Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I have acupuncture if I’m undergoing fertility treatments?

Acupuncture can benefit couples just starting to attempt to conceive, as well as those already undergoing Western fertility treatments like IUI or IVF. Patients usually find acupuncture sessions both soothing and relaxing and a comforting hands-on form of supportive care.

When should fertility acupuncture start?

Ideally, couples should plan ahead and begin treatment approximately three months before trying to conceive naturally or via other methods. With proper patient follow through, acupuncture treatments can improve follicle quality, egg quality, and overall fertility.

How long is a course of fertility acupuncture?

In pregnancy, the cycles and health of the woman must be balanced to support a strong and healthy pregnancy. Because it takes an ovarian follicle approximately 90 days to fully develop, it also takes about three months for significant change to occur in the body.

What about male fertility?

Acupuncture is not just for women seeking to conceive. Men can also receive acupuncture to boost sexual and overall health. According to RESOLVE, the National Infertility Association, up to 40% of infertility issues can be attributed to the male partner. Scientific research shows that acupuncture can significantly improve sperm production and quality, which can also help prevent genetic defects in a fertilized egg.

What other methods do you use for fertility?

A true holistic approach to conception usually includes dietary and lifestyle changes. Chinese herbs may be helpful, though they are optional. As part of an overall plan, our office offers health recommendations such as breathing and relaxation techniques, exercises, and stretching. We welcome all potential parents-to-be to experience to call us for more information.
