Pregnancy Possibilities Rise With Acupuncture

| July 3, 2010 | 0 Comments | 183 views

The success of one's pregnancy may be influenced by several factors or treatments; one of which that has received some attention is acupuncture. Infertile couples should explore all of their treatment options with a fertility specialist to determine which is right for them. Many traditional western treatments are often used, although some couples use other methods such as acupuncture.

In many cases, acupuncture is combined with various herbal medicines. Whether this treatment is used to treat infertility may depend on the cause of infertility. While acupuncture may not help patients with more serious complications achieve a successful pregnancy, it may help to relieve stress and improve ovarian function.

Some patients may begin treatment three to four months before conception, whether through natural means or assisted reproductive technologies, such as in vitro fertilization, and other fertility treatments. Treatment typically lasts for about twelve weeks following conception, as most miscarriages occur within the first three months.

Patients suffering from a variety of fertility conditions may be considered candidates for acupuncture. Endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, low sperm count, poor egg quality, low ovarian reserve, advanced maternal age, implantation failure and a variety of other conditions may be treated with acupuncture. However, the extent of effectiveness may vary and depend on the severity of the condition. The best resource for information regarding acupuncture's effects on fertility is a physician.

The reason for acupuncture's success with pregnancy is not fully understood. The treatment helps to increase blood flow to reproductive organs, reduces stress, increases the thickness of the uterine lining, improves sperm count and improves egg quality. These benefits may help some couples achieve conception.

Those interested in acupuncture as a fertility treatment or to be used in conjunction with other fertility treatments are encouraged to speak with a medical professional at a reputable fertility clinic in their area.
