Infertility Treatment with Acupuncture

Fertility challenges are complicated and can originate in both men and women. If you feel like you’ve tried everything, and it’s just not working, consider coming to our center in Aventura Florida and exploring the benefits of acupuncture. Acupuncture treatment for infertility is our specialty! Whether it is for IVF Support or a strictly natural approach, we can help.

Unlike many other types of infertility treatments, acupuncture is administered in a calming, relaxing feng shui atmosphere. Acupuncture is a core treatment modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which views patients as whole people, rather than focusing on just an organ or system. Acupuncture addresses the fact that your infertility could stem from any of a variety of things, 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.

Common Fertility Challenges 

Just about any kind of fertility challenge may respond to acupuncture, including endometriosis, uterine fibroids and PCOS to name a few. Even patients with blocked fallopian tubes and adhesions from PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease) may benefit from acupuncture treatment.

Acupuncture is sometimes used as a preventive measure against miscarriage in the first trimester. Women with a history of miscarriage may want to explore acupuncture as a calm and gentle option. Learn more about pregnancy support.

Often, infertility is directly linked to high levels of stress and stress hormones. Acupuncture is used to treat non-pregnancy related stress, and can be administered similarly in the context of pregnancy. Hormone balance is the goal with this treatment, though the soothing nature of the approach can also help with general stress alleviation.

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 “normal” and fully mobile.
