Acupuncture for Fertility: What You Need to Know

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practice that is helpful to boost fertility. Regardless of what part of the fertility journey you are on, whether it’s trying to conceive (TTC) naturally, or by using a fertility center and possibly pursuing IVF or IUI, Cloud 9 Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine can help. 

There is some scientific evidence to support the use of acupuncture for fertility. A study published in the journal Fertility and Sterility found that women who received acupuncture in addition to conventional fertility treatments were more likely to conceive than those who received only conventional treatments.

If you are considering acupuncture for fertility, it is important to find a qualified acupuncturist who has experience in this area. You should also be aware that acupuncture is not a cure for infertility, but it may be a helpful complementary treatment.

Here are some of the ways that acupuncture can help improve fertility:

  • Reduce stress: Stress can have a negative impact on fertility, and acupuncture is fantastic at reducing stress by promoting relaxation and balance.
  • Improve blood flow: Acupuncture helps to improve blood flow to the reproductive organs, which is essential for egg and sperm health.
  • Increase the release of hormones: Acupuncture helps to increase the release of hormones that are important for fertility, such as follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH).
  • Improve the lining of the uterus: Acupuncture helps to improve the lining of the uterus, which makes it more receptive to implantation.
