Many women that struggle with fertility issues are driven to seek treatment options that work. With treatments ranging from surgery, to fertility drugs & in vitro fertilization, there are many options open to couples hoping to conceive.
However, these options can be costly and might not work for everyone. And for these women, acupuncture can be an effective, more holistic alternative.
Causes of Infertility
One of the most common causes of infertility is an ovulation disorder, where hormonal imbalances prevent the release of a mature egg from the ovary.
Stress is also capable of preventing a woman from ovulating entirely. Stress can impede the movement and implantation of a fertilized egg by creating spasms in the fallopian tubes and uterus. Stress can also impact male fertility by altering sperm counts and motility.
Acupuncture & Fertility
Though acupuncture is mostly known for its pain- and stress-relieving benefits, it can also be an effective part of fertility treatment.
Acupuncture infertility treatment helps to release endorphins, which counters the effects of stress and cortisol, as well as stabilizing the endocrine system and improving blood flow to the endocrine system.
