Acupuncture is a safe and effective complementary therapy for a variety of fertility and hormonal conditions, which many of our patients also find particularly helpful for managing stress and promoting relaxation.
You may wish to consider acupuncture:
Western medical acupuncture involves an understanding of physiology, anatomy, illness and health. It is a painless process that involves the use of carefully placed, very fine needles over a period of time, to achieve cumulative therapeutic effects.
Acupuncture is widely considered to be beneficial for a range of illnesses and symptoms, from clearly defined complaints such as back and dental pain, headaches, vomiting and neck ache to more general symptoms such as nausea or low energy.
For fertility issues, the needles are placed in specific points to target the reproductive organs including the uterus and ovaries. Increasingly women are choosing acupuncture to support them through their fertility journey, pregnancy, labour and after giving birth.
Acupuncture can promote the release of key hormones, including follicle stimulating hormones, whilst affecting oestrogen and progesterone levels.
Acupuncture can help improve blood flow to the ovaries for follicle development and also to the uterus, improving the thickness of the endometrial lining for embryo implantation.
By reducing sympathetic nerve activity and balancing hormone levels, acupuncture may help to reduce the number of ovarian cysts, stimulate ovulation, enhance blastocyst implantation and regulate the menstrual cycle in women with PCOS.
