Here is a very good article which explains how acupuncture can benefit couples who are struggling to conceive as well as anyone trying to have a baby.

The article refers to a study which showed that acupuncture relieved the stress and anxiety in couples struggling to conceive and helped increase both pregnancy outcomes and quality of life.

“One study showed that adding acupuncture during IVF may almost double your chances of conceiving. Regular acupuncture treatments may improve reproductive hormones, ovarian function, implantation, blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, and many other aspects involved in conception.”

Acupuncture improves the chances of having a baby without doubt, be that naturally or via IVF. It can regulate menstrual cycles, treat endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, low ovarian reserve, male fertility issues, amongst other gynae or reproductive issues. IVF can be a “rollercoaster” emotionally and physically, as well as financially. Availing of acupuncture can make this “rollercoaster ride” so much easier.

Acupuncture is a branch of medicine over 3,000 years old which works at a physical, emotional and spiritual level. It is is drug-free and complements IVF medications. It sends more blood flow to the reproductive system (male and female), modulates hormones and is an excellent stress reliever.

I treat a lot of couples and women who are trying to conceive naturally or are undergoing IVF. It is particularly beneficial to have acupuncture on the day of embryo transfer . Studies have shown that it can increase the success rate by as much as 40%.
