The benefits of acupuncture seem endless with the positive ways it has improved or completely transformed people's lives. Acupuncture can help with so much more than body aches and pains. Many people – both men and women – turn to acupuncture to help with fertility. While there isn't any exact scientific research or findings that prove a direct correlation between acupuncture increasing fertility rates or the probability of getting pregnant, there are several ways that acupuncture can help assist you and your partner with the entire process, from getting pregnant to during pregnancy and after.
How Acupuncture Can Help With Fertility
Acupuncture also helps increase blood flow and overall blood circulation throughout the body. Increased, healthy blood flow within the body not only improves the quality of eggs for women by ensuring healthy blood flow to the ovaries but also improves sperm count and mobility for men, both of which are vital for a successful conception. Improving blood flow also helps women with irregular menstrual cycles, making it difficult to plan the appropriate time for conception.
Many women also suffer from chronic, painful conditions that may inhibit fertility, such as endometriosis or PCOS. By turning to acupuncture, many people have felt tremendous relief from the symptoms of these conditions and have seen more success in their fertility.
Acupuncture During Fertility Treatments
Undergoing fertility treatments, while extremely helpful in increasing the chances of getting pregnant, can be very stressful for both partners. One of the most popular reasons people actively seek acupuncture is to relieve stress and bodily pain. These things can also inhibit someone from becoming pregnant. Turning to acupuncture to help reduce both conditions can help promote healthy blood flow, reduce anxiety levels, and increase hormones.
Some people may also find certain fertility treatments painful and suffer side effects from them. Our team can discuss what you may be experiencing and provide the appropriate acupuncture to help alleviate those symptoms so that you have a much more comfortable and joyous fertility journey. While acupuncture may not be a direct fertility treatment, it can certainly help increase its effectiveness by promoting the body's natural state of well-being.
