The Ins and outs of Acupuncture for Infertility
Fertility clinics across the nation are using Acupuncture as an adjunct treatment to help women get pregnant. There is a lot of research taking place and evidence showing that Fertility treatments are much more effective with the addition of acupuncture. One such article talks about how it works and the trends that they have seen. Acupuncture typically takes about 3 months for the body to be ready for conception, yet conception can occur sooner or later than that. It can take up to 6-9 months. It is recommended that women come n for weekly treatments. With the acupuncturist, you will go over your entire medical history. The acupuncturist may ask for blood work, hormone measurements, a thyroid panel, medications that you are taking and any other pertinent information.
Acupuncture works to balance hormones, regulate the menstrual cycle, increase blood flow to the uterus, help implantation, prevent miscarriage and overall makes the body a healthy place for a baby to plant its seed in the wall of the uterus. Our Acupuncturist has 10 years of experience with fertility treatments using acupuncture, supplements and Chinese herbs. Further information is discussed in the women’s health section and the infertility section.
Many people do not know that there are other components to fertility issues. There can be an estrogen dominance issue where the body is producing too much estrogen and not enough progesterone. This causes a hormone imbalance and can cause miscarriage. In addition, the thyroid plays a pivotal role in conception. Those with hypothyroidism may not be conceiving and this can have a serious effect. In order to get pregnant, the acupuncturist may need to work on balancing the thyroid and allowing for greater functionality.
An interesting article that was found said that Bromelain may play a major part in allowing for the fetus to implant. This article talks about how you can eat a pineapple and have some great effects. Whatever your case may be, the acupuncturist will go over your condition and discuss treatment options and the number of acupuncture visits needed for the best results for fertility.
