Acupuncture for Fertility
In formal, traditional Chinese medicine, it is believed that infertility may be caused by several different factors including: constitutional weakness, being overworked, excessive physical work (strenuous exercise and sports), excessive sexual activity at an early age, the invasion of a cold, poor nutrition and overall diet, or, a combination of these.
Infertility is defined by the World Health Organization as the inability to produce offspring in a woman who has been trying for two years. The good news is Acupuncture can help.
For women trying to conceive naturally, acupuncture can help regulate menses, increase blood flow to the uterus which allows for a more hospitable environment for implantation, improve sperm count and motility and help relieve stress.
For women trying using ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology) such as IUI, IVF, donor egg, etc. acupuncture can help with the following: regulate hormones, increase ovarian response and function to increase number of follicles and quality of eggs produced, reduce side effects of hormone treatments and increase and strengthen the immune system.
Some researchers believe that acupuncture’s ability to improve blood circulation in the uterus and ovaries, and help to balance reproductive hormones explains why acupuncture for infertility has been so successful.
