Double Your Chances – Acupuncture and Infertility

One of the most devastating pieces of information a young woman can hear is that she has infertility related problems. She usually finds this out because she has gone to a doctor to find out why she cannot get pregnant. Wanting to be a mother is one of the most natural of instincts, and it rips your insides right out to find out that you are infertile. There are a variety of reasons for infertility, one of the more predominate ones is poly-cystic ovary syndrome. Other causes are tubal adhesion’s due to pelvic inflammatory disease or endometriosis.There are many, many other causes as well. It is pretty much an individual cause, and the treatments for same are also individual.

There are some areas of enhancement when Acupuncture and Infertility treatments are used in tandem. The causes listed above are not likely to be helped by acupuncture, but many others are. This is according to the American Pregnancy Association. They write that acupuncture can increase blood flow to the endometrium, helping to form a thick rich lining. They highly recommend the use of acupuncture, beginning three to four months before insemination. It is their belief that an interdisciplinary approach of acupuncture + herbal medicine + traditional medical interventions provides the hopeful parents the best chance of conceiving and carrying to full term. It has been recommended that the acupuncture treatments go into the twelth week of pregnancy to lessen the chance of a miscarriage.

Acupuncture and Infertility is well supported by other medical professionals as well. The Pacific Wellness Center believes that acupuncture can increase the over all health of women. That can be good for all women. They also noted that acupuncture can slow down biological aging, so that women who are in their forties are standing a much better chance of having successful infertility treatments because they are healthier than they normally would be.

The Akuklinik Infertility Services in Toronto believes in a combination of Chinese medicine with other traditions of medicine. They claim the chance of success is 65% when Acupuncture and Infertility treatments are combined. So many positive things have been said over the generations about acupuncture, it sure seems worth a try.
