Research has found that acupuncture therapy can have a positive effect on those trying for a baby and can actually aid the conception process. Fertility focused acupuncture treatment has been found to increase blood flow to the reproductive organs, balance hormone levels, regulate the menstrual cycle and help improve the lining of the uterus and quality of eggs released.
Additionally, conditions such as polycystic ovaries and endometriosis have also been shown to improve with regular Acupuncture treatment. Benefits to male fertility have also been found with positive effects on sperm count, morphology and mobility.
As trying to conceive can often be a stressful experience, many find that undergoing a course of acupuncture reduces associated problems such as anxiety, stress and insomnia and helps to improve the chances of pregnancy by improving well being in general.
