Acupuncture can be beneficial in the treatment of many infertility-related conditions including: Uterine fibroids, hormonal imbalance, amenorrhea, recurrent miscarriage, and endometriosis. Acupuncture improves ovarian function by regulating the endocrine system, which aids in stabilizing hormone levels.
When utilized as a complementary infertility therapy, acupuncture can aid in promoting relaxation during IVF treatment. Benefits of acupuncture for the treatment of infertility:
- Reduces stress levels.
- Reharmonizes sleep patterns.
- Increases energy.
- Enhances overall mind/body health.
Reproductive health can be benefited in many ways with acupuncture. By balancing hormone levels, therapy can regulate menstruation and ovulation. Follicle production is increased with acupuncture, which stimulates blood flow to the ovaries.
Using acupuncture for fertility purposes increases blood flow to the uterus, resulting in thickening of the endometrial lining, which is necessary for implantation. When utilized as a primary therapy, acupuncture can increase egg production naturally for women who choose not to take fertility medications. Your acupuncture physician may recommend Chinese herbal formulas as a supplement.
