We can significantly increase your chances of conception if your infertility is due to:

  • Amenorrhea
  • Endometriosis
  • Irregular and Anovulatory Menstrual Cycles
  • Luteal Phase Defect LPD
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease PID
  • Premature Ovarian Failure POF
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome PCOS
  • Stress
  • Poor Egg Quality
  • Thin and Unresponsive Endometrium
  • Cervical / Uterine Factors
  • Immunological Factors
  • Fallopian Tube Factors
  • Ovulation Factors

Acupuncture can increase the chances of pregnancy through natural conception, IVF, IUI, and other ARTs. Clinical evidence shows that acupuncture can:

  • Regulate and stabilize hormone levels
  • Help produce more follicles
  • Increase blood flow to the uterus and ovaries by lowering impedance
  • Thicken the endometrial lining
  • Reduce the chance of miscarriage
  • Strengthen the immune system and the overall health of the body
  • Reduce stress
  • Absorb nutrients and maintain ideal weight
  • Facilitate relaxation
  • Improve the quality of sleep

Additionally, acupuncture has NO side effects and doesn’t introduce toxicity to you or your baby

Key points from recent studies:

  1. Acupuncture before IVF increases chances of conception by 65%
  2. One randomized, prospective, controlled clinical study showed that the pregnancy rates can more than double (15.6% to 33.6%) for IVF/ICSI treatment when acupuncture was given.
  3. Another randomized, prospective, controlled clinical study showed that miscarriage rates can decrease (15.4% to 11.8%) for IVF/ICSI treatment when acupuncture was given.
  4. A third randomized, prospective, controlled clinical study showed that implantation rates can almost triple (5.9% to 14.2%) for IVF/ICSI treatment when acupuncture was given.
  5. Using doppler ultrasonography, it was shown that acupuncture can lower arterial uterine blood flow impedance, a key to optimal endometrial receptivity.
  6. Clinical and experimental evidence shows that acupuncture has long-lasting benefits for women who suffer from polycystic ovaries syndrome (PCOS) and anovulation.
  7. Acupuncture can benefit men who have abnormal sperm.
  8. A randomized, prospective trial showed that a single session of acupuncture can increase the chances of pregnancy in infertile women.
