Acupuncture for Fertility
Acupuncture, herbs, and nutrition have been used for thousands of years to optimize and restore fertility.
We work with couples at every stages of their journey to parenthood. Studies show that acupuncture can increase the chances that assisted reproductive technologies (ART) will result in a live birth by 10 to 15 percent or more.
Whether you are trying to conceive naturally or going through assisted reproductive procedures such as IVF or IUI, the proper utilization of acupuncture, herbs, and nutrition has been clinically proven to significantly increase your chances of a successful pregnancy.
Chinese medicine modalities have been clinically shown to:
- Regulate the menstrual cycle
- Improve egg quality
- Increase blood flow to the uterus and improving the chances of implantation
- Normalize hormone and the endocrine systems that regulate ovulation
- Reduce anxiety and stress that can significantly decrease fertility
Our approach starts with a careful evaluation to uncover any underlying factors that may be preventing you from conceiving or maintaining a pregnancy. We also help you navigate your fertility journey and support you in choosing your best treatment options.
Conditions we treat:
- Unexplained Infertility
- Advanced Maternal Age
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
- Poor Ovarian Reserve
- Elevated FSH
- Poor Egg Quality
- Premature Ovarian Failure
- Recurrent Miscarriage
- Uterine Fibroids
- Luteal Phase Defect
- Thyroid/Autoimmune Issues
For optimal results, start treatments 3 months (or ASAP) before you are trying to conceive, or before your IUI/IVF procedure, especially if there are hormone, autoimmune, advance maternal age or implantation factors.
