Infertility is a condition that prevents conception. This often heartbreaking reproductive issue affects nearly 15 percent of couples.
For women, the most common Western diseases that cause infertility are:
- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
- Hormonal imbalances
- Luteal phase defect
- Irregular or painful periods
Men's issues with infertility include:
- Sperm count
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) terms, infertility is an imbalance in Qi. We use acupuncture and herbs to balance the body, correct the flow of Qi and blood, and nourish the essence so the couple can conceive.
Acupuncture stimulates blood flow to the uterus, improving the thickness of the lining of the uterus and making it more receptive to the embryo. Acupuncture can also calm uterine contractions to make for easier implantation. For men, TCM can improve the quality and quantity of the sperm to improve the chances of conception.
Our practitioners work hard to provide a calm and supportive experience. We have helped many couples conceive.
