The Top Five Ways Acupuncture Helps You to Conceive

At Woodland Hills Acupuncture, we specialize in helping women conceive, particularly those over the age of 35. Deborah Warshauer is a Fellow of the Acupuncture Board of Reproductive Medicine, and is able to provides expert care that few acupuncturists can offer.

Here are Deborah’s list of top five ways acupuncture can help you on your journey to parenthood.

1. Regulating Hormones

Hormonal imbalances can significantly impact your ability to conceive. Acupuncture helps to regulate hormones by stimulating specific points on the body, promoting a balance in the endocrine system. This regulation is crucial for women facing conditions such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), elevated FSH, and diminished ovarian reserve. By promoting hormonal balance, acupuncture enhances the likelihood of ovulation and conception.pregnant women

2. Improving Blood Flow to the Uterus and Ovaries

Adequate blood flow to the reproductive organs is essential for fertility. Acupuncture can increase blood circulation to the uterus and ovaries, creating a more favorable environment for embryo implantation. This improved circulation helps in treating conditions like amenorrhea, oligomenorrhea, and dysmenorrhea, which can hinder conception.

3. Reducing Stress and Anxiety

Stress is a common barrier to conception. Acupuncture is renowned for its ability to reduce stress and anxiety, which can negatively impact fertility. By promoting relaxation and reducing cortisol levels, acupuncture creates a more conducive environment for conception. This is especially beneficial for women experiencing recurrent pregnancy loss or those dealing with the emotional strain of infertility treatments.

4. Enhancing the Effectiveness of Assisted Reproductive Techniques

For women undergoing assisted reproductive techniques (ART) such as IVF or IUI, acupuncture can significantly enhance the success rates. Studies have shown that acupuncture performed before and after embryo transfer increases the chances of successful implantation. At Woodland Hills Acupuncture, our expertise in reproductive acupuncture can provide the support you need during these critical phases.

5. Addressing Male Factor Infertility

Infertility is not solely a female issue; male factor infertility accounts for a significant percentage of infertility cases. Acupuncture can improve sperm quality, motility, and count, thereby enhancing the overall fertility of the couple. By addressing both partners’ health, we increase the chances of successful conception.
