Acupuncture is an age-old alternative medical technique used around the world. Originating in China, Acupuncture can help resolve several health issues.

Recently, several studies indicate that Acupuncture can help address a wide range of fertility issues. Although it isn’t certain whether Acupuncture can enhance fertility, some independent studies show promising results.

In fact, a study from Tel Aviv University states that Acupuncture boosts conception rates by 26% when combined with modern fertility treatments, such as IUI.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of tiny metal needles into the skin. Acupuncturists insert these needles into specific pressure points to reduce stress and anxiety. It helps release the ‘feel good chemicals’ known as endorphins throughout the body, which makes infertile individuals feel relaxed during treatment.

Besides stress reduction, Acupuncture enhances blood flow to the reproductive organs. It helps boosts blood flow and oxygen to the uterus. Improved blood flow to the uterus can help a better chance of embryo implantation in IVF. It also helps balance the endocrine system.

At Brisbane Livewell Clinic, we believe that Acupuncture can help with an array of common fertility problems, including:

  • Increasing blood flow to the uterus
  • Normalisation of ovulation
  • Development of healthy and mature eggs
  • Stress and anxiety reduction among infertile individuals
  • Regulating menstrual cycles
  • Improving sperm concentration, volume and motility

Acupuncture and fertility treatments, such as TCM should be used together to enhance the chances of having a healthy baby. TCM can treat several fertility issues, including (but not limited to):

  • Menstrual irregularities
  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Amenorrhe
  • Fallopian tube blockage
  • Thyroid problem
  • Autoimmune conditions

Acupuncture is not a new alternative treatment. It has been tried, tested and is used all over the world. Many medical practitioners also support it.
