Abstract: 

In recent years, increasing use of medicinal plants has caused further research associated with medicinal plants. Male factors approximately include 40 percent of infertility, therefore, this research was aimed to investigate the effects of herbal medicine "TOPALAF" including Tribulus terrestris, Amygdalus communis nut, Allium ampeloprasum, Lepidium sativus, Orchis mascula, and Phoenix dactylifera pollen and Ficus carica on the improvement of sperm fertility. Sixty-two infertile men (age 23-40 years) were randomly selected for the assessment of sperm parameters, having spermatozoa concentration lower than 20 million/ml, progressive motility<50%, and normal morphology<20%, according to WHO criteria. Thirty-two men in the study group were given the herbal powder and control group received placebo. In both groups, men were taken 25-gram packs, three times a week for 3 months. After 3 months, sperm parameters were evaluated and compared with control. Data were analyzed by t-test. According to the results, the study group showed an increase of 10.46 percent in spermatozoa count and 8.14 percent in progressive motility (a+b class), but there was no significant difference in normal morphology. Our findings showed that the count and sperm motility parameters improved after taking the herbal powder in the study group compared with the control group, indicating its effectiveness in improving sperm parameters and fertility potential.
