Traditional medicine has been effectively used in treating male infertility and other diseases of men. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of Y10 capsules used in improving spermatogenesis in male patients with semen quality impairment. The composition of the capsule includes Velvet antler (Cornu cervi parvum) and Cordyceps militaris (Ophiocordyceps sinensis) in a ratio of 5: 3. Thirty patients with impaired semen quality were recruited for this study from the Embryology Research and Training Center, Military Medical Academy, Vietnam, from October 2017 to December 2017. Each patient participating in the study used four Y10 capsules/day, two hours after meals, continuously for two months. The study results reveal that Y10 capsules effectively regulated LH and FSH secretion, increased serum testosterone levels, sperm count and quality in patients with semen quality impairment. Also, Y10 capsules did not cause unwanted effects nor changes in the biochemical and haematological parameters of the patients surveyed. This study concluded that treatment with Y10 capsules improved semen quality in the study group and could therefore be used to manage patients with semen quality impairment in Vietnam.
