Infertility is defined as not being able to get pregnant despite having frequent, unprotected sex for at least a year. Ten to 15 percent of couples in the United States are infertile. Infertility may be due to a single cause in either you or your partner, or a combination of factors that may prevent a pregnancy from occurring or continuing. Fortunately, there are many safe and effective therapies for overcoming infertility including acupuncture and herbal medicine treatment. These treatments significantly improve the chances of becoming pregnant.

Benefits of Acupuncture and herbal medicine treatment:

  • Regulate menstrual cycle.
  • Invigorate sperm. Enhance a man’s sperm count and motility.
  • Enhance general health.
  • Reduce stress, control anxiety, enhance sleep and increase energy level.
  • Balance endocrine system.
  • Improve blood flow in pelvic cavity.
  • Increase the chance of pregnancy for women undergoing in-vitro fertilization (IVF).

Acupuncture and Herbal medicine, used in the treatment of infertility, minimizes undesired side effects and accumulated toxicity from invasive procedures and drug therapies. Acupuncture and herbal medicine is recommended prior to IVF, GIFT/ZIFT, ICSI, and TET procedures since they can strengthen uterus and balance endocrine system leading to higher implantation rate and more successful results.

Fertility treatments may vary from individual to individual, but on the average, an acupuncturist will see you for at least three consecutive cycles (twelve weeks). Your treatments will begin with a comprehensive consultation with your practitioner in which you will discuss details of your menstrual cycle, medical history, lifestyle, nutrition and exercise habits. Treatment will usually include acupuncture, customized herbal therapy, stress reduction and a reasonable diet. Give the treatment six to nine months before evaluating results.
