Acupuncture is a treatment of choice for many wanting to conceive.
It is known to enhance the chances of becoming pregnant naturally, or in conjunctions with different forms of assisted reproductive technology (ART), including IUI and IVF.
Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs are used to promote fertility by treating each individual patient with their personal requirements. These requirements depend on any known, or found, factors that may be present, and can be used to:
- Thicken the endometrial lining
- Improve cervical mucous
- Advance egg quality
- Improve sperm parameters
Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine has been used successfully in the prevention of recurrent miscarriage.
Lifestyle advice can also be offered to complement Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine treatments, which will further help reduce the anxiety and stress associated with fertility issues.
