Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine can improve fertility

At Mont Albert Acupuncture we can help couples optimise their health to prepare for pregnancy as well as supporting couples who have been trying unsuccessfully to conceive for some time. 

Fertility is an area where acupuncture and Chinese Herbal medicine can be used very successfully to restore the natural balance of the body. For some women, there is only a slight imbalance of the reproductive system and often by regulating the hormones and the menstrual cycle with acupuncture and herbs, making dietary changes and addressing sleep and other lifestyle issues, fertility can be restored.

How does Chinese medicine improve fertility

Traditional Chinese medicine using Acupuncture and Herbal medicine has a very long history of treating women with fertility issues. Over 2000 years in fact!

However modern scientific research is beginning to confirm what Chinese medicine practitioners have always known.

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal medicine can:

  • Improve ovarian function
  • Regulate reproductive hormones
  • Increase blood flow to the uterus
  • Increase the thickness of the uterine lining to assist implantation
  • Regulate the immune system
  • Improve relaxation and sleep
  • Reduce stress

Acupuncture can increase pregnancy rates of couples using IVF

In February 2008, the British Medical Journal published a systematic review of the results of seven trials investigating the effects of acupuncture on the outcome of IVF treatment. It was concluded that acupuncture can increase the chances of pregnancy by 65%.
