Research has proved Acupuncture can be extremely helpful for both females and males when trying for a baby. It is useful for both natural or Assisted Reproductive conceptions.
Infertility in couples is often regarded after regular unprotected intercourse for two years not resulting in conception. It is estimated that one in seven couples in the UK now have difficulties in conceiving (HFEA 2006). Unfortunately, unexplained infertility is one of the main diagnosis and often stress can one of the main causes for both sexes.
Acupuncture can help in a number of ways:
- For females, regulating their menstrual cycles and hormonal release during ovulation and implantation, ensuring an increase of blood supply to the reproductive organs, improving womb linings to aid embryo implantation, help with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), blocked Fallopian tubes, aid with IVF cycle, stress.
- For males, increasing sperm count, mobility, motility and morphology, stress.
