A healthy lifestyle consisting of a good diet, adequate sleep and stress management are all important when it comes to fertility and adding acupuncture to the mix can increase your chances of becoming pregnant. It is known to increase the rate of conception, especially when combined with other treatments. It is important to remember that infertility is a fairly common issue that a lot of couples struggle with, so you are not alone and there are a number of experienced practitioners that can help.
Acupuncture, in particular, can help by addressing the problems that directly affect fertility like an under or over functioning thyroid, for example. It can also increase the patient’s blood flow to the endometrium to help facilitate a thicker lining that is richer. In many cases, acupuncture is highly effective because it deals with a lot of issues related to fertility; however, you must keep in mind that this is not a quick fix and time is required in order for the treatment to be effective. This type of treatment is generally a process when it comes to a woman’s fertility journey and you need to be prepared to dedicate your time to it. It is recommended that you try acupuncture for at least three months before deciding whether or not this treatment is right for you and acupuncturists will develop individual treatment plans based on your needs.
Acupuncture can help reduce stress, increase blood flow to the reproductive system, boost your immune system, increase sperm count and increase the chances of IVF. These are just a few of the benefits this treatment provides and there are many more. It can help promote a state of well-being and stress relief and can regulate your hormones and painful menstruation.
Chinese herbal medicine can also be used to help balance your hormones while addressing changes and promoting a sense of well-being. This type of treatment can also target stress relief, which is very important because stress often has a very negative impact on one’s fertility. Staying calm and positive throughout the process is very important and Chinese medicine can help in this regard. Extreme stress can cause irregular cycles and other issues, which can impact fertility for both women and men.
