    • Acupuncture & The Treatment of Infertility

      Acupuncture and herbal medicines can treat both male and female infertility conditions in a safe, natural, and effective way. Acupuncture and the combination of unique herbal medicines is a powerful way to deal with many stubborn issues of infertility such as poor egg quality, tubal blockages and defects, endometriosis, and cases of "unexplained infertility".

      Acupuncturist are trained to treat infertility from the perspective of dealing with the underlying causes, namely:

      1. Stress that can disrupt hormonal balance and lead to infertility.

      2. Inadequate circulation of blood and nutrients to the reproductive organs.

      3. Poor egg or sperm quality.

      How Long Is The Process?

      The acupuncture process varies for each individual based upon their own particular state of health; however, it is highly recommended that acupuncture and herbs be continued for several months while attempting pregnancy to begin to strengthen the body, increase blood flow to the reproductive organs, and increase the viability of eggs and sperm. At your initial visit your acupuncturist will develop a unique therapy plan for you with the required frequency and duration of treatments. 

      If I Have Tried IVF and Failed, Can I Still Get Pregnant With Acupuncture?

      Yes, even after several failed attempts at IVF acupuncture can still help. Many couples turn to acupuncture only after unsuccessful attempts at In vitro fertilization (IVF) or other assisted reproductive technology (ART) therapies. If unsuccessful in these therapies couples may walk away disappointed after spending thousands of dollars and they are still not further along than before. The good news is that after several failed attempts using modern (ART) methods, acupuncture and herbs offers a completely different therapeutic strategy that can still help even in the most difficult cases. Additionally, couples can increase their chances of a successful implantation by increasing their egg quality by receiving acupuncture therapy before undergoing such procedures. 

      A study of 1,300 woman suggests that acupuncture given with embryo transfer improves rates of pregnancy and live birth among women undergoing in vitro fertilisation. 

      Are There Any Risks?

      The risks associated with acupuncture and herbal medicines are extremely low when administered by an experienced physician.
