Specialising in reproductive acupuncture we mostly care for patients who already have a diagnosis of infertility. Some of them have spent years trying various treatments that failed.
More women are choosing acupuncture early on, as a first-line treatment before the referral to the specialist for IVF, IUI and pharmacological treatments.
And this makes sense. Acupuncture may help you conceive naturally. And should you not be able to, it is likely you will need fewer invasive treatments and get to your goal sooner. Consider starting this natural treatment as soon as you start your folic acid.
To summarise, acupuncture and herbs are effective and safe. It’s a smart choice to try first, so hopefully you will not need more invasive treatments such as IVF, IUI and pharmaceutical treatments. Not to mention, acupuncture and herbs are normally just a fraction of the cost of IVF.
