How Acupuncture Can Have A Positive Impact On Your Fertility
By Dr. Shari Auth, Co-Founder of WTHN
At WTHN, our mission is to empower our clients to achieve their best health and to be their partner throughout the journey. We have a significant amount of clients that come to us for fertility support (both male and female), and are thrilled to have supported many women (the last time we counted, it was 17!) from trying to conceive through a healthy pregnancy through postpartum care.
Trying to get pregnant naturally or through IVF can be an incredibly stressful time, and acupuncture is a great way to help reduce stress by decreasing cortisol levels in the brain. Acupuncture also helps increase circulation, and research has shown that it helps increase blood flow to the uterus, thus helping improve chances of conception. Acupuncture isn’t just for the ladies either! Research has shown that it helps improve sperm quality and sperm count.
Here are just a few of the ways in which acupuncture can have a positive impact on your fertility:
Acupuncture helps to bring our hormones into balance, whether it’s reproductive hormones or emotional hormones.
Acupuncture brings fresh circulation to the reproductive organs to increase fertility and boost sex drive.
Acupuncture helps to optimize the body’s functions, whether it’s boosting immunity, digestion, sleep, or fertility.
Research shows that acupuncture naturally boosts fertility for both men and women and that it measurably increases the pregnancy success rate for IVF.
So, if you're trying to conceive, give acupuncture a try! It can help balance your hormones, reduce stress, and improve sperm quality—all facilitating your body's ability to accept an embryo.
