Acupuncture Treatment for Infertility

Acupuncture can be beneficial to your body, and it is true! Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine-based approach in which fine needles are inserted into the skin at specific points throughout the body. Our body channels or 12 significant meridians (pathways) carry vital energy or “qi” (pronounced chee). Qi must flow freely to keep the body in a good state of health.

When you are stressed, you will feel exhausted and low in energy. Acupuncture helps restore your energy and makes you relax. In a way, it reenergizes the body by inserting needles at specific energy points. It is a natural way to regain energy without using drugs and medicines. It can also be combined with other treatments.

Research suggests that it can help relieve the pain and be used for a wide range of other conditions. It helps in stress, neck and back pain, headache, migraine, high and low blood pressure, morning sickness, tennis elbow, sprain, dental pain, infertility, and more.

Infertility is when you have trouble getting pregnant or staying pregnant. It can happen to people irrespective of their gender and have many causes. It is not easy for some people to get pregnant. People trying for over a year and still having difficulty or miscarriages are diagnosed as infertile. It can happen to anyone irrespective of their gender and is not solely concerned to a woman. Both people are tested for infertility, which helps in the treatment.

  • Studies show that acupuncture as a treatment for infertility shows great results in both men and women. Acupuncture may help in the following ways:
  • Increases blood flow to the uterus, which improves the chances of an embryo implanting on the uterine wall.
  • Reduces anxiety and stress. The hormones that are secreted during stressful situations can significantly decrease fertility.
  • Normalizes hormone and endocrine systems that regulate ovulation, especially in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome.
  • Positively affects the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, which plays a crucial role in fertility.
  • Acupuncture is a safe procedure and works when the fine thin needles are placed accurately into the body. It has a few side effects, such as bruising, soreness, fatigue, or more. The experience often varies from person to person; some may feel the needles are painful while others don’t. But in the end, the procedure is relaxing and may help you overall.
