Acupuncture is increasingly being utilised as the treatment modality of choice to support men and women who are experiencing fertility issues. It is estimated that as many as twelve percent of couples experience difficulties in conception which in turn generates a significant amount of psycho emotional stress. This further negatively affects hormone levels creating a downward spiral and can make conception increasingly difficult.
There is now a growing evidence base to suggest acupuncture can significantly increase men’s fertility and women's likelihood of becoming pregnant.
A traditional acupuncture fertility treatment will take into account your full medical history, including menstrual cycle and lifestyle factors before deciding on the best course of treatment.
Acupuncture is thought to help to boost fertility in three main ways:
Regulating and normalising hormone function and optimising the menstrual cycle. PICOS and endometriosis have also been shown to improve significantly with regular acupuncture treatment.
Increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs and tissues to help improve and enhance the chances of conception.
Relaxation and general well being is essential for an optimal chance of conception. Chronic stress negatively affects hormone levels, digestion, detoxification and blood circulation. Traditional acupuncture treatment can significantly assist in easing the balance back into a healthy state favourable to conception.
