Acupuncture can improve fertility in many ways. One of the main effects of a treatment is to reduce stress, increase blood flow and balance the body system. According to several studies and medical research, these effects affect in a positive way the whole reproductive and endocrine system in both male and female.
One of the ways acupuncture treatment can help a patient to increase fertility is by reducing stress which is often a key factor in the fertility of both men and women. When people are under stress, the hormone cortisol is released in the brain. This alters the brain's neurochemical balance, thus changing hormone levels and disrupting the pituitary balance that is key to the reproductive cycle. Chinese medicine can help support a woman through this important time in her life whether it is emotionally or physically. Acupuncture can help with not only conception but also with morning sickness, nausea, aches and pains, anxiety preparation for birth, insomnia, and among many others. Men also can get help improving sperm count and motility from acupuncture as well. The goal of treatment to improve fertility from a Chinese Medicine perspective is not just to improve the conception factors, but to stay pregnant and to have a healthy baby
