Antisperm antibodies attach themselves to the plasma membrane of sperm, and this changes the properties of the membrane and also encourages the sperm to ‘clump’ together, preventing them from moving freely and reducing the likelihood of them reaching or fertilising an egg. The standard test for ASAb is the ‘immunobead binding test (IBT). We’re able to provide a general formula for ASAb, plus a further four differentiated treatments (with acupuncture protocols and Chinese herbal formulae for treating male antisperm antibodies).
