Our expert says:
It is extremely important to apply sound scientific principles to medical practice. Anecdotal reports and a small series of cases does not constitute a controlled clinical trial. Therefore, I cannot endorse the use of fertiboost or staminogro for that matter as a routine in clinical practice, since there are no adequate large enough, randomised controlled clinical trials to substantiate their use in routine practice. Such a trial if it does exist should be accepted by an international well-reputed fertility journal and should be accessible to scientific scrutiny and statistical analysis. This is not the case with regards to fertiboost, staminogro or other such homeopathic products.
It is important to note that even if a product is homeopathic this does not necessarily mean that this product is free of side effects or the product actually has got a sound therapeutic basis. Also it must be appreciated that factors such as male sperm duct obstruction (obstructive azoospermia) will not be treated adequately with medication only. Such obstructions will require either surgical correction or alternate means of fertility treatment such as IVF/ICSI etcetera. I can only state that there is a tremendous market for such alternative medical products and that the motives behind their use (in the absence of good scientific studies) can only be financial.
