Acupuncture for Fertility

Acupuncture may help to relieve the symptoms of many conditions, some of which may compromise fertility, these include

  • Pre menstrual syndrome
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Low sperm count
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Polycystic ovaries
  • Supports you and your partner through IVF treatment on a physical and emotional level.
 There are various reasons why you may be experiencing fertility problems, and your GP will be able to arrange tests to try to find out if there are any medical reasons that you have been unable to conceive.

However, most people recognise the need for both themselves and their partners to be in the best of health both physically and emotionally to increase their chances of a successful pregnancy.

Acupuncture can help both of you maintain a healthy body and mind, and can also offer hope to couples who are experiencing fertility problems, even when the experts have found no medical reason.

I work in conjunction with conventional medicine, to ensure that every aspect of you and your concerns are being dealt with.

I believe that in working in this holistic way, you will feel that you are being proactive in increasing your chances of a successful pregnancy.

Supporting IVF Treatments

Studies show that having acupuncture treatment during IVF can increase your chances of a successful pregnancy.

  • Helps to prepare you and your partner physically and emotionally for the IVF
  • Helps to reduce the side effects you may experience with the IVF drugs
  • Promotes healthy egg development
  • Improves blood flow to the uterus

Recent studies suggest that acupuncture can enhance the outcome of assisted fertility, by providing you and your partner with support during the IVF treatment.

Acupuncture can support you physically by keeping you both in optimum health. Also by supporting you emotionally during what can be a difficult time.

Undergoing a course of IVF can be a stressful time for you both; acupuncture can help your body to physically cope with stress better, by making you feel calmer, and sleep better
