How can an acupuncture specialist help with fertility issues?

Acupuncture & stress reduction

It’s well known that stress can negatively impact fertility. The diagnosis of “unexplained infertility” alone can activate the stress response and impair the reproductive system. Stress can lead to irregular periods, delayed ovulation, and altered hormone levels. In men, it can lead to a decrease in sperm count. Indeed, stress can present a frustrating cycle: stress can impair fertility, and impaired fertility can increase stress.

Acupuncture is a wonderful way to reduce stress. Acupuncture causes the release of endorphins. These endorphins do two primary things: increase the sense of pleasure and relaxation, and decrease the sense of stress and pain.

Balance is the key

A significant number of women and men experience infertility because of an imbalance, whether hormonal or psychological. Through stimulation of strategic points on your body, acupuncture helps you:

  • Maintain hormonal balance
  • Keep the menstrual cycle in check
  • Improve blood flow to the reproductive organs
  • Improve pregnancy rates with in vitro fertilization (IVF): 
  • Increase sperm count and motility

Frequently Asked Questions

When should you get acupuncture for fertility?

Acupuncture is often recommended three months before fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intrauterine insemination (IUI).

Our certified acupuncture specialists in Whittier provide treatments that regulate stress, release endorphins, and balance hormones. These treatments involve the gentle insertion of ultra-thin needles along key energy pathways that influence hormones, reproductive organs, and inflammation. For more info, feel free to contact us!

How does acupuncture improve blood flow and egg quality?

Higher quality eggs are associated with efficient nutrient-rich blood flow. Fertility acupuncture treatments increase blood flow to the uterus and ovaries by relaxing the blood vessel walls and decreasing inflammation.

If blood flow is compromised, follicles and eggs will be deprived of nutrients and oxygen, which may negatively impact the quality of eggs during assisted fertility treatments in Whittier.

What type of patients do you typically see?

We treat both men and women of all reproductive ages and various concerns such as unexplained infertility, hormone imbalance, and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).

Our fertility acupuncturists often combine acupuncture with herbal remedies to effectively treat conditions such as elevated follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), repeated miscarriages, estrogen dominance, premenstrual syndrome, hyperprolactinemia, thyroid disorders, and low sperm count or low testosterone in men.

How often do I need to come?

Fertility acupuncture treatment plans vary as much as our Whittier patients. We’ll develop a personalized program that meets the individual needs of each patient during our initial consultation.

Due to the cumulative nature of acupuncture, it is important to establish a solid foundation, then modify it as necessary.
