Male Fertility Optimization

What is male infertility?

Male infertility refers to an adult male’s inability to start a pregnancy with his female partner. This accounts for 40–50% of all infertility cases. Male infertility can have many causes but it is commonly due to deficiencies in semen quality or quantity.

What is Male Fertility Optimization?

In our practice, we define this as the ability to optimize the quality and quantity of your sperm by reversing your metabolic and lifestyle risk factors.

Dr. Shapiro uses a systems-oriented approach to identify your risk factors and then creates a personalized, comprehensive treatment plan which includes: 

  • Treating Metabolic Health Issues Affecting Fertility
  • Creating Fertility-Focused Nutrition and Supplement Programs
  • Implementing Lifestyle Changes that Support Fertility

When infertility persists despite metabolic health optimization, Dr. Shapiro will refer you to a fertility specialist nearest you.

To be clear, Tribecamed is NOT a fertility clinic.

By definition, a fertility clinic is a medical clinic typically run by reproductive gynecologists or endocrinologists that provides assisted, reproductive services to couples that are unable to conceive naturally.
