Treating Infertility with Acupuncture
Improve Fertility with Acupuncture
While I treat all of the conditions listed in my Acupuncture Services section, I must say that I do emphasize acupuncture for infertility / fertility in my clinic. I love to help a patient who suffers from fertility issues. I work with people who are trying to conceive naturally or who are going through IVF or IUI or frozen embryo transfers or using egg donors.
I do an extensive consult with my fertility patients and I try and find the missing link - that ever elusive factor that is keeping them from getting pregnant. It is oftentimes something very simple. We review everything that we can. Even when we cannot find anything that is obviously causing a problem, acupuncture, by itself, increases a woman's and a man's fertility by removing blockages in their body that are preventing them from being able to conceive. In addition, studies have shown that acupuncture can increase the effectiveness of IUI and IVF treatments 40-60%!
There is nothing more rewarding than getting a card in the mail with a photo of my patient's newborn baby after I have helped them to increase their chances of conceiving naturally or as an adjunct to IUI or IVF procedures!
