We have had a great deal of positive research on the subject of fertility using Acupuncture and most have focused on the effect of Acupuncture on increasing the success rates of IVF (In Vitro Fertilization). Overall the results show an increase of anywhere from 45-65% in the success rate using acupuncture.
Not only can acupuncture increase the chances of getting pregnant, but it can also help in carrying to term, realigning a fetus in breech position and helping the birth process more smooth.
Acupuncture works in several ways; by reducing stress which weakens the body, by increasing circulation to the reproductive organs and by helping to correct other constitutional conditions individual to each person.
Acupuncture is not magic and is not a guarantee to fix all problems, but it is a great tool to use in conjunction with your doctor, midwife and other heath care workers.
Treatments are available for both men and women.
