Acupuncture Fertility Tips

Apart from treating various other diseases, acupuncture has been successful in overcoming the problem of infertility. It is considered as a complementary therapy for those who experience infertility. Acupuncture helps in overcoming all functional problems, for example irregular ovulation. As in the case of structural problems like blockages in the sperm ducts such problems are beyond the capacity of acupuncture.

There are many couples worldwide who have been benefited from the Chinese herbs for treating infertility. How acupuncture helps in treating infertility is still debatable, but experts say that it helps in relieving energy flow by application of hair-like needles at the pressure points. A smooth flow of energy results in the greater flow of blood to the reproductive organs of the human body. Once the blood flow is sufficient, it solves many problems related to the function of ovary in females and sperm production in the males.

Women who are undergoing fertility treatments like in vitro fertilization (IVF) are generally under a lot of stress. Acupuncture helps them relax and remove all kinds of stress. There are certain important things that the couple must not overlook while getting acupuncture as a complementary therapy for infertility. The obstetrician, who is undertaking the treatment of infertility, must be informed about the acupuncture procedures. Sometimes it may happen that the obstetrician may not allow it due to some clinical conditions.

When acupuncture is combined with IVF, it must be ensured that this therapy is undertaken at least 3 to 4 months before the IVF treatment or at the end of it. One must not consume any herbs without prior consultation with the obstetrician or medicine specialist. Pregnancy tests should be done before undergoing the next acupuncture course because once pregnant acupuncture may be dangerous. Acupuncture should be got done from a registered practitioner only, and one must insist on using sterilized stainless steel needles only.
