In this post in my Making Babies series, I talk about how Acupuncture is effectively used to enhance fertility for couples who are trying to conceive.
One of the most common reasons patients come in for Acupuncture treatments is to enhance their fertility, below is a great video summarizing why 1 in 4 couples seek Acupuncture to help them conceive:
Generally speaking it takes most of my patients about 3-5 months of regular acupuncture treatments, combined with following at home fertility advice, to get pregnant.
The goal of my fertility treatments is not just to help a woman become pregnant, but to enhance her overall health so she has a healthy, full term baby. Among many other health benefits, acupuncture can provide better blood flow to the ovaries and uterus, creating stronger nourishment to these areas as well as helping to regulate hormones, menstrual cycles and calm the mind and body to optimize fertility.
Acupuncture can also treat men for increased virility.
Sometimes people seek out Western Medicine to help conceive if they believe they have a more complicated issue or it has been over a year of actively trying to have a baby with no luck. Acupuncture can be a great adjunct to these more invasive procedures and has been proven to help increase chances of fertilization with things like IVF.
