If getting pregnant has been a challenge for you and your partner, you are not alone. Sixteen percent of Canadian couples are considered infertile. Fertility problems are usually diagnosed after a couple has been unsuccessful after a year of trying to get pregnant.
Common diagnoses that are treatable with acupuncture include endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, blocked fallopian tube(s), frequent miscarriage, fibroids, irregular menstruation, anovulation and even unexplained infertility.
Acupuncture can increase fertility by reducing stress, increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs and balancing the endocrine system. Acupuncture is a safe, painless treatment that has no side effects and can be administered even if the patient is on fertility medication. Acupuncture can actually increase in-vitro fertilization success rates by 42% and can also address male infertility by improving sperm count and motility.
Whether you wish to conceive naturally or via reproductive assistance, acupuncture can greatly help you achieve your dream of becoming a parent.
