Throughout your pregnancy, you may experience a variety of symptoms like nausea, backpain, swelling, irritability to name a few, that can be relieved through Chinese Medicine.
Scientific research studies have shown that acupuncture can improve fertility and increase the success of IVF. Many fertility centers now recommend combining acupuncture with western fertility treatments.
Acupuncture can increase fertility by reducing stress, increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs and balancing the endocrine system, according to medical research. The goal of an infertility treatment from a Chinese Medicine perspective is not just to get pregnant, but to stay pregnant and to have a healthy baby.
Benefits of Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine on Fertility include:
- Regulate menstruation
- Balance hormones
- Increase blood flow to the uterus and ovaries
- Improve the lining of the uterus
- Regulate fertility hormones which may improve the quantity and quality of follicles
- Minimize IVF and medication symptoms
- Reduce stress pre- and post- transfer for IVF cycles
- Decrease chance of miscarriage and increase chance of implant and full-term birth
- Improve male factor – volume, motility and morphology
Preparing for IUI and IVF:
Pre and during IUI and IVF cycle, acupuncture can provide better blood flow to the ovaries and uterus, creating a stronger chance for an egg to be implanted, nourished and carried to term. A recent study reports, “When combining IUI with TCM treatments, 65.5 percent of the test group was able to conceive, compared with 39.4 percent of the control group, who received no herbal or acupuncture therapy.” Acupuncture infertility treatment has almost no side effects while performing the same function as the drugs do: stimulating the endocrine system and its hormones and treating the root cause of female infertility as well as male infertility.
