More and more often, couples who are trying to get pregnant are hearing something surprising… try
Who would think that these tiny little needles could do anything to help couples with
If you are wondering how Acupuncture can help you and you don’t want to take my word
for it, here’s what some real smart people at Cornell Medical Center in New York have proven
Acupuncture can do…
· Increases blood flow to the uterus, which improves the chances of an ovum implanting on the
· Reduces anxiety, stress and the hormones that are secreted during stressful situations that can
significantly decrease fertility
· Normalize hormone and endocrine systems that regulate ovulation
· Positively affect the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, which plays a key role in fertility
· Regulates the menstrual cycle
So there you go, the proof is in the pudding. The next big question is when should you think about
trying Acupuncture? Well, that part is up to you… we’ve helped couples at just about every stage of the pregnancy process.
· Are you thinking about starting to try to get pregnant soon? Use acupuncture to get your cycles
regulated, get your stress levels down and start getting your body as healthy as it can be so you
can get pregnant, feel great and carry a healthy baby to term.
· Have you been trying to get pregnant for a while and haven’t had any luck yet? Well, most OB’s
and Reproductive doctors won’t get involved until you have been trying for at least a year.
Acupuncture can be a great way to bring in some support and identify the issues that could be
getting in the way of becoming pregnant.
· Have you received a diagnosis of PCOS, endometriosis, reduced ovarian reserve, reduced sperm
function/counts or the dreaded “unexplained infertility”? Acupuncture has been shown in
several studies to have positive impacts on all of these things. Incorporate acupuncture into the
other things you are doing with your doctor to give your body every chance to correct these
issues and boost your fertility!
· Are you doing ART? Doing acupuncture during IUI or IVF cycles is becoming standard practice at
many fertility clinics so if you’re clinic doesn’t have someone on staff then take the time to find
an Acupuncturist in your area that specializes in fertility… and get started!
Alright, if this hasn’t convinced you to use Acupuncture to benefit your fertility… then I don’t know what
will. So find someone who specializes in fertility, get over the idea of needles (they are NO big deal) and
let the poking and baby making begin!!!
