Optimize Your Chances of Conceiving and Having a Healthy Baby
Fertility issues can be frustrating. A holistic approach aims to treat the whole body so that you have the best chances of conceiving naturally or with the help of reproductive technology, such as IUI or IVF.
How Can Acupuncture Help?
Whether you’ve just started trying or have moved into IUI or IVF, acupuncture is a great option to increase chances of successful conception. Here’s just a few ways acupuncture helps:
- Regulate the menstrual cycles
- Improve egg or sperm quality
- Improve uterine lining
- Increase blood flow to the reproductive organs
- Reduce stress
- Improve success rates of IUI or IVF
- Decrease chances of miscarriage
What Does The Research Say?
Many studies have shown the impact of acupuncture on fertility, especially that acupuncture increases the success rates of IVF. A well known 2002 study documented pregnancies in 42.5% of patients that received acupuncture in addition to IVF, compared to only 26.3% in patients that received only IVF. Find the full study here.
