If you are having difficulty conceiving acupuncture may be your answer.
If you have been trying to conceive for 6 – 12 months you are still having difficulty, you are probably starting to wonder why it’s not happening. Perhaps you’ve had some tests done already and maybe there is an obvious reason or maybe not.
Once all the routine tests have been done, and you know that the difficulty in conceiving is not related to blocked tubes or a medical condition, then we apply a Chinese Medicine diagnosis and treatment to optimizing ovary function and hormonal balance.
There are a few ways Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can help you.
Once the menstrual cycle is properly regulated, so that ovulation occurs at a regular and predictable time, and any menstrual and premenstrual symptoms are cleared up, difficulty in conceiving will be greatly reduced as fertility will be markedly improve.
Women in their late 30’s and early 40’s (or those who have a low AMH level on blood tests) are often concerned about egg quality. While we cannot change the integrity of the chromosomes, the health and vitality of the eggs themselves can be improved.
Sometimes it is not conceiving that is the problem, but successful implantation of the embryo. If the immune environment of the tubes and uterus is not ideal, then local conditions may not allow for embryo development and implantation. We use acupuncture to influence the immune environment.
A healthy diet and maintaining the right weight can have an impact on fertility, and the health of your baby.
Reducing stress levels, and getting adequate sleep are also important in helping to keep your hormones in balance.
