Andrea Schmutz, Acupuncture for Infertility Specialist in Aventura Florida

Unlike many other types of infertility treatments, acupuncture is administered in a calming, relaxing, feng shui atmosphere. Acupuncture is a holistic style of treatment that views a person as a complex whole, rather than focusing on just an organ or system.

Acupuncture addresses the fact that your infertility could stem from any of a variety of issues and strives to put your mind at ease while healing imbalances in your body.

In most cases, acupuncture is combined with herbs and nutritional supplements for complete fertility treatment. Obviously, every patient is different, and requires time to respond to his or her particular regimen.

Typically, four to six menstrual cycles of acupuncture signify enough time for the treatment to work as long as diet and lifestyle changes are made, and acupuncture is performed regularly.

That’s right – four to six menstrual cycles! That is not a long time. And compared to the cost of IVF or other assisted reproductive technologies, acupuncture is much less costly and equally if not more effective. Learn more about Dr. Andrea.

How does Acupuncture for Infertility Work?

Here are three ways acupuncture may work for infertility:

    1. Hormonal Regulation: Acupuncture is believed to have the ability to regulate hormones, which play a crucial role in the reproductive system. By targeting specific acupuncture points, it is thought that acupuncture can help balance hormone levels, such as follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), estrogen, and progesterone. Hormonal imbalances can contribute to issues such as irregular menstrual cycles, anovulation (lack of ovulation), and poor egg quality, and acupuncture may help restore balance and improve fertility.
    2. Increased Blood Flow: Acupuncture has been suggested to improve blood flow to the reproductive organs. By inserting fine needles at specific points along the body, acupuncture may help dilate blood vessels and enhance circulation to the uterus and ovaries. Improved blood flow can promote the delivery of oxygen, nutrients, and hormones to the reproductive organs, potentially enhancing their function and supporting a healthy environment for conception.
    3. Stress Reduction: Infertility can be an emotionally distressing experience, and stress is known to have a negative impact on fertility. Acupuncture is thought to have a calming effect on the nervous system and can help reduce stress and anxiety. By promoting relaxation, acupuncture may indirectly support fertility by reducing the release of stress hormones such as cortisol, which can interfere with reproductive function. Additionally, acupuncture sessions can provide a supportive and nurturing environment for individuals undergoing fertility treatments, offering emotional support during the process.

Male Infertility

For men, acupuncture is used to address low sperm count, motility, and morphology. The method is known to improve the general health of sperm, which are more likely to join with an egg cell when considered “viable” and fully mobile.
