Acupuncture perfects the uterine lining
It improves the chances of triple-line pattern uterine lining. This kind of lining is much preferred when you’re trying to conceive, as it gives you a higher chance of successful pregnancy.
Improves blood supply
Acupuncture improves blood supply to the uterine lining. Previously we already had studies showing improved blood flow to uterus and ovaries. This study has shown that even uterine vascularisation has improved following 3 months of treatment. Uterine blood flow is essential for conception.
Increases uterine receptivity
This time-tested therapy also improves uterine receptivity. A protein HOXA10 has been measured in the uterine lining. HOXA10 has an important function in regulating endometrial development during the menstrual cycle and in establishing conditions necessary for implantation of an embryo. Hoxa10 expression is lower in women with endometriosis, PCOS and hydrosalpinx.
Regulates sugar levels
Optimises ovarian volume and AMH
Acupuncture benefits PCOS patients by normalising ovarian volume and AMH.
How much acupuncture does one need to have to improve fertility? One session can already make a difference, but to see measurable improvements to your fertility, you need to commit to at least 18 sessions or three months of treatment.
A mini-book “Must-Ask Questions for IVF Newbies” was recommended by one of my patients. This little gem is written by a patient who took an active role in her treatment for others. It will answer many of your questions and give you ideas about the questions you need to ask your doctor.
Your reproductive endocrinologist will be able to do more for you if you take an active role in your treatment. This book is about your first step of taking a seat of a co-pilot rather than a passenger in your fertility journey.
The “Must-Ask Questions for IVF Newbies” for your PC or a multimedia tablet is available for $2.99 from Amazon.
