Acupuncture has been used in Eastern cultures for countless centuries where it is used as a primary source of preventative medicine. Acupuncture treatment can support male and femail infertility and reproductive health generally.
There are a number of ways in which acupuncture can benefit women undergoing IVF/ART, these include:
Increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs, thereby increasing the thickness of the womb lining and increasing the chances of successful implantation.
Regulating fertility hormones throughout the course of treatment.
Increasing egg production and improving egg quality.
For men - clinical trials suggest that acupuncture improves sperm motility, increases sperm count, improves sperm quality and has a beneficial effect on psychogenic erectile dysfunction.
