Female Infertility can arise when one or both partners have physiological or structural factors that affect reproduction. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine seeks to address these concerns by restoring proper endocrine function and alleviating symptoms arising from structural abnormalities.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be used alone or alongside western medical fertility treatments such as fertility drugs, surgery, artificial insemination, IVF, GIFT, ZIFT, and ICSI to reduce side effects and optimize the chances of conceiving.
Common conditions treated include:
- Unexplained Infertility
- Poor Egg Quality and Low Ovarian Reserve
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
- Difficulties with Ovulation (Anovulation)
- Female tube blockages (due to pelvic inflammatory disease, sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia, or previous sterilization procedures).
