HOW ACUPUNCTURE HELPS FERTILITY

Scientists discovered it improves the blood flow to uterus and ovaries. No matter the diagnosis, you are bound to benefit from this.

Increased blood flow to the follicles results in healthier eggs and embryos. Furthermore, acupuncture has been shown to improve the quality of follicular fluid.

A study in 2014 has shown that this natural treatment helps your uterus to produce a three-layered uterine lining. This is the most fertile lining associated with better chances to conceive.

As a specialist at one of IVF clinics in Auckland worded it, acupuncture may help to perfect your uterine lining.

Based on your diagnosis, menstrual cycle, your reproductive health history, and other factors we individualise the treatment to optimise your fertility naturally.

And even if your doctor or specialist could not find anything wrong, or you are diagnosed with unexplained infertility we may be able to help you improve your chances to conceive.

We individualise your treatment utilising acupuncture protocols shown to reduce time to pregnancy.

The World Health Organisation on the use of acupuncture for infertility:

“Acupuncture was reported to be effective in the treatment of female anovular infertility…”

“Acupuncture is worth trying in the treatment of female infertility due to inflammatory obstruction of the fallopian tubes, where it seems to be superior to conventional therapy”

The above excerpt is from a book published by the WHO in 2002. There has been plentiful new research on acupuncture and infertility published since then. And its use in the treatment of infertility is expanding study by study.

Why try acupuncture first?

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 this natural therapy early on, as a first-line treatment before the referral to the specialist for IVF, IUI and pharmacological treatments. 

And this makes sense. This time-tested treatment 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, these natural alternatives are normally just a fraction of the cost of IVF.

Acupuncture for fertility is:

  • Safe
  • Effective
  • Cost-effective
  • Minimally invasive when compared to in vitro fertilisation or intrauterine insemination

Acupuncture and IVF

Acupuncture can play an important role when you’re trying to conceive with In Vitro Fertilisation. It has been shown to double the IVF success rates, reduce the risk of miscarriage in some studies.

What’s the most appropriate treatment in your situation?

With some reproductive disorders, acupuncture and herbs alone will not suffice. Depending on your situation, combining acupuncture with  IVF, IUI, reproductive drugs or other treatment may be the quickest way to conceive. The integration of these treatments will get you to your goal of getting a baby quicker and will reduce the side effects of Western medical treatment to a certain extent.

For example, this natural treatment significantly increased pregnancy rates in women undergoing in vitro fertilisation (IVF) in a German study in 2002. There were other studies reproducing similar results. Acupuncture was also helpful to reduce certain risks associated with IVF. It was shown to reduce the risk of miscarriages, tubular/ectopic pregnancies, increased live birth rate of IVF.  Read more about IVF and acupuncture.
