Acupuncture, Fertility and Pregnancy
Your practitioner is experienced with treating infertility with acupuncture and is happy to work with you and your physician during this exciting time of your life.
Acupuncture treatment of infertility has been shown to be very successful. Women are often advised to start acupuncture 3 months before they start treatments such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intrauterine insemination (IUI). Medical conditions that affect fertility, including polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), fibroids, endometriosis, and issues with ovarian reserve and sperm quality may also be treated with acupuncture. It may also help relieve some of the side effects (such as bloating and nausea) associated with fertility drugs.
Acupuncture helps tonify and nourish your body during pregnancy, and is used to alleviate fatigue, nausea and heartburn in early pregnancy. Insomnia, constipation, and swelling of hands and legs may be alleviated with acupuncture treatment. During the third trimester of pregnancy, acupuncture helps prepare your body for labor and childbirth.
