There have been a number of randomised controlled trials and pilot studies that have looked at the effect of acupuncture or electro stimulation of acupuncture points, on sperm quality in men with low counts, poor motility and morphology or a varicocele, many showing early indications of benefit. However because these trials all had different methodology and measured different outcomes, it is difficult to pool results in a meta-analysis and therefore it is also difficult to make recommendations for clinical practice at this stage.
