Starting a family doesn’t always come easily, and many men and women experience problems conceiving. Fortunately, there are natural and effective ways that couples can overcome the obstacles—including acupuncture. If you are exploring ways to improve your chances of getting pregnant, Cindy E. Levitz, Lic. Acupuncturist, PLLC, in New York City, offers some insight into acupuncture care for fertility.
How Can Acupuncture Address Issues With Fertility?
Treating specific acupuncture points based on your particular systemic imbalances can re-adjust the body’s functioning in ways that improve one’s ability to conceive. For example, the American Pregnancy Association recognizes that acupuncture helps regulate thyroid disorders that can impair a woman’s fertility. The treatment can also regulate the central nervous system and optimize hormone production for improved chances of conception, as well as increase blood flow to the pelvic region, which may support ovarian health.
Acupuncture isn’t just beneficial for women's health; as research indicates, acupuncture is linked to improved sperm quality in men. It also reduces anxiety and stress for both men and women which affects fertility, as well as quality of life. As a non-invasive, non-medicating, natural approach, many women have found that this is an excellent way to significantly increase their chances to conceive. Compared to other options, it is also highly effective and safe when performed by a licensed acupuncture specialist. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be used prior to or in conjunction with IVF. It provides an affordable way to enhance conception and often saves thousands of dollars by avoiding the need for IVF, or reducing the number of cycles needed to be successful.
When Should Treatment Begin?
If you are considering acupuncture to improve fertility, it is best to start treatment at least three months prior to trying to conceive. For optimal results, individuals should follow a regular and consistent treatment schedule as recommended by their acupuncturist. Additionally, acupuncture care is very beneficial to women who are pregnant. Under the care of a qualified acupuncturist, you can boost immunity, ease morning sickness, and reduce or relieve pain and fatigue to allow for a more comfortable, healthier pregnancy and birth.
