Notes for this study:
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial 60 infertile men with idiopathic oligoasthenoteratozoospermia were allocated to take 200 mg of coenzyme q10 or placebo daily for 3 months.

47 participants completed the study and were analyzed. While the placebo group saw a reduction in sperm count, the coq10 group saw a small increase, the difference not being statistically significant. Motility saw a small, nonsignificant improvement, while morphology saw a small, nonsignificant worsening. There was a statistically significant reduction in lipid peroxidation and an increase in superoxide dismutase and catalase in the intervention group.
