Acupuncture and Infertility

Current statistics indicate that one in five couples over the age of 30 have difficulty conceiving after one year of trying.

Recent research indicates that regular acupuncture treatment enhances positive fertility outcomes. Fertility clinics recommend acupuncture during fertility cycles and Fionnuala sees both women and men during this time.

Acupuncture can help create a positive outcome by assisting in the following ways:

  • Regulate the menstrual cycle
  • Normalise hormone and endocrine systems
  • Improve blood flow to the uterus
  • Improve sperm count and motility
  • Increase the chance of pregnancy for women undergoing in vitro fertilisation (IVF)
  • Decrease chances of miscarriage
  • Reduce stress and anxiety associated with infertility

Acupuncture and Oriental medicine have a proven record in providing a safe, effective and often positive solution to these difficulties.
