Both acupuncture and Chinese Herbal medicine have been used for centuries to improve female and male fertility ; many scientific studies are being conducted, demonstrating its effectiveness both on it’s own and in conjunction with conventional medicine.Over my 40 years of practice, I have developed many skills for helping each individual patient with their needs and I am able to create a very personalised plan to enhance fertility, working alongside conventional medicine.
For women, the most common condition that interfere with fertility are: amenorrhea endometriosis irregular menstruation ovarian cysts polycystic ovarian syndrome (pcos) decreased ovarian reserve elevated fsh Acupuncture and herbal medicine can improve these conditions very effectively. Ivf support: many clinical trials have demonstrated the effectiveness of acupuncture used in conjunction with ivf; in some case a 100% increase in success rate with acupuncture vs. without. acupuncture increase success rates of IVF cycles by boosting blood flow to the reproductive system during the stimulation phase of ivf and by improving the effectiveness of the drugs given. it also relaxes the uterus and reduces uterine spasm after embryo transfer. acupuncture also alleviate stress, calms anxiety, and reduce with side effects of the fertility medications.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can also help with: iui support luteal phase failure recurrent miscarriage stress related hormone imbalance unexplained infertility
For men: low sperm count and poor sperm quality account for about 50% of infertility in couples. Fertility acupuncture has been shown in recent studies to help improve sperm count, motility, and morphology, fragmentation, as well as correcting some immune factors such as anti-sperm antibodies that can interfere with conception. Treatments that affect sperm quality in both Chinese medicine and Western medicine can take a minimum of 3 months, so it is best to start as soon as possible.
