2 and 50 times higher.

      Don’t waste your precious family-planning time with a poor product just to save 50 pence per day.

    How about Profertil?Its made in Germany and from what I read it has the ingredients mentioned above(8 in total). I read about it here My husband’s urologist recommended it recommended it. Does anybody know it/tried it?

    Thnaks in advance.

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear Scarlet, Profertil is joint third in the test. It is a good product, because it includes lots of Carnitine, folic acid and vitamin E. However, its Arginine dose is low, it lacks the important fertility vitamins A, C and D3 and it costs 40% more than the top product amitamin fertilsan M although it has an inferior nutrient stack.

    I did a semen analysis last June, which showed I had a low sperm count. The fertility clinic tried to upsell us into IUI treatment, but I found fertilsan M on this site. I decided to give it 6 months and see how we get on. We followed all your advice, timed our BMS properly around ovulation and we got a positive test in May!! Thank you menfertility! You have saved us at least £4K, which we can spend on our child now. 🙂

    Hello Dr Jones ,
    my partner has been diagnosed with non Obstructive Azoospermia, can you tell me if fertilsan-m would help my partner with his sperm count. The first semen test showed Azoospermia then after the three months another test was done along with blood test which showed a few sperm and raised Fsh levels. We was told we need icis treatment to conceive but money is a problem so if we could conceive naturally that would be great. I didn’t want to buy them and they won’t help? Ive read the reviews on this product but wanted your advice. Thank you so much for the website alot of helpful information.

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear Zoe, The male fertility supplements we have tested are based on research, which has shown that supplying various nutrients via the diet can increase the amount of sperm produced in the testes. If the mechanical process of ejaculation works properly, they can therefore improve the quality and quantity of sperm in the ejaculate. The food supplements will not help, however, if your partner has physical blockages in his ductal system, which cause problems with ejaculation.

Can i buy fertilsan instead and try it for 3 months, Can my wife take the Fetilsan with me and if not is there female version of the supplement? Thanks, you are doing a nice job

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear Moses, Remember that a semen analysis is only a snapshot of you sperm quality on the day and may be dramatically different after 4 weeks. To have a valid diagnosis you will therefore need to have at least two semen analyses conducted 8 – 12 weeks apart. Your specialist would have put you on a 3-month food supplement course to prepare you for the IVF sperm donation. It takes three months for sperm cells to mature so start taking a supplement immediately. Our team run an independent site so which product you choose is your decision. Your wife should take a dedicated female fertility food supplement, which includes different nutrients. amitamin, FertilAid and Fertilovit all have optimised products for women, called amitamin fertil F, FertilAid for Women and Fertilovit F respectively. Please do your own research.

    I just wanted to check information contained in your review. Your last sentence in the review part says that “Interestingly, no product in the test included pine bark extract.” however, one of the key stated benefits of fertilsan M is its high pine bark extract level. Is this just a mistake in your text or are you distinguishing all of the other products from fertilsan M?

    • Dr. Jones

        • Dr. Jones
          Dr. Jones says:

          Dear John, if you have necrospermia (few or no living sperm cells) that is most likely due to a blockage or infection. Food supplements will therefore not be able to help much. I suggest you discuss this with your physician, urologist / andrologist or local fertility specialist. Best of luck!

    hmz says:

    Dear Dr. Jones,
    I had 2 semen test previously and found that my sperm count was good, but the motility ratio was bad (15% sluggish and 85% dead). Please I need your advice on this product.

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear hmz, the micronutrients vitamin C, L-carnitine, selenium and vitamin D have all been shown to improve sperm motility – so make sure you consume these (read up on this by searching for “motility” using the search function on the homepage) . Also make sure that you take nutrients, which improve your count and morphology, because these parameters fluctuate on a weekly basis and you want to ensure you maximise your Total Motile Sperm (TMS) count at the time your partner ovulates. The most cost effective product, which includes all the male fertility nutrients is fertilsan m.
      I am happy that you are well your on your fertility journey. You have had two semen analyses and have thus been able to identify the weak link in your “fertility chain”. Good luck!

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear clarence, you order the products either from the manufacturers’ websites, online pharmacies or amazon. I see you are based in Iceland so do make sure that they deliver there. In fact, I just checked for you and saw that amitamin do deliver to Iceland. This is the link: Unfortunately I don’t think that Orthomol fertil plus deliver there themselves, but perhaps via an online pharmacy. For fertilaid you may be able to get delivery via amazon. Good luck!

    ahsi says:

    Hi Dr.
    We are planning to conceive, do you recommend to start supplements? I didn’t do any analysis before.
    I understood that it takes 3 months to be effective, will it be wise to start the supplements right now and if nothing happened within 3 months to do the analysis?

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear ahsi, no – if you start taking a male fertility food supplement of your choice today your sperm quality will increase in three months time. This is how long the production process takes. To be able to measure the effectiveness of the fertility supplement, you can do a “before” (i.e. now) and “after” (i.e. in three months time) semen analysis.

    Dear Dr. Jones,
    Many thanks for your kind help.
    I have been married for ten years now and do not have children. I took many medicines but all have not been useful. I used Proxeed plus for months and was not useful either. My wife has no fertility problems. My motility is below 50%. I would like to know if I take feritlsan m, can me and my wife have sexual inter course on regular basis or we can have periodically. Plz advise.

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear Ahmed, I am sorry to hear it has been such a long journey for you. But do not give up: less than 50% motility is not necessarily sub-optimal, because the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines state a minimum “progressive motility”, i.e. grade a+b motility (meaning progressive forward movement) of 32%. Please note that this assumes that your other parameters are normal, because this should be equivalent to a minimum of 4.8 million moving sperm cells/ml (minimum WHO requirement sperm count of 15 million per ml x 32%). Please refer to this article on how to read a semen analysis. If your morphology is above 4% normal forms your fertility should be fine. Do make sure you take some sort of pine bark extract, which has been shown to help with idiopathic (unexplained) infertility.

      My advice is to take the best male fertility supplement you can buy. Note that you must take it for a minimum of 3-4 months and continue until conception. Adopt the healthiest lifestyle you possibly can (including yoga, please read here why) and use a combination of these ovulation-tracking tools to precisely time your sexual intercourse around her day of ovulation: have sex the night before she is due to ovulate (you, the male, should have abstained for 3 days), again in the morning AND the night of your wife’s ovulation day, and a fourth time more in the morning after her ovulation. I hope this makes sense. Good luck!

        Hi dr jones. Im ferry and working at the vessel here in uk. I would like to buy fertilsan M. Can i this outside the city or in the pharmacy or if not how can i order. Many thanks.

        • Dr. Jones
          Dr. Jones says:

          Dear John, the supplements we reviewed are available in selected (i.e. “some”) high street stores and pharmacies. However, to save time we suggest you order them online from the manufacturers or intermediaries such as online pharmacies. Kind regards

      • Ben
        Ben says:

        Hi Doctor,

        As above, you have advised having sex four times around ovulation period. Would it not reduce sperm count and quality by having frequent sex around that time? To my understanding having intercourse again within three or four days is not good to conceive. Can you please advise.
        Thanks in advance

        • Dr. Jones
          Dr. Jones says:

          Dear Ben, please refer to this article for the research – Accordingly, you could have daily intercourse / ejaculation from the 10th day leading up to the 3rd day before predicted ovulation and then have a 3 or 4 day (not more) abstinence until the day before ovulation day to temporarily spike semen volume. This requires careful planning, however, and there are no hard statistics on this particular strategy. You certainly want to have daily intercourse around the day of ovulation to ensure that plenty of sperm cells are present in the uterus during the female’s short fertility window (max 36 hours after the LH surge). Best of luck TTC!

    Dear John,
    Below is my SA take a week ago,
    Quantity : 0.5 ml
    Ph: 7.5
    Total Sperm count : 48mill/ml
    Live count: 30mill/ml

    Percentage Motility sperm: 63%
    Rapid linear progression: 00 %
    Slow/non linear Progression: 55%
    Non progressive: 45%

    Sperm Morphology normal: 10%

    Kindly advise which fertility supplement i can use .\

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear Ahmad, Your readings are good except for the rapid linear progression. There are many micro nutrients which have been clinically shown successful in improving sperm motility. These include L-Carnitine, L-arginine, zinc, selenium, pine bark extract, omega-3 fat acids, glutathione and coenzyme Q10. We recommend buying these supplements in combination rather than individually to get a maximum synergy effect: Any chain is only as strong as its weakest link and the more effective fertility nutrients you provide for your body, the better your overall fertility and thus probability to successfully father a child.

      We strongly suggest to (1) repeat the semen analysis after 2-3 weeks to reduce the chance of outliers (in other words to “confirm low rapid linear progression”) and to (2) discuss this matter with your personal doctor and/or fertility specialist to ensure an optimal course of treatment. Best of luck!

  22. Sao
    Sao says:

    my husband sperm count is 35 and motility is 2.9%. we being married for 10years no child. Is Fertilsan M recommended to used.

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear Sao, his count is good, but his motility is poor (it is also classified into sub-categories 1. Straight moving, 2. Zig-zag moving, 3. Vibrating, 4. Non-motile) and for a complete semen analysis you are missing several other parameters. We recommend buying the best male fertility supplement you can afford, but importantly combine this with implementing healthy changes to his lifestyle including a healthy, whole food diet (see our recipes), no smoking, no alcohol and regular exercise. Good luck!

  23. Kenneth
    Kenneth says:

    Dear Dr. Jones,

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us free of charge, I started taking another reproductive supplement 5 days ago, is it possible that i can switch to Fertilisan M or do you advise that i should finish my current supplement and if it doesnt yield result i can change to Ferlisan M. Please advise.

    Please i also need to know if Ferlisan M doesnt give any side effect because i wonder why it has higher nutrients and cheaper plus why others refuse to consist up to level of it’s nutrients.

    Thank you

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear Kenneth, you can switch anytime – the goal is to ensure you match the optimal nutrient intake *as soon as possible* so your body can produce high quality sperm cells. Remember, sperm production takes three months, so if you start taking the nutrients today, your fertility will actually improve in three months from now – so do start as soon as possible. In terms of fertility nutrient side effects: to our knowledge none have ever been observed at the recommended dosages. However, once again – discuss this with your doctor, because only he/she can give you qualified, conclusive advice. I am unable to advise you on why fertilsan appears to offer better value for money. These are decisions taken by the manufacturers. I sincerely hope this helps. Good luck!

    • Dr. Jones

      Dear Tanveer, I have no idea I am afraid. If the manufacturer does not deliver there you could buy the nutrients separately or contact a local courier. Good luck!

    Dr.Faisal Ansari says:

    Dear Dr.Jones, I have used Capsule Profertil for two months for my infertility problem of necrozoospermia with 0% sperm motility but unfortunately i stopped taking the drug because it made my life miserable by causing progressive generalised irritation, numbness,tingling & pricking sensations to my whole body i.e. typical paresthesias which i am suffering for the last three months.Dr.Jones i want to know which ingredient of this drug causing me this nasty problem. Have you got any experience about these sideeffects from any of your patients. please let me know because i am now become totally crippled.

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear Dr. Ansari, we are quite certain that your health problems are not linked to the intake of Profertil or similar male fertility products. They contain only natural micro nutrients, which have been extracted from foods and have no observable side-effects.

      Your symptoms are therefore most likely caused by something else and it´s just by coincidence that you are also taking the fertility supplement. Only a fully qualified medical doctor will be able to provide you with a conclusive diagnosis.

      Finally, food supplements is not suited for the effective treatment of necrozoospermia, because it may be caused by any of the 26 issues outlined in this article. We therefore strongly suggest you see your nearest GP/Physician at your earliest convenience. Good luck!

    Dear Dr Jones,

    I am living in Qatar and I have fertility problem my sperm count is 34mil/ml and volume is 0.5ml and motility is 5% and I am taking different medicines for last two years but still no progress.I checked that I cannot buy fertilsan M also because they are not supplying out of eurpion countries because of high spenditure. Kindly advise what I have to do.

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear ch.F, the information you have provided is incomplete and therefore conclusive. However, from what you have provided your sperm volume is very low (normal is 2ml+) whilst your motility and sperm count are within normal WHO parameters. The amino acid L-arginine is known to positively affect semen volume so you can either buy an arginine-only supplement, better buy a combination supplement like the ones we have reviewed on this page. If the manufacturer of fertilsan does not deliver directly to your country you could search / google for regional distributors, buy each nutrient via individual supplements or contact a courier in Europe who will forward a shipment on to you. Good luck!

  29. GK
    GK says:

    In October 2015 I was horrified to discover my sperm had 0% morphology while the other counts were acceptable if not spectacular.

    It was clear that the clinic would love to get me on an expensive solution, but I first decided to research online, and as a result took three courses of action:

    1. I stopped steaming and saunas
    2. I stopped wearing underwear to bed
    3. I took Fertilsan three times per day


    It turns out we had conceived totally naturally within 10-weeks of my starting the Fertilsan! The day before we realized, I’d taken my second sperm test at the 12-week mark from the initial test. The results were phenomenal. Within that space of time my morphology had risen to 11% … from zero just 12 weeks before! My other counts had also improved significantly … to that of a 21-year old … bear in mind I’m 45!

    Here are the important before-and-after figures in just 12-weeks:

    Total Motility: From 60 to 67
    Progressive: From 48 to 57

    Vitality: From >60 to >67

    Count mill/ml: From 38 to 112
    Count mill: From 129 to 448

    Morphology: From 0% to 11%

    These are pretty extraordinary changes – especially the count/mill and morphology – and there is no doubt in my mind that Fertilsan played the key role.

    Do the research before those clinics rope you into their expensive treatments. Fertilsan may appear to be expensive, but it’s a lot cheaper than the clinical merry-go-round.

    I will post in other forums and hope this helps others as previous reviews have helped us.

          Dear Rasalingam, if you can provide your entire semen analysis report I can provide you with an analysis. Yes, CoQ-10 has been shown to improve motility (read more on this page). However, Carnitine, vitamin C + D + E are particularly effective in improving motility. We will shortly publish an article on this on our site. You therefore need to make sure you you increase the quantity of these nutrients in your diet. The most convenient & economic way to do this is with a male fertility combination supplement. Best of luck!

    Hi Doctor,

    I am married since 1.5 years and been trying for a baby since one year. I have done all tests and my wife is suffering from PCOS while I have low sperm count, done 3 tests and it came below 2 million/ml. I am having just low testosterone level and my endocrinologist mentioned not to take testosterone medicine, as it would drop sperm count. I really look forward going for medication as don’t want to spend monies on IVF/ISCI treatments at this stage. I am 28 years and my wife is 24.

    I have taken fertilaid and count boost since 2 months and then I recently started herbal medicine, which contains WITHANA SOMNIFERA, DAMIANA, CALTROPS, CURCULIGO ORCLOIDES since one month.

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear Gaurav, I would only use a fertility supplement if you have definitely excluded any medical problems such as varicoceles or sperm transport obstructions within your reproductive system. You might want to consider a supplement is you are preparing for ICSI treatment. Best of luck!

      Dear Yassim, this website deals specifically with male fertility. To boost your Testosterone levels and your erectile function naturally I would suggest (1) to get into a clean lifestyle, (2) get into weight lifting (research stronglifts 5×5) and (3) take an arginine + pine bark extract combination supplement. I also strongly advise avoiding pornography and saving your sexual energy to satisfy your partner. Best of luck!

      Dear Catalin, yes you take take the nutrients individually of course. Keep in mind, however, that the chain is only as strong as its weakest link. You therefore need to make sure you take as many of the 13 fertility nutrients as you can at the same time. Best of luck!

    No symptoms of STI
    No problem in urination or ejaculation
    Caffeine intake: 1 cup of tea daily, no frizzy drinks
    Dont smoke or drink

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear Garrick, your count and morphology are fine: both are at 200% (minimum is 20 million/ml for count) and 650% (minimum is 4% normal forms for morphology). The issue is indeed your active motility, which should be at 32%+. I suggest several things: firstly, do at least one, better two more semen analyses (SA) approx. 2-3 weeks apart to ensure the 0% active motility reading is not an outlier. Keep in mind that SA fluctuates significantly even in the short term based on environmental influences. Secondly, focus your diet on motility-enhancing nutrients:

      – 2 g/day L-Carnitine + Vitamin E increases sperm motility 59% over eight months
      – 3 g/day L-Carnitine increases sperm motility by 40% over three months
      – 2,000 mg/day Vitamin C increases sperm motility 39% in 2 months
      – 4 mg/day lycopene increases sperm motility by 25% in 3 months
      – 200 mg selenium + 400 IU Vitamin E improved motility, morphology or both in 53% of patients over 14 weeks
      – Vitamin D (men low in vitamin D have lower sperm motility)

      I would focus on L-Carnitine, vitamin C, D, E and selenium. You can buy these nutrients separately or in combination products. Wellman Conception is a good product, but the quantities of the critical nutrient it offers are simply too low. You cannot squeeze all the nutrients you need into a single pressed pill. For this reason, the top 3 products in the comparison all require 4+ capsules per day. Buy what you can afford. Feril M PRO is the cheapest of the top three products I believe.

      Thirdly, do try out James Bond showers to supercharge your metabolism. Also, no impact sports allowed. A single nasty kick or fall can destroy your “ready” swimmers and it will take 3 months to make new ones. Best are swimming, rowing and running. Finally, depending on the severity of your low motility’s cause do start looking at ICSI as an ultimate solution. Obviously do all of this under the supervision of your GP/physician. Best of luck!

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear Younas, both your sperm count (WHO minimum is 20 million / ml) and motility (WHO minimum is 32% progressive motility) are low. Were you given a number for your morphology (% normal shapes?). You are therefore classified as “statistically” subfertile, however this means: 1. you can still father a child (at any time!), your chances are just lower and 2. you can do many things to increase your count and motility (refer to this article). My advice is the usual: take the right supplements, 3. live a clean lifestyle and get the ovulation-intrcourse timing perfect. Finally, never forget that the semen analysis is just a snapshot and that the readings can change dramatically within days / weeks. I would make the above changes and do another semen analysis in 3 months time. In the meantime, 4. learn to meditate (try MBSR), learn fertility yoga and 5. enjoy the journey with a positive mindset. I hope this helps. Best of luck!

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear James, unfortunately your data is not quite clear: if your count is 39 million / ml that is fine (almost 200% of the WHO minimum). Your morphology of 60% normal forms is excellent (1200% of WHO minimum). Your motility is slightly low at 30% rapid progressive, but still fine. Your volume of 6 ml is also very good. I would therefore conclude that you are a fertile man. If you are still struggling for unknown reasons, I suggest you try pine bark extract with arginine (article here), because this combination has been shown to help is cases of idiopathic infertility (all seems clear, but still no pregnancy). Finally, regarding intercourse timing: you should use multiple timing techniques in parallel: Basal Body Temperature (Charting) Method + urine strips + smart phone app. Also consider fertility yoga for both of you and mindfulness meditation (MBSR). Best of luck!

    Ian says:

    Dear Dr. Jones,
    Is it advisable for me to continue to make love to my wife during the period of 3-4 months when taking Fertisan M or do you advise I abstain from sex to allow for a build up and maturity of the sperm before we can have sex?
    My doctor once advised I have sex more often to increase the release and flow of fresh sperm cells. Kindly advise.

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear Ian, yes you should absolutely continue to have intercourse with your wife. Only abstain for 3 days before her most likely day of ovulation. This will elevate your semen volume for the first orgasm and make more sperm cells available. Google is your friend on how to forecast the ovulation date (use multiple methods in tandem: BBT, apps and urine strips to get as close to the LH sure as possible). Best of luck!

    Took Fertilisan M for 5 months with no obvious change in 2 tests (1 done in Nov and 1 in April).

    Whats the verdict, Doctor? (despite the lower range of 4% of normal forms by Kruger criteria). Am i fertile?


    Thanks a lot!

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear Mike, your motility is twice as high as the WHO minimum and your sperm count 2.5 times the WHO minimum, which is very good. Your morphology / % normal forms are WHO borderline (4%). I would say you are still fertile. Do take the normal measures (clean lifestyle & diet + supplements, no smoking, regular low-impact exercise) & make sure you time your intercourse perfectly around your partner’s ovulation. Best of luck!

    Onyi says:

    My wife and I were TTC for 18 months without success. I was almost 40 and my wife was in her mid thirties and that really got us worried especially after visiting some doctors for help. They could only help with diagnosing that the problem was mine after some tests. A gynecologist even suggested IVF after dashing any hope of us conceiving naturally because my numbers were really low. But then, I researched and found Fertilsan M and asked my wife (who was already getting impatient) and the gynecologist who is also an IVF specialist to give me just 3 months (which is the recommended duration for taking the pills), and if nothing happens then we would go IVF. And alas! Before I could finish taking the pills my wife’s menstruation had delayed for a couple of days! Then we got it confirmed. We now have a beautiful baby girl born last May!

    Volume is 4.5 ml
    Count is 18 million
    Motility is 50%
    I am using fertilaid for the last 12 weeks

    How can I improve morphology fast


    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear AR, The best nutrient combinations for morphology specifically appears to be

      – 200 mg/day pycnogenol / pine bark extract improves sperm morphology by 38% in 90 days. Study here.
      – 200 µg selenium + 400 IU Vitamin E improved motility, morphology or both in 53% of patients over 14 weeks14. Study here.

      Your count is also just below the WHO minimum of 20 million / ml. Keep in mind that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Rather than taking individual supplements we would therefore recommend a combination supplement like fertilsan or Fertil M Pro, which include all of the above + Arginine and carnitine, vitamin D and C, which also boost count and motility. Best of luck!

        Dr. Jones says:

        Dear John, supplements are effective at improving your sperm quality, however, if your sperm is dead (necrospermia) supplement cannot fix this. Necrospermia can have 28 different causes (google is your friend) so you need to visit a fertility specialist to get a full diagnosis and treatment plan. I can see from your IP that you are based in California, which happens to have 3 of the USA’s top 5 fertility clinics. Call the one nearest to you and get an appointment. They will also advise you on artificial fertilisation options. Best of luck!

      Dear Kal el, your count is fine (50% above the WHO minimum), but your motility is slightly low (WHO minimum for progressive movement is 32%, however this is partially compensated for by your good sperm count), however, I am concerned about your Morphology of 0%.

        I have and he has introduced to me L-Carnitine Complex @ 1000mg per serving. Am still taking now daily.

        I have previously have tried fertilsan M 90-Day Capsules in OCT last tear for 90 days but stopped, not sure if I should try it again?

        Thanks for your advice.

          Dr. Jones says:

          Dear Cal el, Carnitine by itself is a good start. However, depending on your semen analysis you may need to take multiple fertility nutrients to make sure you have volume, count, motility and morphology optimised. You also HAVE to take them for a minimum of 3 months (until conception), because sperm take this long to mature from generation to ejaculation. My advice is therefore to start taking a male fertility combination supplement again immediately until your partner is pregnant. Also follow the other advice (clean lifestyle, diet, regular exercise, good sleep). Make sure you time your intercourse precisely around her ovulation (instructions here) Best of luck!

      Dear del, I am afraid dietary measures such as supplements cannot cure azoospermia. We have covered some related research on this page. I strongly advice you get a full diagnosis from your local Andrologist. Best of luck!

          Dr. Jones says:

          Dear del, yes – it is likely the varicose veins are affecting your fertility. You need to get a full in-person diagnosis from your local Urologist / Andrologist. Best of luck!

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear Toshi, can could you provide all & exact semen analysis results you were provided? At first glance your motility (should be in %) and morphology seem low (yes, which you will be able to improve with a male fertility supplement), however, please provide all information comprehensively. Regards, Dr Jones

    Pls doctor is there any way a watery sperm can be corrected and boosted to normal …i really do. appreciate your time and your concern to the male ..thanks a lot..

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear John, We cannot give you a remote diagnosis on water sperm as there could be a multitude of causes. Please discuss it with your local Urologist / Andrologist in person. Best of luck!

    • Dr. Jones
      Dr. Jones says:

      Dear Deep, if your sperm count is indeed nil, you may suffer from necrospermia. Have you had this confirmed by a semen analysis? In this case medication or supplements will not help and you will have to get a full diagnosis in person from your local fertility specialist. Once you begin to ejaculate live sperm again, follow the advice on this page to maximise your sperm count and other key factors. Best of luck!

            Dear Dr. Me and my husband have been try for a baby for a long long time, my husband is diagnosed with hypogonadism, he’s on testssterone injections from
            Time to time, we have gone through ICSI with one successful pregnancy which was later a miscarriage. Will fertilsan m and antamin help my husband ??

            Dr. Jones says:

            Dear Sehar, I would say that it is worth a try, but keep your expectations low: male fertility food supplements supply lots of useful building blocks (nutrients) for the body to produce lots of good sperm cells. However, if the “factory” is not working properly, it is not able to “assemble” the nutrients. I hope that makes sense. The good news is that your husband was obviously able to produce some good sperm cells, only a single one of which would have then been used in the ICSI treatment. In other words he was able to do his part and then unfortunately you miscarried. You have very little to lose in terms of cost-benefit: 6 months of male fertility supplements cost a fraction of an ICSI treatment (approx £200 vs. £2000+?). Your husband may be able to produce more good sperm (note – he needs to take them for more than three months), good enough for you to perhaps conceive again, but this time naturally. Have you got recent semen analysis results you could let me comment on? You have nothing to lose by continuing to try: do get your intercourse-timing spot on and lead the cleanest lifestyle you possible can. Best of luck!
