Acupuncture for Infertility and Pregnancy

Acupuncture for Infertility and Pregnancy Acupuncture is used to treat a wide range infertility, pregnancy, and post-partum issues. Research has shown that infertility acupuncture regulates menstrual cycles, reduces stress and anxiety, balances hormonal systems, and increases blood flow to the uterus, which improves the chances of implantation. Infertility acupuncture is gaining acceptance in Western medical practice, and a growing number of practitioners use acupuncture as an integral part of IVF protocols. Men also benefit from infertility acupuncture; research has shown acupuncture can increase sperm count, quality, and motility.

Pregnancy acupuncture focuses primarily on keeping the mother-to-be comfortable, free of stress, and in balance. Common pregnancy issues such as nausea, vomiting, insomnia, and back pain can be treated by acupuncture. Gestational diabetes, pre-eclampsia, and PUPPs may also respond to acupuncture treatments. Moxibustion acupuncture is very successful at correcting breech presentations, with recent studies showing a 75-92.5% success rate. Acupuncture can be used to induce labor, and during labor aids with relaxation, uterine contractions, cervical dilation, and pain relief.

After the baby is born, post-partum acupuncture can help restore the body to a balanced state and alleviate post-partum depression. Lactation problems, mastitis, prolonged bleeding and abdominal pain can be treated with post-partum acupuncture. Acupuncture also relieves the stress and fatigue that go hand-in-hand with a new baby.
