    The study-proven formulation of PROFERTIL® is suitable for men with impaired fertility. We ask you to clarify with your doctor whether PROFERTIL® is recommended in your case as a stand-alone measure or as an additional treatment pillar (e.g. in the context of IVF).

In addition, PROFERTIL® can also reduce DNA breaks in sperm. Thus, PROFERTIL® can increase the chance of successful conception.

  • Are there studies on the efficacy of PROFERTIL®?

    Clinical studies have shown that PROFERTIL® can improve all sperm parameters relevant for conception. This includes sperm count, sperm motility (= motility) and sperm shape (= morphology). In addition, a reduction in the proportion of sperm cells with “fragmented” DNA was shown.

  • How is PROFERTIL® used?

    Take 2 capsules of PROFERTIL® daily with some liquid with or after a meal. Both capsules can be taken at the same time. If you have any further questions about consumption, please contact your doctor.

  • How long should PROFERTIL® be taken?

    Since a complete sperm development (= spermatogenesis) takes about 3 months, an improvement of sperm parameters is likely within this time by taking PROFERTIL®. This was also shown in the clinical studies on PROFERTIL®. The intake of PROFERTIL® is recommended until the desired pregnancy occurs.

  • Do I need to take both capsules at the same time or one in the morning and one in the evening?

  • Can I take additional supplements to support male fertility or is PROFERTIL® alone sufficient?

  • Does PROFERTIL® affect my ejaculate?

    Studies have shown that taking PROFERTIL® can increase ejaculate volume (more sperm).

  • Does PROFERTIL® help with azoospermia?

    Since azoospermia often has an organic cause, PROFERTIL® is usually not a suitable solution. However, in any case it is important to consult a urologist to find out the specific reason (obstructive or non-obstructive) and consequently determine the best treatment for it.

    In case of non-obstructive azoospermia, PROFERTIL® may be a supportive treatment in the context of IVF treatment (e.g. TESE). We kindly ask you to clarify this with your treating physician.

  • My partner had a miscarriage (repeatedly). Can this also be due to my sperm cells?

    Extensive studies indicate a connection between repeated miscarriages and increased DNA fragmentation in sperm cells. These are breaks in the DNA strand of the sperm. In the case of repeated miscarriages or idiopathic infertility (= infertility for no apparent reason), clarification of DNA breaks is therefore recommended. Especially in men over 35 years of age, the risk of a significant amount of fragmented sperm DNA is increased.

    Two clinical studies have shown that PROFERTIL® can reduce the proportion of sperm cells with breaks in the DNA strand.

  • Is PROFERTIL® also suitable for men with too many sperm (polyzoospermia)?

    Studies have shown that taking PROFERTIL® often reduces sperm count to a normal density. It is assumed that the micronutrients contained in PROFERTIL® can positively influence the self-regulation of sperm production.

  • How should PROFERTIL® be stored?

    PROFERTIL® should be stored dry, protected from light and not above room temperature (25 °C).

  • Is PROFERTIL® also available for women?

    Yes, the study-proven product PROFERTIL® female supports the fertility of women who wish to have children.
