Are you trying to get pregnant?
Sick of getting a good night’s sleep, being able to stay in bed all day on a Saturday, and having extra cash to spend on all the things you want? We are here to help! Acupuncture can help optimize your menstrual cycle and improve your chances of conception to help you get what you want, a BABY! Let’s be real, we would do anything for those little bundles of joy – even if it means less sleep.
Acupuncture and fertility
Acupuncture is a gentle approach to assist natural fertility and a great adjunct therapy to IUI and IVF. Acupuncture can help increase fertility by reducing stress, increase blood flow to reproductive organs, balancing the endocrine system, and decreasing inflammation.
Natural conception and fertility
Acupuncture enhances natural fertility by re-establishing the regular rhythm of the menstrual cycle and supporting ovulation. If you have never tried acupuncture, it is extremely relaxing and takes the stress off baby-making, therefore improving results! We can also help you sort out how to chart your menstrual cycle to increase awareness of ovulation and your fertile window.
IUI and acupuncture
We recommend receiving acupuncture to improve the success rate of IUI. Acupuncture can help relax the uterus so it is more receptive to treatment and can help relieve uterine spasms after the procedure. According to this study acupuncture and herbs increased IUI success rate from 39.4% to 65.5%.
IVF and acupuncture
Acupuncture increases the chances of pregnancy when receiving IVF. According to this study, combining IVF with acupuncture shows an increase in the pregnancy rate up to 42.5%. Acupuncture treatment, like with IUI, will help relax the uterus and relieve spasms caused by the procedure, but acupuncture is also important for self care during this time because fertility treatments can be stressful.
Both partners benefit from acupuncture!
It takes 2 to tango! Both you and your partner can benefit from acupuncture. Optimizing sperm count and motility would be the focus of the treatment. Acupuncture can assist with this by improving overall health and wellness, improving circulation, increasing blood flow to reproductive organs, and reducing stress.
