Infertility and Acupuncture
Acupuncture regulates the hypothalamus and pituitary glands which can be thrown out of balance due to stress, aging, and other environmental factors inhibiting its ability to function properly. Acupuncture promotes the circulation of blood in the pelvic cavity which improves ovarian function. Acupuncture is beneficial in promoting follicle production, enhancing uterine blood flow, and improving uterine lining thickness. By positively enhancing overall health, acupuncture increases the chances of conception.

Acupuncture is beneficial in treating the following causes of infertility:
Advanced Maternal Age:
Chromosomal problems increase with
advancing maternal age as the egg a
woman conceives with is as old as she
is. Women over 35 will have a
significant decline in the number and
quality of eggs. However, by increasing
blood flow to the uterus through
acupuncture treatments, we may help
you to improve the quality of your eggs.
Acupuncture can also help to improve
ovulation and increase the thickness
of the uterine lining for implantation
of the embryo.
Anovulation is when a woman misses ovulation or stops ovulating. Ovulation, the release of the egg from the ovary, must happen in order to achieve pregnancy. Research shows that acupuncture and herbal medicine can induce ovulation in many patients.
Acupuncture treatments can be especially beneficial for women faced with luteal phase defects, high FSH levels, low estrogen levels, or polycystic ovarian disease. Acupuncture influences the autonomic nervous system and hormonal regulation centers in the brain.
Stress can cause hormonal imbalances that can affect the timing of an egg being released, causing a delay or inhibiting the release. Stress can also reduce the blood flow to your reproductive organs. Acupuncture is very beneficial for regulating stress, thereby increasing circulation to the reproductive organs and regulating hormones efficiently.
Low sperm count, poor sperm motility or morphology can reduce the chances of conception. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can help to enhance sperm motility, improve morphology, increase sperm count and boost testosterone.
Chromosomal abnormalities, illness, problems with the uterus or cervix, advanced maternal age, and hormonal imbalance may be the cause of miscarriage. Acupuncture regulates hormones and optimizes progesterone production which is essential to maintaining the uterine lining. Chinese herbal medicine is also effective for preventing miscarriage and strengthening the uterine lining.
Acupuncture & IVF
Studies have shown that Acupuncture improves pregnancy rates two-fold within a four month treatment period compared to fertility drugs and/or IVF. We help patients choosing to do IVF treatments prepare their bodies for the procedures as well as significantly improve IVF outcomes and minimize side-effects. Acupuncture and/or Chinese herbal medicine is often combined with IVF treatments to significantly boost the chances of conceiving as well as prevent miscarriage.
Benefits of Acupuncture & IVF:
Increases ovarian response
Increases estrogen levels if too low
Enhances follicle/egg quality
Increases follicle/egg quantity
Improves sperm vitality
Relieves side-effects of IVF drugs
Increases endometrium thickness
Increases implantation rate
