Fertility Q & A

Can I increase my fertility naturally?

For many couples struggling to get pregnant, treatments like in vitro fertilization (IVF) don’t work, need a boost to work, or aren’t feasible. 

If you’re interested in natural, economical, and noninvasive ways to increase your chances of getting pregnant, you have a number of options, including acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.

You can use these treatments instead of Western treatment, or in conjunction with Western treatment, to improve your treatment’s efficacy and increase your chances of pregnancy.

How can acupuncture increase my fertility?

Acupuncture can increase your fertility in a number of different ways. First, it helps your body function more efficiently. This efficiency extends to all your organs, including your reproductive ones. 

Acupuncture also helps fertility by:

  • Balancing hormones
  • Increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs
  • Relieving stress 

Acupuncture can also increase sperm production in men and stimulate egg production in women. It does this in a number of ways, including by:

  • Increasing the production of endorphins, which regulate the menstrual cycle
  • Impacting the pituitary glands, hypothalamus, and ovaries, which together affect ovulation and egg production

Can acupuncture help my infertility issue?

Acupuncture may be a great option for you if you’re:

  • A woman in her early to mid-30s
  • Have a weak uterus lining
  • Want to supplement your IVF treatment

If you have a weak uterus lining, acupuncture can help it better absorb nutrients and hormones that provide more strength and structure. A stronger uterus lining is better able to carry a pregnancy.

Acupuncture cannot help with structural issues like:

  • Fibroid tumors
  • Fallopian tube blockages

It also cannot replace hormones you’ve lost with age.

How long does acupuncture fertility treatment take to work?

The length of treatment required to see results depends on your unique body and health. It also depends on if Lisa prescribes any herbal medicine to assist with hormonal balance. 

Generally, though, Lisa recommends 30-minute treatments twice a week for several months. When you first meet with her and discuss your hopes, health, and current and past treatments, you decide upon your acupuncture schedule and herbal medicine regimen together.

If you’re ready to have a baby, but you’re struggling to conceive, don’t give up. Instead, turn to Lisa to learn how holistic fertility treatments can benefit you. To schedule your consultation, call or use the online booking tool today.
