The use of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture has been proven to offer significant benefits in treating infertility. Acupuncture can be used alone or in combination with other traditional reproductive treatments. Studies have shown acupuncture can increase the success rate of IVF, reduce the incidence of miscarriage, stimulate follicle count and size, and increase the endometrial lining of the uterus. Some of, but not all, of the benefits are listed below.

✓ Improve blood flow to the uterus

✓Improve thickness of endometrial lining

✓ Decrease physical response to stress

✓ Balance hormones

✓ Improve ovulatory function and follicle stimulation

✓ Modulate side effects of fertility medications

✓ Improve sperm count, motility, and morphology

✓ Improve the success of IVF and IUI outcomes

Getting acupuncture from an experienced acupuncturist who is a fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine can ensure you are getting acupuncture from a qualified practitioner that can increase your chance of conceiving.
