Prior to making the decision to use Clomid, or doing IUI’s or IVF, trying Natural Fertility Treatment with acupuncture and Chinese herbs can be a viable option. Acupuncture can help regulate your cycle and facilitate a healthy pregnancy. In clinical trials, acupuncture has been shown to significantly increase conception rates and decrease miscarriage rates.

In women, acupuncture has been clinically shown to increase the blood supply to the uterus and ovaries, as well as promote timely ovulation and an ideal luteal phase. Acupuncture seems to have a regulating effect on the body’s hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis and can help make an irregular or anovulatory cycle normal.

We have had great success treating infertility  with acupuncture, herbs and sound nutrition. Issues such as high FSH levels (follicle stimulating hormone), polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, ovulation problems, unexplained infertility, poor ovarian reserve, poor egg quality, luteal phase defect, chronic miscarriage, thin endometrium, irregular periods and amenorrhea have been resolved and healthy conception has ensued.

Acupuncture and herbal medicine isn’t just for women. Male Infertility factor can also be addressed. For men, there is evidence showing acupuncture’s ability to increase sperm count, as well as improve motility and morphology percentages.

As specialists in the treatment of reproductive enhancement, we recognize that every person and couple having difficulty conceiving needs individualized treatment because no two people present with the exact same issues. With that customized approach, acupuncture treatment can be an effective means to aid conception in most cases of infertility.

How long will it take for me to get pregnant?

This very much depends on each couple’s individual situation. We’ve seen success anywhere from the first month (or menstrual cycle) to 6-9 months or cycles later. Most patients (men and women) need approximately 3 months of treatment to find success.

Studies have shown, however, that some couples will succeed at the 6-9 month mark, as it can take that long for their cycles to be fully regulated and ready to conceive. For women, consistent treatment is important so specific hormonal adjustments can be made at each week of the cycle using acupuncture and herbs.

Every week is a significant opportunity to heal a particular segment of the four-phase menstrual cycle (menstruation, follicular phase, ovulation, and luteal phase). For male factor, a typical course of 10 weeks can do the trick, as it usually takes a full sperm generating cycle (72 days approx).

Remember that trying to get pregnant is a statistical game. The more you try, naturally or with Assisted Reproductive Technologies (IVF/IUI), the better your chances are. This applies to Acupuncture as well – the longer you allow it to correct and balance your body, the better your chances are.

Unfortunately, there is no quick path when it comes to conception and full-term pregnancy of a healthy child, but it’s well worth the wait!
