How Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine Can Help In Fertility

Within traditional Chinese medicine, one of acupuncture’s many applications is in treating infertility. Acupuncture in this context is designed to:

  1. Increase blood flow to the reproductive organs.
  2. Regulate period cycles.
  3. Decrease stress levels.
  4. Improve egg and uterine qualities.
  5. Improve ovulation cycles in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which makes pregnancy difficult.
  6. Balance hormone levels.

Acupuncture and the Treatment of Infertility

Treatments first used as far back as 200 A.D. are still just as effective today. Acupuncture works in treating infertility by helping to regulate the flow of qi, which, according to TCM, is the cause of bodily problems if it’s imbalanced. Herbal medicines are commonly used in conjunction with acupuncture for infertility alongside diet regulations, lifestyle changes, and massage.

Modern science itself has proven acupuncture works, finding that the practice may help improve ovulation via modulating certain areas of the nervous system and the body’s hormonal processes alongside the ovarian blood flow and the body’s metabolism.

How Does Acupuncture Improve Fertility?

Acupuncture works to improve your fertility chances in a variety of ways, such as:

  1. Blood flow increases to target specific areas, like the reproductive organs during fertility treatments. This improves the thickness of the endometrium and provides better chances of egg implantation.
  2. Balancing hormones to standard conception levels.
  3. Regulating menstruation and the ovulation cycle.
  4. Reducing stress hormones, which can impede pregnancy chances.
  5. Relaxing sympathetic nerve systems.
  6. Improving the immune system for a safe, easy conception.
  7. Reducing miscarriage chances by reducing pre-labor contractions.

Frequently Asked Questions of TCM Fertility Clinic

What are the diagnosis of fertility in Chinese Medicine?

Chinese Medicine believes if one’s liver has a sufficiency of health blood and kidney has enough material and energy to support, conceiving will not be a problem. In contrast, if there is stagnated blood and insufficient essence, Uterus issue, follicles tube swollen, unbalanced hormones, will happen of high possibility.

Taking uterus fibroid and hydrosalpinx  for example, even they are totally different in the view of contemporary medicine, but we only consider what triggers the blood stasis in uterus and follicle tubes. There are the most common mechanisms giving rise to or aggravating blood stasis.:

  1. The patient may have long-term Qi and Blood deficiency, the weaker blood flow is, the more stagnant blood in the reproductive system, or other body systems. 
  2. Uterus cold caused by raw food diet habit, leads to  constrict the blood flow in this essential organ. 
  3. Even more,  blood heat, which is usually generated from emotional problems, condenses the density of blood to make it sticky and unsmooth.


Can I  only take Acupuncture with no herbal treatment?

Herb remedies are the real essence of Chinese Medicine. Without herbs, the effectiveness and beauty of Chinese Medicine will be reduced by 80%.

Unfortunately, Chinese medicine has been divided into two parts to treat any illness in many places in the world, which is far away from the original intention of ancient Chinese medicine. As Chinese offspring, we have the responsibility to fulfill the obligation to our legacy. 

Among the practitioners who have deep understanding of Chinese Medicine and fertility, we always recommend patients to apply herbs and acupuncture together, to boost energy and remove waste.
