How can Acupuncture Affect Fertility?

Acupuncture enhances fertility. Period. (no pun intended).

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to regulate the menstrual cycle, improve egg quality, and support a healthy uterine lining. A recent meta-analysis shows acupuncture increases IVF success rates (live birth rate) by 33.8%. How does it work? When the hair-thin needles are inserted in specific acupuncture points unique to your presentation, they:

1. Send signals to your brain that regulate the HPO and HPA axis (think hormone balance).

2. Increase pelvic blood flow to support a healthy uterine lining and improve egg quality (even the points on your extremities have been show to improve blood flow in your uterus).

3. Encourage a parasympathetic nervous system shift (more rest and digest, less fight or flight). Stress hormones compete with sex hormones. This is why a calm nervous system is key when trying to conceive.
