Acupuncture is phenomenal when it comes to fertility. Acupuncture addresses the root of the issue, without side effects (unlike other alternative reproductive techniques). The process of becoming pregnant can be very stressful. Acupuncture reduces stress, releases endorphins, and balances hormones. If you have an irregular cycle, acupuncture treatments can balance and regulate your cycle, making it easier to conceive.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), acupuncture can treat more than 120 common diseases and conditions. However, some diseases and conditions can be more effectively treated by acupuncture than others. Acupuncture can enhance other forms of treatment, speed recovery after surgery, reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and improve emotional stability. So yes, acupuncture can help with infertility by balancing the body and allowing it to naturally heal itself.

Acupuncture can help to stimulate ovulation and improve blood flow to encourage the growth of a thick uterine lining, important for implantation of the embryo. Acupuncture also balances a woman's hormones, including estrogen, progesterone, and cortisol to aid in fertility, and helps to correct other imbalances that may be interfering in conception.

Acupuncture works in infertility by lowering stress hormones(cortisol), increasing blood flow to the uterus and ovaries, balancing sex hormones (progesterone, estrogen) and supporting ovulation.
