Infertility can be frustrating at best and heart-breaking at worst. Our fertility patients are typically young women who need a little help getting pregnant; either via stress reduction or balancing hormones. We also have patients who are worried about their pregnancy. They need a good ear, the wisdom that a life experience brings, as well as the systemic calm that acupuncture has on the nervous system.
We find the reduction in stress, new-found hope and broader perspective makes the all the difference in the quality of a woman’s pregnancy.
Acupuncture and IVF
We also see women who have already started on the IVF or IUI track and understand how much more effective they are when done in conjunction with acupuncture. For those that may not know, here is a study that looks at the “Influence of acupuncture on the pregnancy rate in patients who undergo assisted reproduction therapy (ART). In short, it concludes that “Acupuncture seems to be a useful tool for improving pregnancy rate after ART .”
