Acupuncture and Infertility

December 13, 2011

The treatment of infertility with acupuncture and Chinese medicine dates back 2,000 years. These ancient, time-tested techniques improve fertility rates and support a woman’s whole body, unlocking unlimited potential health, healing and childbearing. A landmark study published in the medical journal Fertility & Sterility found that acupuncture dramatically improves the chances of becoming pregnant when used in conjunction with other assisted reproductive techniques. Researchers from Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York reviewed studies and concluded that acupuncture helps to:

  • increase blood flow to the uterus, which improves the chances

  • of an ovum implanting in the uterine wall

  • reduces anxiety, stress, and the hormones that are secreted

  • during stressful situations that can significantly decrease fertility

  • normalize hormone and endocrine systems that regulate

  • ovulation, specifically in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome

  • positively affect the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis,

  • which plays a key role in fertility

  • regulate menstrual cycle

Whether you are aiming for pregnancy naturally or with assistance, acupuncture and Chinese medicine can enhance your fertility.  In addition, acupuncture and herbal medicine can assist with fertility issues in men.
