Acupuncture for Fertility: Increase Your Chance of Conception Without Side Effects
Hong Ma, R. Ac., R.TCMP - Acupuncturist & TCM Practitioner
Acupuncture, frequently combined with herbal medicine, has been used for centuries to treat infertility. Acupuncture and herbs have the potential effect of improved ovarian and follicular function. Additionally, acupuncture can increase blood flow to the endometrium, helping to facilitate a thick, rich lining.
It is becoming increasingly common for women undergoing modern IVF therapy to also have complementary fertility acupuncture treatment at the same time. Studies have shown that besides improving pregnancy rates, fertility acupuncture helps patients to better respond to medication and results in healthier eggs. Fertility acupuncture also makes a woman's uterus more receptive to implantation which is one of the major reasons attributed to these higher rates of IVF success. Many women who have had problems with high FSH levels or who have had a miscarriage are being advised that fertility acupuncture has good potential to solve their fertility problems.
