Here at Ripon Acupuncture, I have a special interest and expertise in acupuncture for fertility. I have specific post-graduate training and extensive experience in treating women and men who are having problems with conceiving.
Acupuncture has been positively helping to boost natural and assisted conception in both men and women for many years.
Recent studies have shown that acupuncture significantly reduces stress and anxiety levels, plus there is now a growing body of evidence which supports the ability of acupuncture to increase blood flow to the uterus, balance hormone levels and regulate the menstrual cycle, all of which will help to increase your success of conception.
In a number of recent clinical trials, supporting assisted conception with Acupuncture has been shown to increase the likelihood of pregnancy.
Your Acupuncture treatment works in conjunction with each stage of your IVF, ICSI or IUI treatment to enhance its efficacy and success rate.
Alternatively, Acupuncture can also regulate and improve any menstrual irregularities to achieve a better chance of natural conception.
For men, acupuncture can improve low sperm counts, poor morphology or motility, which can account for around 40% of fertility problems. As it takes between 70-90 days for new sperm to develop, it is important to improve your diet, lifestyle and general health for at least 3 months before being retested.
