Acupuncture and Fertility

I have completed post-graduate training with Zita West, a specialist in reproductive health.
Fertility Treatment

Acupuncture and fertility treatment can have a positive effect and improve conception chances. It can enhance the function of the whole body and improve overall health. Moreover, preparation for an assisted fertility treatment is essential. (IUI or IVF).

Also, it enhances the natural fertility. Blood tests and further investigations might be necessary in some cases. A healthy pregnancy and giving birth is the goal, not just the conception.

Diet and lifestyle guidance includes eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly. Also, reducing stress and avoiding exposure to various toxins such as alcohol, caffeine and heavy metals help! Nutritionist/Herbalist referrals may be suggested.

Acupuncture and Fertility Treatment can help with the following:

  • Increase blood flow to the reproductive organs
  • Reduces stress
  • Balance hormone levels
  • Reduce the chance of miscarriage
  • Help improve the lining of the uterus and quality of eggs released
  • Improve conditions like polycystic ovaries and endometriosis
  • Increases chances of successful IVF

How Long Does It Take for the Acupuncture and Fertility Treatments to take effect?

There is no quick fix. All patients are unique.  Timeframes are provided for each individual. I usually recommend an initial period of at least 3-4 months. Treatment is regular initially and spaced out thereafter. This enables me to observe the menstrual cycle and treat accordingly. It can often take between 6 and 9 months.
