Acupuncture for Infertility

Acupuncture for fertility combined with herbal medicine, has been used for centuries to treat fertility disorders including spasmed tubes, elevated follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), repeated pregnancy loss, unexplained (idiopathic) infertility, luteal phase defect, hyperprolactinemia (when not caused by a prolactinoma), pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) with anovulatory cycles, and male factor including men affected with sperm-DNA-fragmentation.

Acupuncture combined with Chinese herbs will improve ovarian and follicular function, and increase blood flow to the endometrium, helping to facilitate a thick, rich lining.

Patients can even get treatment before and after an insemination, IVF, or donor-egg transfer to increase the success rate. However points including Gallbladder 21, Stomach 12, Large Intestine 4, Spleen 6, Bladder 60, Bladder 67 and any points on the lower abdomen and lower back should be avoided when the patient is pregnant or pregnancy is suspected.

There are minimal risks when using acupuncture for fertility treatment when done by a licensed and board certified acupuncturist. Acupuncture is not contraindicated for anyone regardless what medications they are taking.
